Hi, all of you fellow 50's W.L. friends! Since graduation I've lived in many places, married twice, have 2 children and 4 grandchildren. Pretty ordinary! Oh, not the children or grands, they are extraordinary. Worked at M&F in Portland for 4 years, married in 1961 to Bob. We have 2 children, Greg & Jennifer. We both went to school, he more profitably than I, he graduating with Phd in 1970. We packed our kids into a old car and drove to London, Ontario, Canada. 2 years there. Then drove to Los Angeles where he worked for 2 years (big city insanity). Then to Scottsdale, Az. Baked for 6 years there, often quite nice but I missed dew on spiderwebs. Wrote a novel, Threads. We divorced, I spent some crazy time then moved in late 1980 to Newport, Oregon and have been here ever since. Different jobs, then became State Certified A&D counselor for 17 or so years. Single approx. 20 years. May 1, 1999 married John Port. He's a writer and ex-lawyer. We moved to South Beach 3 years ago (just across the Yaquina Bridge), on a wetland. I garden. Worked 7 years for Curves For Women (exercise joint), just closed so jobless, so I garden more. Write all the time. Published Threads 4 years ago, selling that & writing sequel, among other books, etc. Traveled to England 5 times, a little nuts ... have travelogues. Grandkids all grown, last one to graduate high school from Newport, this June! No greats, ok by me! John good now but a stroke just one year ago has us grateful for every day! Looking forward to seeing you all!
