Yes! Attending Reunion

Jerry and I will have been married for 50 years June 1st. We are retired with rental in Seadrift.We have 12 grandchildren. The oldest graduating from A&M in May and the youngest will be 6 in July.They keep us going. The first years of our married life was spent with NCR. Jerry was trained on computers and I was a stay at home mom. We lived in Hartford, CN, Dayton OH, Denver CO, and all over TX. When the kids started to school we bought a shrimpboat and moved to Seadrift. We have been in the seafood business most of our life. In 1976 we bought land in Arkansas and lived there until 1981. In Ark. we had an insulation business. It was interstate and some in St Croix. The crunch of the 80's got us and we moved back home to TX and back to the seafood business that we knew.We had bought a beach house in Jamica Beach Galveston just in time for 82 storm "Alicia" to tear it up. We lived there for a least 10 years. Through the years we keep some land in Seadrift. So in 93 we moved back to retire here. Our now project is six little houses of the 50's that was moved in from Victoria. We are putting them back together for weekly rental for fishing cabins. This is a real challenge at our age but we have always been real active so we don't set still long. We love to camp with the kids, help with the grandkids school activities and go to Lake Charles LA to the casinos. We are also helping to put together a centennial celebration for Seadrift 1912-2012. Back in the late 60's, when we came to Seadrift it was much too small of a town for me so we organize the first Chamber of Commerce and that summer we organized the first Shrimpfest. It still is a small little town but I appreciate it much more now. I never got to know the kids of 61 in Bryan but reading over the profiles was intersting. The ones I thought would excel seemed to have. My Mother still lives in Bryan and I go back to see her. I have been back to the Ball High school renion many times in Galveston. In Bryan I was a geisha girl in the senior play and I was at a senior dance that I won the 20's dance. Other than that ,The Texan and the Skyway, I think it was called,and local dances are my memories of Bryan,well maybe a few more.I thought about going...maybe the 60th. This is it ,the 50 th. ann. We are here.

School Story:

I didn't drive so I would go with the other kids. A little girl named Diane would pick me up to go for a ride. When she would get to the drive inn she would get so nervous she would go around three times before she could stop.
