What did you always want to do that you haven’t done yet?

Travel to the Fiji islands.

If you could rewrite the saying under your senior picture, what would it be?

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely
in an attractive and well preserved body,
But rather to skid in sideways,
chocolate in one hand,
wine in the other,
body thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and screaming
"WOO HOO what a ride!"

School Story:

Too many to tell, plus my kids may read this and they think I was an angel! and some I just can't remember.........


Can't wait to see you all at the reunion- I can't believe it's been 30 years!!! OMG
I went back to school and became a Radiographer and then on to become the director of the MRI center in Waterbury.
Bart and I had 3 children, Steve, Joe and Michelle.
In 1997 we divorced and I bought a house and stayed in Wallingford. My boys went to Lyman Hall and Michelle went to Sheehan- a bit of rivalry in the house!
I remarried in 2006 to a great! guy- Chuck who has 2 children. So although the house was quite full for a short time, it quickly quieted. And now just us. All out and about and grown up! boy did it go by fast!! ! And now 5 grandchildren who are just the BEST. We moved to Chester CT in 2007 and still trying to get used to the 'country'. It's a one stop light town and the closest grocery store is miles away, not quite Wallingford but I love it! Talk to you all soon!

You don't sound lazy to me, very busy guy - with lots going on. So exciting to see our kids grow up and develop! When they are young you can only imagine what they will be like and then when it's's an overwhelming feeling of proud. Sounds like you did a great job raising them.
Let's hope I am not on the road when those driving changes take place - yikes!
Thanks for updating, enjoy the weekend!
