Wow. Time flies, doesn't it? I graduated from Rice Univ with a BA in Economics. Terry, a U of H Chem Engr, and I married and moved to Lake Jackson, TX. (Small world coincidence: Terry went to high school with Kathy Killibrew's husband, and we saw them often during our few years there.) Terry's career took us from TX to Kansas City, KS, and Midland, MI, then to Providence, RI, moving about every three years. But, for the last 30+ years, we've been living in western MA, in the foothills of the Berkshire Mtns (check out lyrics from James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James") about three miles from Smith College. It's beautiful, historic, rural New England, but - make no mistake - I'm still a Texan at heart!

My professional (?) life has mostly centered around customer service, in one form or another. Among other things, I've been a bartender, travel agent, Tupperware lady, inside sales rep, purchasing agent, part-time trainer/facilitator, real estate manager and a soccer mom. Recently, a tree was planted in my honor when I “retired” after 25 years as an elected school board representative. Now, I handle the bookkeeping and administrative responsibilities for my husband's business consulting company, in which my son and son-in-law are partners, keeping everyone close.

We have three grandchildren — two girls and a boy — and I am usually the first call for babysitting. I love watching them grow and learn and develop individual personalities.

And, of course, until I find myself back living in the Lone Star State, I will be making periodic pilgrimages to San Antonio to visit my family - and to pig out on Mexican food, chicken fried steak and barbeque!

I send warm regards to my classmates! Seniors '69!
