i just retired at the end of may, 2009. i have had two husbands for a total of 5 years of married life during my adulthood. the rest was as a single woman who chose to enjoy the status and independence. i have one son, Chip, who is 45, and one granddaughter, Courtney, who is 21, and one grandson-in-law, Jerry, 32, and a g..g..g...g....g (having trouble uttering the word in relation to myself) great grandchild due in February, 2010.
my careers are varied for varying lengths of time. the most predominant one was in nonprofit (both public and private) management for 25 years. a "long and winding road" for a girl who majored in Journalism at UF.

OMG, I can't believe it. It's funny what a small world it is. DIdn't even know that you went tp PBHS. Oh funny. Most of the Jones Klan are still kicking...Lost Gary and Foster. Life takes strange twists. Good to hear from you.
Linda, just based on that wonderful comment about my being on Jeopardy!, we are friends for life. Yeah, it was interesting.....I'll tell you all about it sometime. The question most people ask is about Alex Trebec. Answer: He's nice but doesn't hang out with the contestants. Other answer: He wears a lot of makeup onstage. Other answer: No, I don't know what happened to his mustache, but suspect it's been reincarnated as a North Carolina wooly worm. Uh-oh, was I supposed to phrase that in the form of a question??
It was nice to hear from you. Congratulations on your having a great grandchild next year. I have seven grandchildren and hope to have lots of greats. Each one is special.
Have lived in the area all of my life and have been married for 43 years. I admire the fact that you could make it on your own.
Hope to see you at the class reunion.
