Comments:

Let me tell you, life is full of twists and turns to get where you are supposed to be. My second marriage recently ended, mostly due to geography and biology. He (who was she when we married) transitioned and we no longer were compatible on that regard. He also decided that my dream of us moving to New Mexico for retirement was not going to happen and he was never going move from Iowa. Soooo...
I got the RV and truck in settlement, sold the truck and moved the RV to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Happy!
After HS, I started college, but was interrupted by marriage and moved from Illinois to Rhode Island to North Carolina to Texas. Got divorced. No kids by choice. Worked in insurance, then I worked for Fort Worth Public Library. Also worked as a professional temp and for the Tandy Corporation. Moved for a brief period to Taos, New Mexico, where I fell in love with a state. Back to Texas and substitute teaching and working in another library. Met Sue Wolf and moved to Iowa, working for the Ames Public Library, then the Parks Library at Iowa State University where I worked until retirement.
I live in my cozy RV, my version of tiny, intentional living, with my Yorkie, Jazz. I do paint by number and embroidery. I sing and act and enjoy every day. I'm wild enough to dye my hair pink, purple, blue, or aqua. I don't live near any relatives (both brothers are in Seattle), and I'm fine with that.
Live life fully, no fear!!

School Story:

Besides being a full-fledged member of the Motley Crew, my favorite memories belong to my theater experiences, starting with "Kismet" and ending as Ado Annie in "Oklahoma, with Chicago dinner theater work through Mr. Lowry. Loved building the "De-Feat 'Em" Library Club float for home coming our junior year.

Blackburn College 1970-1972, music and theater
Texas Wesleyan College 1983-1986, BA in English
University of Texas at Austin, 1988-1991, MA in English

Steve was bigger than life. Great laugh, great hugs. A big old teddy bear. He was my steady beau then a good friend for many years, even marrying one of my best friends, Margie Emerson. I will miss the laughter.

Paulette, Margie Emerson, and I were unbreakable in junior high school. I remembering strolling through the mall after school, laughing and giggling, reading each other's stories we had written, figuring out the perfect names for future boyfriends. I wish we had been closer in high school.
