About don26812

I have been an amateur photographer essentially my entire life, getting my first camera when I was eight. I got involved in digital photography in the mid-90s, when the first consumer color printers and hand scanners became available, and bought my first digital camera in 1999. I retired from a thirty-three year engineering and management career in aerospace in 2000. I thought it would be fun to teach digital photography. I have been teaching digital photography courses part time in adult education since then. I pretty much got in on the ground floor in the local area and currently teach several different classes, I developed, for two school districts. In 2006 I spent six weeks cruising Alaska as a volunteer Photoshop Elements instructor for High Seas Computing Services. I am currently part of the Adobe prerelease user beta test team for Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements and Photoshop.

I stumbled onto this post by Vickie Canulli in the Leuzinger High School group. It was posted in 2010. Thanks, Vickie!

Climax to the Poker Group’s 2017 Road Trip


In September, Leuzinger 1963 classmates, Gerald Miwa, Gary Crone, Shigeru Watanabe, Steve Mortenson, Norman Kajikawa (65), and I met in Santa Fe, NM to go on a week-long road trip in NM, AZ, and CO.

This video was shot and produced by Gerald. It captures what was described as the highlight of the trip by him and the others. I can see why. Unfortunately I headed for home one day early and missed out on the experience. My bad.

2017 Classes of 1961-1965 Reunion Party Has Come and Gone


The 2017 edition of the Leuzinger HS Classes of 1961-1965 Reunion Party was held on October 7, 2017. As has been the case for the past few years it was hosted by Gini Gardner (63). About eighty people from these classes attended this year.

It was stated previously, that this would be the last party of this type that Gini would be able to host. However, for those of us who attended, the prevailing hope is something like this can be pulled off next year and in the future.

For us, the Class of 1963, our our 55th aniversary is coming next year. Those at the party that I talked with were universally in favor of having a Class of 63 Reunion in 2018. I would really like to hear your thoughts on this. Either email me (donstouder@ca.rr.com) or leave a comment below.

For those of you who were not able to join us, below is a YouTube video showing the group photo that was taken.
