Oh my, how do you fit your life in this space? Life has been filled with so many blessings, with its challenges along the way, needless to say. With the loss of 2 husbands, I've learned to rely on myself and great children. My folks and siblings, of course, were always there as well. My children have kept me well grounded and encouraged me to accomplish things throughout my life. It was necessary to work, but found it rewarding and fulfilling.

I graduated from Westminster College, and worked for the U.S. Gov., U.S. Forest Service, as a Paralegal, for Office of General Counsel and Dept. of Justice, retiring in 2008. My activity in the LDS Church has kept my faith strong and has helped me find purpose in much of life. My children are married now, and I have 15 amazing Grandchildren, and 1 Great-Grandson. They bring much joy to my life, as I'm sure so many of my classmates find.

As a Master Gardner, I've been serving as a Garden Guide Missionary at the Salt Lake Temple grounds going on 7 years, and what better mission could there be? I love to garden! I am now the Director of that mission. I enjoy traveling and do so as much as time allows, with family or close friends. I have visited many amazing countries all over the world, and look forward to seeing more!

I'm blessed to have stayed close to many Highland High friends and hold those friendships very close. I've loved helping with the reunions, and this 50th one as well!!

School Story

I was one of the lucky ones....9th grade at Highland High School!! Woot Woot! I did not enjoy Jr. High quite so much, but when I hit Highland, things seemed to really turn around. Both curriculum, teachers, and especially friends, Highland was the PLACE!! Enjoyed Forensics, attending all of the games, and my heart was really into Seminary.

I was a seminary officer my senior year, and we had so much fun planning and implementing activities with the "Brothers" across the street. Another favorite all my years at Highland was the choral groups I participated in, Girls' Choir, Jr. Choir, Madrigals, and A'Cappella. Mr. C was the bomb!

Of course the dances at Highland were the best ever... the decorations and atmosphere was always the best. Always had so much fun at them. And who could forget the Pep Assemblies?? What a riot, we used to laugh so hard at classmates making fools of themselves, me among them!! Anyhow...Great memories Rams... I've been very sad seeing who has past on already, and remember what each of those individuals meant to me. But it's been great remembering all the GOOD! Love to all of you out there!! Hail Highland!!

Well....I'm at the emergency room !
It was not a good day. I decided to go take a ride on a horse yesterday evening to relax. It turned out to be a freakin mistake! I got on the horse and started out slowly, but then we went a little faster; before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. The horse made a sudden jerk and just blew up. Bucking and kicking , and I couldn't hold on. I fell off, but my foot got caught in the stirrup. The horse kept bucking and running, and was dragging me and wouldn't stop. Thank goodness the manager of the grocery store came out and unplugged the machine. But then he had the nerve to take the rest of my quarters so I wouldn't attempt to drive the Batmobile, and told me to stay away from the handicap carts. Retirement is rough!xoxo

Dr. Clayton, you'll like this one. A guy at my exercise classes heard me "complaining" about how much one of kitties sheds. He told several of us that were listening in that he had read that there was a way to take care of it by docking her tail a certain place, and it makes it so she she won't shed any more! I said "you're kidding! Well where do you know where to dock it to?" He answered with a big smile, "Oh, that's easy, right up behind her neck!" Arghhhhh!

Just a little fun stuff today:

I realized I still have so many unanswered questions: I never found out who let the dogs out... the way to get to Sesame Street... why Dora doesn't just use Google Maps... Who is 'Trader Joe'... why we don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"... why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed... why "abbreviated" is such a long word... why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons... why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections... and, why do you have to "put your two cents in" but it's only a "penny for your thoughts" where's that extra penny going to... why do The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune... why did you just try to sing those two previous songs... and just what is Victoria's secret... Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways... and do you really think I am this witty... I actually stole this from a friend who stole it from a friend of her brother's girlfriend's Uncle's cousin's, baby mamma's Doctor... Now it is your turn to steal it from me... lol Enjoy the rest of your day!

Just posted another classmates passing that Dean Fletcher sent to me, Ron Johnson that I just posted. Thank you Dean! Even though there was no obit, he shared some great information. Dave Robinson also heard that John Gardner has passed away, sadly, but we haven't seen an obit on him. If anyone hears anything about that, please let me know. Thank you dear Ram friends!! xoxo
