Hi Marty (a.k.a. Mary Ann),
I'm a day late, but in the right ballpark. Hope you had a fine birthday with many celebratory messages that warmed your spirit and brought you smiles... and that you also had some just plain old fun. We are living the Chinese blessing (curse?) -- may you live in interesting times. My work in the nonprofit world has dramatically intensified due to federal budget cuts and the Trump Tax Reform Act. Because of these cuts, we have a fabulous organization here in Helena, MT that serves some 900 individuals with with developmental disabilities in 5 communities... that is closing its doors on April 13th. A real tragedy. And we have a lot of other organizations that are now at risk. So there is plenty for me to do that keeps me off the streets -- but not necessarily out of trouble.
Best wishes for the year ahead -- good health, much joy, and a multitude of rewarding experiences that nourish your heart and soul.

Hi Mary Ann (although you'll always be Marty to me!),
Well, for 2 short weeks we were both 70 -- but as of today, you're now listed as older than I am! I hope all is well with you, and that you are celebrating your birthday in fun ways.
Plans have changed, and I'll be staying in Montana for the foreseeable future. Hard to believe that I've been here in this beautiful landscape for nearly half of my life. Still working full-time, and as long as my health holds out, and i don't lose too many marbles -- I'll keep working in the nonprofit sector as a social change activist.
Hugs to you on your special day.
Hey, John.... I had sent you birthday wishes last week -- but obviously, I did something wrong, because the message did not appear here. Some days technology is not my friend Hope all is well with you, and I hope you had a great birthday. Take good care, Mike Schechtman.

Well, I'm a day late.... but I'm in the right ballpark. Hope you had a wonderful birthday, and that all is well with you.
i'm still here in the mountains of Montana, but it looks like I'll be relocating to the Boston area by year-end so my wife Holly and I will be living together once again. (She's been living and working in the Boston area since January of 2015).
Best wishes for a healthy, happy and quite excellent year.

Happy Birthday!!! Glad to see that you are still working and doing your bit to keep the economy going. I'm in the midst of a transition plan to keep working, but at some point.... fewer hours and less responsibilities. If all goes according to plan, I'll relocate to the Boston area by the end of this year, work remotely from my wife's apartment, and periodically fly back to Montana to work on-site. That means I should be able to improve my attendance record for class reunions (1 for 50 through our first half-century of reunions), and be able to see you while we both have some hair left on our heads
Have a great birthday!!

Sending you my best wishes for a happy birthday..... all the way from the mountains of Montana, across this vast country, over the Atlantic... to London. Missed you at the 50th reunion, but I know it's a long way to swim.... I was in the Boston area in late March and early April to visit my wife Holly, who relocated there to help with her dad (he's 88, in a nursing home on Long Island, challenged by dementia and hearing loss, and generally going down hill) and her aunt (who lives in western Mass, and is developmentally disabled, and Holly is the legal guardian). A complicated period of family transitions. Not clear yet whether I'll move East, or be the wandering Jew, traveling back and forth. One step at a time.
I hope this quick note finds you doing well. Wishing you a wonderful next year, with good health and much joy in every day.
Happy Birthday! It was great to see you at reunion. Hope all is well. Brian
