Comments:

Proud Mom of two boys, two grandchildren. My oldest son is the father of 2 children, Izaah and Aeris. My youngest son is back from the Army,served in Afghanistan - was injured by a suicide car bomber and received a Purple Heart. I had been working in the Mortgage industry for well over 20 years (which I loved), held an Officer position until the market tanked. Needless to say, the Corporation closed it's doors and I found myself on the unemployment line for 9 months. I was able to get my foot in the door at the IRS which is where I have now been at for almost 2 years.

School Story:

Where does one begin with this?? There are so many memories - JC Superstar, someone accidently hanging himself on the noose, the fights between the boys on the blacktop, pounding erasers, swiping "The Bell" used to call everyone in from lunch/recess - uh-oh, did anyone know I did that?? I still have it by the way. Skipping off to the burger joint on Sandy blvd.
Dance lessons, always wanting to be on Cheryl Johnson's team for kickball. She had a wicked kick. The haunted house at Fr. Zenners, slumber parties at Lisa Millers. Sr. Cecilia and her knack for using the pointer when angry. Margaret Evers and her 4 inch tennis shoes - which by the way inspired me to wear 4 inch shoes at our graduation - I am sure I humiliated my parents. Crossing guard at Dairy Queen - always looked forward to getting a cherry dip cone to pass the time. Volleyball and how talented both Liz Stickel and Margaret Davis were. Randy trying to impress the girls by jumping over the nets on the blacktop only to catch his shoe in it and displaying an awkward albeit painful landing. Roaming the streets on Halloween night putting smoke bombs in the mailboxes.

Event: Watching "Wait until Dark"

Price of admission: 25 cents
Knowing you are seconds away from ruining the movie for your sister by leaning forward and whispering: "Watch Carol, this is where the guy jumps out and grabs her": PRICELESS
