What song most reminds you of your school days?

Which reunions have you attended?
Which did you enjoy most? 


Fondest memories of your days at Central:
The blizzard in Chemistry.  The gas leak in Physics.  The IFS in Spanish.  The leisure times around the rotunda.  The freedom to be.  The truck.  The road trips.  The fellowship.

My life since graduation:  
I am now living and working in Woodstock GA as a Physical Therapist's Assistant at a nursing home and rehab center.  I am here as a result of admitting a life dominating issue in my life that has meant the end of 43 years of marriage.  I am still trying to be, but now on my own.  God is my Refuge and Truth!

May 10, 2008
Just to update you on where I am.

As of June 8, 2008, I will be living in Ball Ground, GA with my new wife, Tricia.  I am working as a traveling Physical Therapist's Assistant.  Until May 30, 2008 I am in Greeneville, TN doing home health.  Beginning June 16, I will be in Warm Springs, GA at the Roosevelt Rehab Center for 13 weeks.

May 14, 2010 update:
Well, I married Tricia Sawtelle on Saturday morning, 06/07/08 at 9:10 am.
We are living in Ball Ground, GA. 
I just completed my last travel assignment at Lafayette Nursing and rehab Center in Fayetteville, GA.  I will begin what may be a two year assignment in Woodstock, GA at North Georgia Spinal Associates.
Health wise I am doing well after my August 2008 removal of my cancerous prostate.  I still have 41 more years with my heart. (according to Dr Morrison)

Update 1/26/2012
I worked just one year in Woodstock before returning to traveling. I have done a tour in Macon, GA - Middle Georgia Medical Center; then Warner Robins, GA - WR Rehab and Nursing Home; now headed to Alma, GA - Bacon County Hospital and Nursing Home. Tricia is still selling real estate (1 or 2 houses a year) and tupperware. This gives her the freedom to travel with me at least part time. We are hoping to have her with me 10 of 21 days for the next 13 weeks. We plan to spend some time in East Tennessee in October so we can attend all the events for the 50th reunion.
