What a crazy life it has been since graduating from AHS in 1964.
I lived in Boston, NYC and had a rock band where we lived on a farm in New Hampshire for a year; Ventured on a Motorcycle all over the US and Canada ending up in San Francisco a few blocks from the Grateful Dead and Berkley for a time during the upheaval there and settled in LA in 1967 where I still reside.
My profession in TV Production has taken me all over the world and I still have that yearning to see new places, different cultures and meet new people.
To quote Jerry Garcia, "What a long strange trip it has been."
Playing competitive Volleyball and winning a slew of medals has been a large part of my life the last 20 years and I am blessed with good health so will continue. Looking forward to seeing you folks even though we haven't kept in touch much. Email me at vballer@roadrunner.com

JFK Assassination

I was walking home along Mass. Av. in the autumn haze hanging in the air, when a bus full of other kids stopped near me and several terrified children screamed and cried out, "The President is DEAD!" "Kennedy was shot "
My heart disintegrated and for reasons I couldn't explain, the pit of my stomach knotted up and I cried in fear and sorrow ... like so many others... I hastened my steps to return home, all the while hearing people scream and cry along the way.

It is also the 55th anniversary of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. Any comments?

I watched the show with my family on our 21" Black and White TV.
seeing/hearing them and the audience reaction turned my life upside down! I went from being a Folk music snob to a full fledged Beatles fan overnight ! I combed my hair down much to the dismay of my Music teacher who quipped, "with that hair style, you are coming on like a fruit"

Reunion Committee?

No

So sad to see this. Like others that posted I remeber Richie fodly, I was in the BoyScout troop at the 1st Baptist church but saw Richie and the others mentioned at a number of Boy Scout activities. I am glad to see he had a good life and a great family.  Rest in Peace.  -----    Ron

I didn't know him after High School, but I remember him as a cofident, popular person who was not judgfmenetal and very supportive of his friends.

This was a few months ago while shooting using a wireless rig at one of the computer game shows for Sony.
