Mike Willis in "Two Bit Taj Mahal"

Eleven of our WTW 67 classmates watched Mike Willis perform in the play "Two Bit Taj Mahal" last night at the George Mason University. All I can say is that if any of you have an opportunity to see him perform, it is well worth your while. He truly is a natural. Our group met early for dinner, carpooled over to the theater and were totally enthralled with the entire performance. Afterwards, Mike was kind enough to meet us again at a nearby establishment where we laughed and picked his brain all about the play. We just had a great time!

Now's the time to keep it going

I'm really pleased with the way you have responded so far to the request for questionnaires. I've already got answers back from eight or nine people and the promise of answers from a half dozen more.

We still need more, though, and I have been pursuing some of them on my own. In addition to asking more of you to send in your own, I would appreciate it greatly if you would go to the other blog -- When I'm 64 -- and help me in a different way.

I'm going to post a different file for each of the people who have sent in their questionnaires, and as I get more, I'll add them to the list. If you know these people now, or if you knew them in high school or later, please take a couple of minutes and write at least a paragraph or two (more is welcome) about them that I can use in the stories about them.

Off to a very strong start

The response from many of you has been good to our initial request for participation in "When I'm 64," our proposed book about what a long, strange trip the Class of '67 has been through.

We're going to do something that could help tremendously with the research and reporting for the book. I have set up another blog site, called "When I'm 64," on which I'm going to post people and topics for which I'm seeking memories. When you check it out, the idea is that you will add comments of your own that can be used in the book as we see fit.

I hope you will visit the site frequently as I add things to it.
