I was so surprised to see so much info about so many people. I had no idea. Now I’m a bit late but will add my two cents.
I married in 1972 to a great guy I met at Western Airlines in Los Angeles. We moved to Seattle and had two wonderful girls. Our lives revolved around our girls and 4H. Their dad and I would take our vacations to coincide with the King County Fair and all the 4H activities. It was a great way to raise kids.
But, alas the marriage didn’t last. Western Airlines became Delta Airlines and in 1993 closed the Seattle office. The oldest girl headed off to college and mom and youngest daughter headed for Salt Lake City to follow the paycheck. I’d thought I’d gone to the ends of the earth. Little did I know what a beautiful place this is. I live 13 miles from Snowbird and Alta, 5 minutes from wonderful hiking canyons. I have turned into a National Park junkie. Between international travel with Delta and living here… I’ve had a wonderful life.
Florinda Islas Bailey is my tether to Orange County. Louann (old habits die hard) and I are very different people now, but we can pick up our silliness and camaraderie in just a few minutes of being together. I’m also very close to my brother who lives in Orange. Between visiting both of them I have been able to keep up with the changes of our childhood stomping ground… and what changes !!!
And I see Jefferson has been mentioned. I’m anxious to see Jane, Mary, and Wanda.. and everyone else. I used to play football with the boys at Willard… Tommy McNeal, Doug Nalle, Dave Ault..and ?? I think we were 8 or 9. I was a ruff and tumble girl !
I retired from Delta in 2005 but got restless. I went to work at an in-house travel department for locum tenens. I’m now down to 3 days a week and with a big house… am kept busy. When not working I’m playing pickleball, or in the mountains.
Well, time to lose 10 pounds in the next 4 days !..haha ..Can’t wait to see everyone.
