Where have you been? and what
have you been doing? - - - family, school, career, pastimes, good
Straight out of high school,
I went into full time employment - various office jobs.
In 1970, I was married and am stilled married to the same man!
His job as a Phd physicist took us to Dayton, Ohio. We
have lived here ever since. We have been in our current home for 41
years. We have two children, son and daughter now 47 and 42.
I mostly stayed home and raised the children and worked in the
Kettering School system as a classroom aide, librarian, in the
office, etc. Many volunteer jobs kept me busy too.
Currently, I volunteer for the performing arts venues in
Dayton and for the Kettering City government. Dogs have always
been a big part of our lives too. We currently share our lives
with our Labradoodle - bet dog ever!
I have been to all 50 states -
guess which one was the last one, 4 Canadian provinces, 8 foreign
countries. We just visited our 44th out of 63 National Parks.
We have also watched the Cinci Reds play in many national
league parks around, including in Montreal.
Wow! We have had so many
Hiking in western Ireland, night snorkeling with Manta Rays in
Hawaii, Riding in Zodiaks in Hudson Bay with hundreds of beluga
whales, being chased by nasty monkeys in Costa Rica, on a boat in the
Bay of Fundy with Humpback Whales playing with our boat,
floating over the Kalahari in a hot air balloon while on safari
in Botswana, having a pilot fly over Victoria Falls just for us
Husband is a musician in various groups and we have been on tour in
the British Isles and in Canada, too.
You’ve come a long way in 55
years. Where are you going in the next five years?
Hopefully in our retirement we
will continue to be healthy enough to travel. At our ages, you
never know what is going to happen. I will be extremely happy
to get out of Covid. Our planned trip to Namibia has been
cancelled twice. Keeping fingers crossed for 2022.
