My husband and I are both retired and are spending a lot of our time finishing out the full basement. We recently sold our acreage, barn, and pond so we only have the upkeep of the house we had built in 1978 and the surrounding yard. We've had a front porch added and deck in the back which greatly changes the appearance of our place. We have 2 grandchildren who are 4 and 9 yrs. old and live in Ok. We recently bought a camper and parked it near Claremore for the purpose of family gatherings nearer our grandchildren.
Our church is an important part of our everyday lives and do enjoy the company of those friends. My other 4 siblings live in close proximity so we keep in close touch.
I would welcome contact with classmates via this messg. center, phone call, or visit to our home.

School Story:

Vocal music was my extra activity during my school years and I continued on with it through my college years. During my last 2 years of college in LeMars, Ia., I was a member of the top 64 member travelling chorale and sang at the World's Fair in Montreal Canada in 1968. We travelled by private buses for 2 weeks to and from Montreal taking in some of the local tourist attractions including Niagara Falls and the exhibits of the Fair.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Donnie. I remember you only from when your folks lived across the street from us in the 1400 block on 10th street. Lost track of you when you all moved but now, through this web site, I've learned a lot about you and your family and am glad to share our Christianity.

Happy Birthday Barbara! I miss your sister and her laughter. The lady Everette married is a nice person also. I hope everything is going good for you. We've moved to Claremore, Ok. and living with my sister, Gail. Dale is still walking on his own but I help him with most everything else. We go for walks on a hiking trail here. We're enjoying "spring" when we have it. Take care.
