retired from Gas company 2016-02-22 10:43:36
From the 40th reunion:
 

Tom Herron mentioned our band "The End" (Tom, Joe Neurauter, and I) -- this is the source of my fondest memories from 40 years ago.

I went right to University of Maryland -- married junior year (too young) and went to work for Washington Gas after graduation ( ISM degree was a new field at the time -- punch cards, mainframes, and endless reams of green/white printouts. )

After two years in the real world, moved to the-middle-of-nowhere Northern California (actually Trinity County, within sight of Mount Shasta), to help run a famliy-owned dinner house/bar/truckers' cafe -- closest town = Weaverville (pop 1,500), 25 miles away.

Stayed in Northern CA for eight years -- bought 20 acres, a '57 Chevy pickup, and a small chain saw, and built a log cabin -- while working at various times for the US Forest Service, a 10 man logging crew, and mining gold from the Trinity River. Saw the movie "Deliverance", picked-up the banjo, and can swear I played bluegrass and light rock in every beer bar within 200 miles (a lot of them, anyway).

Came-to one day, and realized you're not allowed to be Peter Pan forever. Divorced, (a good thing), and moved-back to civilization (Fairfax County VA), returning to Washington Gas -- where I have remained for 28 years. Kicked around a lot of functions -- Corporate Model, Financial Forecasting, Network Engineering, Dispatch Operations, and am currently admin'ing the Gas Management System in Energy Acquisition.

More importantly, remarried in 1983. My wife Ann is the AP Calculus teacher at Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax, and we live in Springfield, VA. We have two daughters -- Meagan, 20, a second-year student at U Va., and Kelly Ann, 16, a junior at PVI HS. So... late start on the family thing, no grandkids in sight, yet.

But retirement is in sight, so we are spending more and more time at a smaller place we have in Bethany Beach, Delaware.

-- And after too many years of inactivity, I have recently jumped back into music, taking guitar lessons seriously for the last couple of years. Now I only play for my own amazement, and am sorry that there are simply not enough years left to ever become much better -- but I do enjoy it.

I did not feel like I knew a lot of people during high school, but I did have a few very good friends. I am really enjoying everyones' bios. -- we turned out to be quite a "slice-of-life" didn't we ?

Piedog Foundation 2016-02-22 13:10:17
Late 2007, I moved to Portland, Oregon, to become a Crazy Dog Lady. I took up racing my Piedog Clarabelle Tailfeathers in flyball, joining the Portland Tail Blazers.  We perform halftime flyball demonstrations a couple times a year for the Portland Trail Blazers (NBA). My Australian Shepherd Fridley Toulouse has earned a Canine Nose Work ELITE title, and can find truffles. Clarabelle and my third dog Pixel the Barbarian also do nose work. In addition, Pixel does Barn Hunt (totally crazy), agility, and flyball, of course. I am pretty much a soccer mom for my three dogs.

I was still 16 when I went off to summer school at Macalester College, St. Paul MN, two weeks before our WJ graduation.  I graduated from Macalester in 1970 with a degree in Fine Arts, and worked for Art Instruction Schools, Inc., in Minneapolis as a clerical flunky for a few years.  I got a job at Peoples Drug Stores as a layout artist, then worked as an Editorial Assistant for NOAA, publishing the "Mariners Weather Log," while preparing for graduate school.  In 1978 completed a Masters in clinical psychology at Mankato State University, Mankato MN.  As a Licensed Psychologist, I spent 25 years working in the mental health field, with children and families.  I was a therapist in community mental health centers in Worthington and South St. Paul, MN, then as a therapist and program director for Wilder Child Guidance Center in Maplewood MN.  When that program was closed, I moved to Colorado and was a program director at a community mental health center in Canon City, CO.  I came back to Minnesota and got a job working with severely mentally ill children and teens, as a mental health case manager, for a suburban/rural county outside Minneapolis.  I left that position in 2001, and went back to school to earn an AA degree in jewelry manufacturing and repair, plus a certificate in gemology.  I've never married, nor had any children.
