I am ready to get together again. Linda Jones-Traw is ready
too. She just called me a few weeks ago and just wants to have a
dinner and some music playing.
My husband and I just have a small business and I
work with him and then do what I can around the house and yard. I
just had a total hip replacement in early June (2007) that I am
still getting over, but our class still has lots of money to get
started with. Hope we can have a 45th sometime in 2008! Sara
Please contact Sara, if you can help with the
plans for a class get-together next year.
