I've spent the last 48+ years building, developing and brokering real estate in addition to raising 4 great kids, who have now produced 8 grandchildren! Lots of ups and downs during that time which is something most would say I imagine, that's life, right? Let's hope we are all in good enough shape to have a 60th, 70th, and maybe even an 80th? Time will tell....
Being a Hooligan 2019-05-26 21:36:58I love keeping myself busy.
I am forever a student of Academics and Life.
- "Once you stop learning, you start dying" - Einstein -
An Obsessive reader. I love the Arts, and participate all the time, hands on. Reading, Painting and knitting is thought therapy.
I'm a genealogy junkie [Genealogist]. I was 12 when I started this obsession. I started before it was trendy, and before most things became computerized. So, essentially, I am a revolutionist SNOOP!
I founded Ancestry World Connects Project in 1990, in an attempt to connect as many people as possible.
I miss Minnesota, until I see the weather reports.
Then I only miss the Art Institute, the Museums, Pracna, Improper Fraction, Theatre in the Round, and Friday nights after class [ UofM Campus] at Bullwinkles with Muckers!
Hope you WBLSH70 loons are doing great!!
I'd love to hear what you've waste your life doing. lmbo!!
Thank's to all those on the Class of 70 committee's. Great job!
Retired / PT Consultant Married 4 1. I didn't graduate from WBHS - I moved to Eau Claire in the middle of our senior year (ugh!). 2. I lived in LA for 35 years till my retirement. 3. I have 3 sons living and working in Syracuse, and a married daughter living in Long Beach Ca. 2 kids are married, no grandchildren. 4. I was VP of Ops for a global experience marketing company where I oversaw operations for large scale events such as Olympics, and World Expos. 5. Spent 4 years in China, 2 years in Tokyo, and a awful lot of time in Europe and western Asia. 6. Lived in Boston for 2 years (I didn't care for it.) 7. Retired in 2014 but I will consult on special events with the old company when they need a senior problem solver. 8. Moved to the North Woods of Wisconsin in 2015 and we built our lake home in the middle of nowhere. Its great to be in nature instead of the insanity of LA. 9. After a full career requiring way to much time on planes and in airports, we enjoy road trips pulling our little tear drop camper and checking into hotels around the country. 10. I met up with Steve Phillips about a year ago. It is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time!! Love you brother - and the great work you are doing for our fury friends. 2019-03-29 19:48:59

Companion Animal Advocate Divorced 3 Companion Animal Advocate (retired from commercial aviation and IT careers) 2019-03-26 10:36:04
I've worked most of my adult life in commercial aviation and HSIA/IT development and deployment.
Married and divorced, twice.
Raised my first two children as a single parent for a good deal of their lives.
Adopted my third child (who's about to graduate law school) as an abandoned infant in Asuncion, Paraguay.
Traveled extensively, residing in South America for a time...
Lifelong devotee (and activist) of companion animal rights and advocacy; maintain a household of multiple rescued abuse survivors!
Wish I 'd been better at keeping in touch with old friends and classmates...
To quote Morgan Freeman (from Shawshank Redemption):
"There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret... I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid... I want to talk to him.
I want to try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are.
But I can't. That kid's long gone, and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that..."
Somedays, I dream of what could have been.
Others, I realize what I'd have lost, were I given the chance for a "do-over".
In the balance of life, all one can do is "keep on, keepin' on'!
I look forward to rekindling old friendships...
