TBT my Cousin Carol, my sister Sue, and me . Taken in front of Kekabeka Falls, in Ontario, CA. Notice our sweatshirts? They say USA Necking team.... I am shocked my parents let us wear them... lol.. We got lots of attention when we were up in Canada.... all I can say is that the sweatshirts were noticed. Lol 😆 😳 We used to camp in Grand Marais, MN and then go up into Canada for the day. I am thinking we were there in the summer and the film was developed a few months later. Circa “October 1963”

I look forward to seeing you at the 50th. I'm sorry you missed the 45th.

Looks like I won't be coming... It will be just too expensive for me to get out there for our 50th reunion. I was really hoping to attend but just won't be able to swing it. I am sad

I was born in Minneapolis, MN on April 21, 1948. We moved to California in December 24, 1970, we arrived on Christmas Eve. I am a one on one aide for an autistic boy and work for the Morgan Hill Unified School District. I have worked at Live Oak High School, Sobrato, Nordstrom and Britton Middle School.
I grew up in Minneapolis, went to school there and graduated from North High School in 1966. My Husband Ralph is also From Minnesota. St. Paul to be exact. We have 2 grown children, Tracy born in 1967, and Dustin born in 1970 and is now with the Lord. We also have 4 Beautiful Grandchildren. If you don't believe me go look at our family photo section of this web site!
I have worked for The Morgan Hill Unified School District for several years. 9 years in the late 70's and early 80's and again in the late 90's and am presently still employed with them. I love what I do and wouldn't trade it for anything! I was chosen by the class of 2001 to read names at their graduation.... I believe I'm the first aide to ever get that honor.
