Favorite memory from STA (one of many): Getting out of class, right after lunch to dump the milk from the bottles before putting them in the carrier racks. Usually did it with a friend, and we got to visit.  Sounds yucky, but it was fun.  Find someone who remembers THAT.

Spare time: Retired in 2000, we travel, and go to grandkids’ games, birthdays, etc.  I flight instruct and fly recreationally as well as write.

Advice: Listen, respect and accept people for who they are.  Be curious, and challenge the rules when they don’t seem to make sense.

Other: I’m interested in seeing where others in my class ended up but I haven’t been able to contact them.  I simply want to catch up with anyone who might remember me and see what’s up with them.  Just kick around some memories to see where life took them.
