After thirty-three years of teaching high-school English at Jordan High School, I retired this fall.  Whoot!  Whoot!  I loved my career but am ready to begin the next phase of my life.  I do not know what that phase is yet, but I am ready for it.  My husband Mick is still working at the Star Tribune so we are not "footloose" yet, but we are close.  Both of our children are in college so we have far fewer obligations at home than we did a year ago.  Our daughter Julia is majoring in accounting at Texas Tech in Lubbock.  She is in the ROTC program there and also simultaneously serving in the Minnesota National Guard so it nice to have her home once a month.  Our son Matthew is close by at Gustavus Adolphus.  Majoring in communications and political science, he is on a pre-law course.  My sibling and I have been able to retain my parents' farm south of Brainerd as a campground, so the family and I do get to the area occasionally and always enjoy it.  I am looking forward to seeing classmates at the reunion.

My how those 40 years went by in a hurry.  Still living in Brainerd, married to Mark for 34 years, no kids, one cat, still own a business repairing equipment used at radio stations.  We built a home on Gilbert Lake 8 years ago and enjoy lake living.  I still love to scuba dive, trying to get out to the mine pits in Crosby twice a week and a week in the ocean each winter. I thoroughly enjoy underwater photography, granted I get a lot of fuzzy fish tales most of the time.  Mark as of last October is no longer "on the road" for work so we are starting to do some traveling which we are enjoying.  I am still very active in our local Rotary Club and writing some websites as a hobby.  Having lost one parent to Alzheimers and the other to dementia, I have learned to enjoy the moment and to take advantage of every opportunity.  Life is good.

I married Sherry Tompkins in August 1977, we lived in Minnesota for 7 years and due to the economy we moved to Corsicana Texas. I have been in the warehouse business for 28 years.  We have a daughter Hannah that is attending college here in Texas ~ going to be a teacher.  I hope to be able to retire in the future.

Was sitting at my computer again today procrastinating my bio once again.  So, here goes.  Sorry to have missed all of you at the reunion.  But, hope to make it to the next one.  I am now living in International  Falls, MN (icebox of the nation) on the Canadian border.  Jim & I are running a seasonal boat shop repair and storage business, that we established there some years ago.  In the winter, we run a similar repair business in Astor, Florida (on the St. John's River):  if any of you computer savvy nerds want to google it and check it out.  It is at the entrance of Voyagers' National Park.
I have one son, Shon, whom spends his time exploring the entire United States via his thumb.. he only has one state to go to achieve his goal of hitting every state.  He is still single, but, makes me very proud.  Sadly, I lost my daughter unexpectedly four years ago.  But, thanks to her I have four GREAT and beautiful grandkids.  Needless to say, I still enjoy nature and the great outdoors.  I want to know why some of you still look as good as you did back in high school??? NO FAIR!  I was sad to see who some of the deceased were... just shows us once again how life is a blessing and we should enjoy each day of it... As I said, hope to see you at the next reunion... Lucy
