What I Have Been Up To: Lately I have spent alot of time on decorating.  I redecorated my second home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla and recently started redecorating our home in Montgomery.  We are anticipating selling out of our real estate and relocating to some slightly warmer area for our retirement.  In the meantime, I still am active with my appraisal practice and am somehow surviving the latest downturn in the market.  I experienced a fire in one of my rental homes last fall and am the process of the rebuilding of the property.  These things keep me plenty busy, but besides  work my husband and I manage to travel with our new motor home.  We sold our boat that we kept in Florida and decided it was more economical to book charter fishing trips at our leisure.  We were spending more time maintaing our vessel than we were enjoying it!  We are planning more trips this year looking for a location to retire.  Aside from work and fun I spend quite a bit of time in physical thera
 py with Spinal Stenosis and trying to figure out how to keep my diabetes in control.  So I try to diet, exercise, etc. as much as I can.  I have found myself at the Copley Health Plex much more than I ever anticipated.  I am paying for all the years that I never paid attention to health issues.  I eat, sleep and exercise as best that I can just to be able to enjoy today and everyday that I live thereafter!  (Hopefully that will be quite a few).  I have one step son, who is a commercial fisherman and operates a cottage management company with his wife Pam, in Hatteras, NC.  I have two great nephews and one great niece that I spend time with, but my family has grown smaller over the years instead of increasing.  I have spent most of my life in my career and traveling.  My husband is from Switzerland and was a world traveler before he retired.  I was able to travel with him to the Orient, Mexico and Quite a bit of Europe.  After 911 we have not traveled internationally, but hav
 e decided to see some of the best sights in the great US of A! (Most of which we do in our RV).  We have become so spoiled with it, that when we had to stay in a motel last fall we really missed the comforts of our RV.  The only drawback these days is the price of Diesel!  But we still manage!  Last year we took about 10 trips.  Hopefully we will take more this year and when we get to retire maybe less trips, but longer ones!  On weekends that we are not traveling in the summer we are working on the house or in the garden.  We have large flower beds in our terraced year.  They take alot of attention.  We do some of the work, but have hired some of the maintenance out, because it could be a full time job!  One time last year, we left on a trip and all was good with the flower beds.  The weather was mild and we had no weeds.  When we returned, 10 days later, the weeds were overgrowing the flowers!  The weather was rainy and then turned warm.  Great condition for weeds!  So we
 were busy for the next two weeks catching up!  Our other favorite past time is playing Canasta with friends and going to the Casinos.  Seems like they are everywhere!  We also like to barbeque and cook outside when the weather is good.  Nothing like a fun night with good friends.  That is how I spend most of my time.  The rest of the time I am dreaming up something else to do that I haven't tried yet and being discusted with myself that I can't seem to find enough time to do everything that I would like to do!  That is my life in a nutshell as to what I have been up to!   If you want the details......I could write a book!  I look forward to seeing some old friends and catching up on life at the reunion!

Larry and I got married in Aurora in July of 1968.  We moved to Ottumwa, Iowa in 1973 and now live in Downing, Missouri since 1978.  We have two children, Sue Jane who was born in 1970 in Aurora and Tom who was born in Ottumwa, Iowa in 1976.  Sue Jane has two girls and one boy and lives out in the middle of nowhere!  She lives in Scotland County, Missouri, but in order to get to her place you have to go up into Iowa and then back into Missouri.  (there are no roads from here to there.)  The school bus has a great time getting to her house to pick up the kids.  Anyway, Tom lives in Jefferson City, Missouri and is a computer information technologist for the State Teacher's Retirement System.  We live on the farm that Larry was raised on, in what was his grandmother's house and are currently building a new home on the same property.  It's very slow going!  The outside is up and we are doing the inside ourselves.  Fortunately, Larry is very good at wring, plumbing, carpentry, heating, air-conditioning, etc.  I'm hoping to be able to move sometime before next fall!  We did a lot of remodeling on the old 100+ year old house we now live in and I enjoy that type of work.  Larry is also retired and that gives us more time to visit the grandkids in Jefferson City when we want to.  It's a 3 hour trip, but we go quite often.
 

College: Got married in 1968 and moved to Ottumwa, Iowa in 1974.  Moved to Missouri in 1977.  Now live on the family farm where my husband was raised.

What I Have Been Up To: I live in Davenport, Iowa on the Mississippi and it's been fun learning about the river and getting to know the area.  We have lived here since 2001.  My husband Rick and I have been married 17 years and have 3 children between us, a daughter, Elizabeth and twin sons, Michael and Daniel.  Our children are grown and we just became grandparents this year.  It's great!  My husband teaches at St. Ambrose University and I work as a case manager with disabled people.  I enjoy reading, bike riding, cooking, gardening, visiting with friends, and ethnic foods.  I enjoy travel a lot.  Highlights include a trip to China and Japan and Germany with my husband.   I am looking forward to retiring in a couple of years and spending time volunteering in the community and with grandchildren.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone!
