Happy Birthday Kathy, I hope you had a great day.
I often think of all the wonderful friends in high school and wonder where they are today. After seven years in Madison going to school and working while my ex-husband finished law school, we then settled in Racine, WI. My whole life I have always wanted to move away to somehwere else, but it just isn't in the picture anymore. I remarried after seven years to a wonderful person. I raised my two sons and his daughter. My boys are now 36 and 31. The oldest is a federal agent with the state department and presently travels with secretary of state, John Kerry. My youngest is a police officer with the Village of Mt. Pleasant here in Racine. Both boys are single and no grandchildren. I retired after 37 years of teaching from Racine Unified. Enjoying retirement and always searching for fun things to do.
