Fellow Nerk Baby Boomers. I trust those who attend the reunion will share their journeys and hopefully, not too many Organ Recitals (whick organs like the kidneys and liver and such that are wearing out). My life jouneys have mostly been outside of the USA. I really enjoyed our 25th reunion. My focus is on consulting our great American military and families on identifying new jobs after they leave the military. My avocation is helping internation missionaries fulfill their mission goals of Helping Others in the Name of Jesus. We have active projects throughout the Far and South East Asia. If any are in this area, please contact me at 01182117198020. My email is BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM Hoping to make 50th Reunion Grace and Peace, Chris Vaia

School Story:

Little football, lot of Choir, lots of weekend Happy Day type adventures with our Fonzy - Kerri Ricker. Roller Rink and Flint Ridge and Lovers Lane and Buckeye Lake and Eagles and East end and dreams of what lies beyond NERK.

Birthday Greetings Sandy from Gulf Breeze. FL

We send you wishes for good health and joy and the Peace that Passes Understanding. I remember that you were moving or have returned to good ole Nerk. I hope you are still writing and maybe performing. My favorite songwriter and performer is a wonderful lady who is about 10 months older than me. LOL You certainly know her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvgHfqXHS-8

We recently went to the Creek Indian Casino in Atmore, AL. We added their senior programs to our small outreach balloon twisting ministry. Good Lord Willing, we will see this plague being more mitigated around Easter time and can start again.

Grace and Peace, Chris and Sally

Ho Moke,
May you and your family have good health and joy and the Peace that Passes Understanding. After 40+ years overseas, our Good Lord led us to the Panhandle of Florida. We have our sun screen ready for summer. LOL

Dear Carol,

Wishng you a blessed birthday and six days before we celebrate the birthday of our Jesus Christ God's Son Savior. After 40+ years overseas, we just relocated from the ROK to Gulf Breeze FL area last month. If you all are traveling to the Panhandle of FL, you will have a friendly family welcoming you and your Family. Praying for all to have a blessed Christmas and a healthy and joyful and Peace that Passes Understanding year in 2021. You have certainly lived a life of serving others. We are anxious to start up our little Hallelujah Balloon Twisting ministry in our new communities once this plague has passed. Grace and Peace, Chris and Sally Vaia

Greetings Edwin,
i remember your picture and recall you were one of the nice guys, unlike the Rascals I hung around with. It is good to see another man and wife havin such a long and blessed marriage. When Lisa was born, I got drafted and ended up spending 30 years in the Army. After my third tour in Vietnam, I lost the thrill of being a Grunt and lucked out with Transortation for about a year and then a Career Counselor for over 20 years. Were you in Vietnam also and how long did you stay in the Army? We just relocated from the ROK to the Florida Panhandle. After 40 years overseas, this is a new adventure for us. My daughter - Jeni found a picture of me from 1970 in Cambodia. She never did quite believe it was me. LOL Now, our small ministry is as the Hallelujah Balloon Brother and Sister. After this plague passes, we hope to start up another ministry in this area. Trusting you and your family are in good health and having joy and the Peace that Passeth Understanding. Grace and Peace, Chris and Sally in the Panhandle of FL

Dear Karen,
Birthday blessings from the Republic of Korea. We imagine the changing season is great on your farm. Good Lord Willing, we'll fly from the ROK for Mary Esther FL on 2 November. I have over 40 years overseas and look forward to new adventures in the States. We made our last two mini harvests from our church garden. BTW, do you have any contact with Dick Vorris who is also a plumber and handyman in ole Nerk? Keep enjoying your little preview of Heaven. Four years ago on a small island near Korea, we started thinking about Florida. LOL
With wishes for all of you to have good health and joy and the Peace that Passes Understanding, Chris and Sally in the ROK

Dear Pete,
We send you wishes for good health and joy and the Peace that Passes Understanding. May you and Phil continue you loving journeys together in good ole Nerk. After 40 years overseas, Sally and I, Good Lord Willing, move from the Republic of Korea to Mary Esther FL this year. We have a small ministry for nursing homes and I help Viet Nam Veterans with depression and long term illnesses.
