A little before my time. I graduated in 92 I also went to Hermosa all 3 years. Pretty cool to meet someone on here that lived there. Funny thing about Hermosa is I live just off 20th and Hutton less than a mile from Heights and yet I was in the Hermosa district. Farmington gotta love it! LOL As soon as I graduated I left for the Army and never looked back.

Yup--38th Street here.  I went back in 2004 for my 20th reunion.  Aside from a few new houses, Pinon Hills golf course, and the WalMart, not a ****ing thing different.

Yes, shortly after they met.  They were working in Farmington, he at the HS, during the depression, one summer in between college semesters.

Where are you in Iowa? I think there are one or two members here from there.

I went to some elementary and jr high in WDesMoines. Step family was from Council Bluffs.
