My Life Since Graduation
I stayed single until I was 30(I say that because I used tell some of my high school friends that I would not get married until I was 25--like that was really old).  Met my husband, Al, at a snow ski club meeting and we married in 1978.  Retired from TVA after 28 years of service. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to travel to Peru, France, New Zealand, Alaska, Ireland, Canada, etc.  Al and I both are active and have run several marathons.  We both enjoy hiking and the countries we have travelled to have afforded us opportunities to see spectacular scenery as well as meet some wonderful people.  I love retirement and spending time with family and friends.
