Today's Featured Biography
Hello, precious classmates! After our Jefferson HS "Happy Days" years, I received my BS in Education, minor in Sociology, from Texas Tech, then taught elementary school, married Gere Gaige from Midland, TX, an AF jet instructor pilot.
We raised our two wonderful sons in west Houston, and as they grew up, I taught elementary school and adult education classes, was a residential Realtor, freelance writer, recruiter and artisan/entrepreneur. I also volunteered at Crisis Hotline, the Children's Museum, Red Cross, Watercolor Art Society-Houston, Houston Blues Society, various civic associations, and learned to be a Master Gardener. At age 50, I bought a 1963 candy-apple red Slingerland cocktail drum set, and have fun playing it.
I discovered my deep love of travel, and enjoyed Australia, France, Russia, Italy, Hawaii, Mexico and Costa Rica, with hopes to see more, such as Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Brazil, Machu Picchu in Peru, and more of our good ol' USA.
Today I currently live in NW Houston with my Schnauzer (but my heart remains in San Antonio, always) and have fun times with friends and family, especially including my four granddaughters, with a grandson due this October. Currently, I am going back to my freelance writing, all kinds. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also enjoy gardening, watercolor painting, zydeco, C&W and other dancing, biking, live music, cooking, reading, writing, walks, tennis, movies, karaoke and comedy clubs, museums, festivals, theater arts, and life-long learning and sharing.
By the way, I really appreciate all the hard work of our Reunion Committee through the years, and also all of the folks who took the time and effort to come to any of our reunions, as well as the patient spouses who come not knowing anyone. Those of you who are choosing not to come are missing out on renewing old friendships, and catching up, and y'all would be surprised how many of you "absentee graduates" we speak of and miss seeing you! For example, Genie Martinez, David Reyes, Bill Shanks, Albert Motz, Suzie Fry, Stewart Marsh, just to name a few...
Besides checking off my bucket list, my secret wish is to find a fellow kindred spirit with a good sense of humor & positive outlook who loves to laugh and enjoy life!
"Life is a festival only to the wise..."
As long as I am laughing each day, meeting fascinating folks, and discovering new things, I'm happy!
"It's the song ye sing, and the smile ye wear, that's a-makin' the sunshine everywhere!" old Irish saying from my Grandma
