Ballard High School
"Class of 1966"
Website

Hello classmates and other visitors to our Ballard High School’s Class of 1966 website. As of today, November 29th 2018, we have had a total of 71,529 visitors to our site and to top that we have had 2,273 visits this month alone. We do hope you are able to find information on our site that is informative, funny and reflective to you and to the memories you may have from days long past. We continue to post video clips taken from current events to other more reflective subject matter that may bring a small tear to your eyes.
In reference, The Alaskan Way Viaduct was built in three phases from 1949 through 1953 and opened on April 4, 1953. It featured an elevated section of State Route 99 that runs north and south along the Elliott Bay waterfront through downtown Seattle and continues on through the industrial district. Most of us from the class of 66’ were born just prior to the construction and have utilized the road way throughout our lives. As you may know the structure will be disassembled and taken away starting in January 2019 as the newly constructed tunnel replacement project opens for service. Lost is a structure that has tired through the years and became subject to a major tragedy should a miner earthquake happen. But also lost is the beautiful views of the city, waterways and snow capped Olympic Mountains.
We have included a reflective video clip taken from a car drive north on the viaduct that became the backdrop of our annual classmates deceased list. This clip is included in our 2018 Annual Picnic video presentation that can be found at the bottom of our “Details of Events” page.
 
Please send us your desires, concerns and or ideas you may have in regards to this website. The intentions of our class website is an attempt to keep us all together and from time to time take us back to the way it used to be.
Thank you for being part of this. 

 



A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started."

Her neighbor asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"
The little silver haired lady says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster."

Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.
She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster."

He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then..." he said with a deep sigh”

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little   to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" 
The teacher paused then asked the class, 
"And what do you think that farmer said?" 
One little girl raised her hand and said,
"I think he said: “Holy Crap! A talking chicken!”
