Yes! Attending Reunion

Married my high school sweetheart in 1972. Worked as an RN for 30 years. Returned to graduate school for an MSW and became a LCSW in private practice in Richmond for many years.3 years ago ,decided to take the plunge and retired. I have 2 wonderful grandchildren ,that keep me very busy babysitting . Have a baby girl due any day now. My schedule is taken up with painting, knitting, cooking, swimming, and visiting old friends for lunch.

School Story:

Born September 26, 1949 . Moved from Arlington, VA in the 4 th grade. Graduated from Crestwood Elementary the first graduating class for that school. 8th grade was a difficult transition from elementary school, in a big new school with all the upper class men .Luckily I had my big sister Lane to help me out. Lost a very close friend in the 9th grade Dickie Dietch in a motorcycle accident . Saw "Psycho" with Pat McInteer and was so frightened, I grabbed his thigh and dug my nails in causing him to yell out in the theater. I think I double-dated with Jimmy Brazell that night. I was so sorry to hear of Pat's death...very sad . High school was a lot of fun, pledging was not. Loved my CACT sisters(ask me what it stood for, I'll tell you now!) Had a lot of friends and laughs , but alas, my memory has aged too much to recall them. Thank God for the name tags at the Reunions! Tried out and got into the Drama Club but had too much stage anxiety to ever be in a play until I hit my 60's! Hated Algebra I with Mr Longwood because Stan Deaner "frogged" my arm every day( still carry the dent in my arm).Too many funny dates with Allen Huffman and Al Smith. Kept me in tears, laughing so much at their humor. Graduated from Johnston-Willis School of nursing and married KEN the next day. Worked 30 years as a nurse in almost every capacity. Went to graduate school and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice many years. Retired at 65 and spend my time with grandchildren, painting, drawing and knitting, and meeting up with old friends. Life is good. Married 46 years to my high school sweetheart.
