Walter, Dickie and Phillip having a great memorable visit.
This note was received from our classmate Walter and he said that on November 14th they had their third meeting of the Alabama Chapter of the Class of 59'ers at Wintzells Restaurant on the lake in Guntersville, roughly equidistant from Dickie Matherne, Phillip Doiron, and himself. They had a great evening with sweet tea, seafood, and a birthday bread pudding served compliments of his sneaky older daughter, Beth, who innocently asked him where they were going and not-so-innocently called up and ratted him out on his 68th being that day. A picture of all their smiling faces above. He continued to say that the only flaw is that the rest of us weren’t there to correct our time-worn memories and to add things they might have forgotten or tried to forget. They plan to meet again in late January, after deer season, in Birmingham, where new good restaurants continue to open despite the economy. They would all like to ask our non-Alabama classmates and those a little older and a little younger to join us there if they might be able and willing. No banquets, no speeches, just fun, remembering, and catching up with old friends. Best Wishes, Walter
