Once divorced and twice widowed, life has given me 2 1/2 wonderful husbands and never a dull moment.
       I have two fantastic sons; Peter is in Afghanistan working for a private company specializing in aircraft electronics, and Jonathan is an Air Traffic Controller in Atlanta. Five gifted, adorable, brilliant (of course) grandkids round out my family.
       I graduated from U of Wisconsin...have taught riding, worked as a Real Estate broker in Hamilton Ma.,and a Veterinary Assistant in No. Hampton N.H. Now my time is divided between volunteer work and traveling.
       I have an incredible horse who is a part of my main volunteer work with Cincinnati Riding for the Handicapped three days a week. I have two "literacy"students---one a Chinese fellow in the "English as a Second Language" program, and the other a cerebral palsy gal who has progressed from a 1st grade reading level to the 5th grade.. I do Meals on Wheels once a week, and that pretty much fills my days.

       And then there is my passion for travel. I have seen a huge part of the world but a few adventures stand out..........two safaris to different parts of Africa, tiger tracking from the back of an elephant in India, China and Tibet, bareboating on the canals of France and the Shannon River in Ireland. I have two trips lined up.....Russia and the Volga River in September and Patagonia in January. Gotta see the world before I crumble or it does!!!!!!!!!
       Sorry that I will miss the reunion, but I have really enjoyed hearing all about everyone. What exciting and fulfilling lives we all seem to have led. Aren't we fortunate?
