Comments

I still have some pretty clear memories of a lot of you! My favorite teacher was Mrs. Alter, who taught Spanish with a full-on Georgia accent and led the vocal ensemble the year I sang in it. Miss Pete was another favorite. A highlight of her class was getting beaned with a basketball during PE, passing out, then when they carried me out, they crushed my finger between the stretcher and doorway.

School Story

Being a Navy brat, it was unusual for me to stay in one spot for long, but I went to Hilltop schools from 4th grade through 10th. At 16, I was suddenly uprooted from my "bitchen" California world and plopped down in rural Maryland, in an all-girl's private school. I met my husband at college in Virginia, married at 20, and 52 years and counting later we are happily retired in Williamsburg. We have a daughter who is a horse breeder and trainer and a son who is an Arabic translator and dad to our two grandsons. I've discovered a new passion in my sunset years...painting! I was stunned to discover that one does not need to be able to draw well to paint well. After two years of lessons, I'm producing art at last.

I've always said I want to stick around only as long as I'm having fun. It turns out that, as life goes on, I'm redefining FUN. Hosting a small group Bible study, my byline on a magazine piece I'm proud of, painting with friends who make me laugh, a husband who still sees me as his bride, a grandson's hug...yeah. Life is good!
