I went to Wisconsin and quickly met (reg week) the love of my life, Julie, who has put up with me all these years.
Along the way there were adventures mostly good, some not so good but they make great stories. In short, I got to write a music column for ten years, learned to curl and now run the kids curling program at MCC, got a once in a lifetime chance to fire (they called it retiring) not one but both of my parents, and survived moving to the suburbs. I also have been involved with several charitable organizations like BBYO, and working with the Public Service Commission putting hearing impared equipment into the hands of people in need.
I will be glad to catch up with all takers at the reunion. And trade amazing stories with you.
Currently I am blessed with my three buddies. They don't like being called little anymore, but they keep me very busy. Between driving them to far away places for things like art class, wrestling, baseball, football, gymnastics, tae kwon do, cub scouts and of course curling, its amazing these kids still have the energy to push bedtime.
Mr Eckes eyed me up for the poisoning of cherished tropical fish in biology. I proclaimed my innocence at the time, and tried to drop the logic bomb on him that there is no way that I could have because he watched me like a hawk. He wasn't buying, but I was able to clear my name several years later when he showed up at my store and I finally got a chance to convince him is was somebody else who confessed. He asked for a name but I envoked "guy code" and never turned him in.
