retired financial officer/retired USAF officer Married 2
After spending our senior year together, Judy Bon and I took different paths upon graduation.  Judy went to Hennepin Co General for her nursing degree.  I went to the U of M for my degree in Physics.  As time passed we got back together and were married in 1968 after both our graduations.

I had planned on continuing in physics, but my draft board had other ideas.  So I signed up for ROTC in grad school and got my MBA.  Upon graduation we moved to Cincinnati for a short time with Procter & Gamble.  Then into the USAF for 5 years spent in northern Michigan and Dayton Ohio.  Upon leaving active duty I decided to stay in the reserves, which I did for the next 20 years ending in retirement.  Coming back to Minneapolis I spent 5 years with the Minneapolis Fed and then the next 30 years in finance with Rosemount Inc and other local manufacturers.  For the last 14 years I have been a director with a large nonprofit that aids homeless vets.

Judy went to work at general hospital while I was in grad school.  She worked off and on as the boys were growing, her last job as parish nurse in a Bloomington congregation.

Upon our retirement we became dedicated snow birds, buying a second home (our "cabin") near Birmingham, Alabama.  Our son lives there with 2 of our grandchildren.    Our other son remains in Minnesota with our other two grandchilden (and our only granddaughter).  We split our time pretty evenly between the two.

Both of us have had some health issues, but are doing well considering.  Our time is split between grandkids, church, friends, and traveling.

Thanks, Washburn, for study hall when Ballintine and Bon were forced to sit next to each other!

I have been divorced twice and married three times.  I am currently married to Winnie and we have been married for 17 years.  I have two children born 1974 and 1978 and one grandson born 2013.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the 50th reunion.

retired speechh-language pathologkst Divorced 2
I still live in small town Iowa with a large lot and 2 children.  After 23 years of marriage I finally got a divorce and have lived blisfully for 15 with only my grand cat.  My son graduated in 2000 and went to Fordham University in the Bronx , New York.  He graduated the same day as my daughter from High School. She had preupped in the Marines in her junior year and was sent to Defense Language Institute in Montery, California.  (Now there's a place to visit!)  After that she went to a special schooling in Texas and became some sort of a Russian spy.  As she says, "If I tell you I have to kill you".  After 5 years in the Marines she quit and joined the Air Force reserves and still works for them.  A year ago she decided to return to school and is currently at Fordam and will be a senior this year.  My son is currently in Taiwan getting his master instructorship in teaching scuba diving.  He has his own company in finacial marketing design and had enough air miles to travel around the world - so why not?  He took me to Austrailia and Tazmania as a retirement present, another great place to visit.  I've learned that I love to get away from this Iowa winter weather and have gone to South Beach and Panama the last two years and am hoping to find something in Puerto Rico this winter; as long as it's warm, near the water and I don't have to go far to get food, I'm happy.  When I was young and wanted to be older, this was certainly not what I wanted to be.  (Irony is not the opposite of wrinkly - I have them both!) I'm fat and sassy and enjoying life as it comes to me.  I was a Speech-Language Pathologist for 39 years and that was about 4 years too long. I like not having people yell at me or doing all the paper work the government keeps creating.  As the saying goes, if you can , you teach.  If you can't, you write laws about it.  I currently work part-time at Sam's Club in Council Bluffs; yes, I'm one of those little old ladies who hand out samples at Sam's.  Here's hoping that life's blessings have come your way and you have the peace that you've earned.
