School Story

I have taken lots of art classes since I have retired; tried a lot of different things. A true dilletante. (That may not be spelled correctly).

Who from the past would you like to meet up with?

Cleve Waterman , Martha McQuitty, Briann who I regularly see, and a lot of other people.

What are you up to now?

I am an ESL teacher, an artist on hiatus, an art student, a traveler, have been to all the continents except for Australia. My next trip is to Japan. I wrote a child's book about my old dog called My Dog Poops. I am hoping to get it published. I am waiting on my illustrator.

I plan to bring copies of my magnum opus, My Dog Poops For Love of an Old Dog, to the reunion.

My English classes. I finished my book, up until then writing my book was fulfilling.

Deborah, your world travels and wide range of interests sound fascinating. As you likely know, I've been in sporadic contact with Leo--one of my favorite people in the world. I saw him at the class of '65 reunion a couple of years ago.
