Comments:

I married my high school sweetheart who graduated from Glacier a year ahead of me. We celebrated our 52nd Wedding Anniversary in January of this year!

We have always lived in the Burien/Des Moines area. In 1975 we moved to Boulevard Park into the house my husband grew up in. Our house is just down the street from the where the famous Palermo Christmas light display was located. It drew people from all over Seattle. It is said that airline passengers would ask about the big light display they saw just before landing, and would search out the display. Sadly they have moved, but my husband tries to make up for it every year with lots of displays and lights in our yard!

Our family enjoyed many sailing vacations in the San Juan and Gulf Islands. Bill and I both raced competitively in Puget Sound and Canada (Swiftsure) for about 12 years before we got burned out.

I retired from The Boeing Company in December, 2008 after 42 years. My husband is retired too and we are both really enjoying the freedom that retirement brings. There is lots of time for hobbies, grandkids and great grandkids!

School Story:

It was November 22, 1963. I was sitting in Mr Emery's Shorthand Class when we got the news that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Everyone was in disbelief...so shocked and sad. Mr Emery too...he was standing at the head of the class with tears in his eyes. I'll never forget that image of him on that day.

Glad to hear you didn't have to have surgery now...I had a cortisone shot last week for a lower back problem.. I've just had a couple of PT sessions so far. The radiologist said that it might take a couple injections to find the "right" spot to get some relief (you can have up to 3 in a year in any one spot). Keep the faith, those PT folks did wonders when I had my knees replaced! Wishing you well....Barb

Hi Joanne - What a coincidence we both married '63 Glacier grads! Bill was one of the band geeks. Mr Emery was the BEST! He was a big part of my being able to get my job at Boeing. I started in the steno pool and worked my way up. I spent my last 18 years at Boeing working on a military defense contract and worked for five different Boeing Vice Presidents over that time. I loved my job, but the stress finally got to me. So glad I retired when I did. I wish you were attending the reunion! It was so good to hear from you! Hugs, Barb

Thanks for those kind words Nancy! Not getting around very well these days, I've had both knees replaced...now I've got bone spurs and lots of arthritis! I hate this getting old stuff! Love the picture of you and your daughter...beautiful bride and mom! Sounds like you are going to the reunion...can you believe I've been to two of my husband's reunions (from Glacier) and none of my own...
