are graduating high school in fourteen months.

Sigh.

The one in the red cap is John Dominic Meo, and in June 2017 he will be finishing Grant High School in three years; the older boy is Michael Kepler Meo, international opera star of the future when this picture was taken.

Hmm . . . the face of the gentleman in a black hood is that of the recent candidate for statewide office on behalf of the Progressive Party of Oregon.  But he was a longtime Green when I worked with him.

Tempus fugit

Update 2 June 2016:  This just in from the usually reliable Beverly Brown.

Michael, Terry died, Chris Henry was staying with her and he forgot he put a shirt over a lamp and her mobile home caught fire–no insurance and she lost everything–,and her son committed suicide.

That is to say, the man in the black hood, the one who ran for (I believe it was) Attorney General on the Progressive Party ticket, had previously caused the destruction of all his dear friend’s possessions and the death of her son.

The grinning face of Death over my left shoulder.
