Residing In murphy, NC USA

Occupation almost retired psychiatrst and almost full time pickleball player
Children stepdtr, age 33
Yes! Attending Reunion

Trying to do as little work as possible. Constant challenge which I usually was able to meet and now work about 9 hrs. a month which I still think is too much. I have 1 stepdtr. who is a singer/songwriter/performer ( Lived very urban initially in New Orleans, then Chicago until 2001. I moved to the mountains of southwest north carolina with my husband. He sadly died of ALS in 2014 but he will forever part of the mountains and the national forest that sits next door. In 2016, I donated a kidney, partly in his memory as a non-directed donation and start of a small chain ( I became a Guinness world record holder April 21, 2017-the largest number of living organ donors all gathered in 1 spot which was at "the bean" in Chicago. Being part of this incredible group of people from all over the country and 2 other countries including India was so humbling and emotionally moving. I remain involved in raising awareness about living organ donation. Besides music (impossible to not be involved with a super talented stepdtr.), pickleball addiction has taken over my life. Many years ago, my superior internet skills allowed me to track down my best friend from high school -it only took me about 5 years to do so. We remain in close touch in spite of living many states away.

School Story

Uh, no.

Hi- My sister, Karen, keeps in touch with your sister, Joan, about twice a year so I know EVERYTHING going on. Still have fond memories (and scars) of waterskiing, making up different tricks to try-not always successfully and playing cards. Glad to see you are snow skiing. I kayak, paddleboard, hike and am an absolute pickleball addict. Have fun at the reunion.

I will let you take me to disney....esp. since you have the inside track. I am a disney virgin, tho and this is a very tough decision-one with high moral and emotional consequences. But no financial ones-ok, we are on!

my best friend from "way back then" and little did I know that when I would find you again several years ago, you would be literally one who "held the keys to the Magic Kingdom". I promise I will let you take me to Disney.
