currently M-F care giver for 5 month old Nora, daughter of Jill, lives local. HARD work. Looking to move from home of 45 years to a single level, smaller home. So is every other baby boomer.

School Story:

I loved high school. Had good friends and fun times. Only good memories.

Which Junior High School did you attend?

Warren

Are you on Classmates.com?

No

Where were you when President Kennedy was shot? Describe the scene.

Home sick from school; watching tv. In shock, like the rest of the world.

If you won a large Lottery prize, what would you do with the money?

I'd help my kids and give the rest to a worthy cause. Money is only good for the good it does.

What memories do you have of grade school or Jr. High?

I clearly remember in junior high the day of the Cuban missle crisis. We were all scared to death.

Books or Movies that had a profound impact on your life

too many books to list

The worst moment of your life:

not to be shared with strangers

The BEST moment of your life:

as above

Accomplishments you are most proud of:

Three wonderful, enlightened daughters.

Tell us all about your family; your parents, grandparents, siblings, children, g-children, etc. Who influenced you, who are you most like, which child is most like you, what have your siblings and children accomplished? Etc.

Grandchildren were the most enlightening to me - my youngest daughter stated so well when the first was born: "How can you instantly love someone you don't know?". My kids are an attorney, physical therapist and teacher. All "giving" professions. Can you tell how proud I am to be their mom? My grandchildren are so smart they scare me. Even the 5 month old revs up when the Sesame Street music comes on! Life is good.

OK - the biggie: What have you been doing for the last FIFTY years?

Living - thank god.

AND.... what have you planned for the NEXT 50...?

More of the same.

What would you like to be most remembered for?

terrible question

Who would you most like to see at this reunion?

the "missing" people whom I loved.

Current Pet Peeve?

words - like cabinetry, not cabinets. Price point, not price. Can you tell I'm looking for a new house?

When you were in High School, what did you hope to accomplish in your life? Did you meet your goal?

I wanted to be a big-time journalist. Did not meet that goal, but wouldn't change anything in my life.

What is your biggest regret abut your high school years?

None

What is you biggest regret since high school?

I probably could have exerted myself more and done more for the
"world", than the volunteer work I did do. Can you ever do enough?

Essay Question: "If I knew then what I know now...."

I would probably not take life so seriously and laugh more.

Did you ever skip school?

Once

Where have you lived? States, countries, continents... did you move much?

Mass. of course, and NY. Moved to NY when I married, and within NY with job transfers. Been in same house 44 years.

Can you (still!) drive a stick shift? What kind of car do you have now? What was your favorite car that you owned? Did you ever get your dream car? Where did you get your license? (How many time did you have to take the test ?)

Yes, I can still drive my son in laws Saab stick shift. My favorite car was a beat up Gremlin. I drive a dull Honda Accord. I'm not really into cars. I got my license in Watertown - took the test once!

Favorite TV show or movie from your childhood, favorite tv or move since then? Why?

I don't remember much before American Bandstand.

Favorite food? Dessert? Do you cook?

My favorite food is liver - yes, really. Anything chocolate is fine. I do cook and really like trying new things.

Married 45 years. Met spouse on a blind date.

be with my family
