Comments:

Fresh out of high school, in September 1969, I began working with Carolina Power & Light Co. in Raleigh, NC. This was great for small town girl like me. Worked there for 28 years. In 1997, they did away with my position and I could have stayed making 26% less in my salary or I could leave which offered the greatest opportunity ever.....and I left.....they bridged my retirement to 35 years working, so I began drawing my retirement at age 53!

From there I've worked at the Farmers Market (loved the people and by the way, I'm not shy anymore) for about a year and then a small company, Corrvantis, also in Raleigh.

I began working at UMM on Glenwood Ave in Raleigh on April 2, 2001 which was a wonderful experience. I finally retired for good in 2009....40 years of traveling to Raleigh to work...was enough.

Randy and I own Carolina High Hot Air Balloon Company. He loves to fly & I love to chase that balloon. I chase him with more women than any other woman in Johnston Co. 🤣 We are enjoying the sport so much, going to balloon festivals in VA, NC, SC, NJ, PA, ME, and Canada.

I love my Church and Church family, Blackmans Grove Baptist Church.

I keep my granddaughters 2-3 days a week. I really didn't know I could love someone so much.

God has blessed me so many times.

School Story:

Boy! there are so many of these I can recall:
........Love the basketball games with Donaphine (Dona), Kay, Dare, Janet Joseph, Nancy, Rose and many more.
........Won't forget my crush on Pete Morgan. Some remember in the 8th grade, going to Fort Macon and watching a movie, "It's a mad, mad, mad world". Think that was the name.
.........Jack giving me the nickname Choc and others that I won't mention.
..........I think it was Lonnie, Harry, & maybe Scott who put the water in the trash can with paper towels on top and poor Mr. Thompson wet his leg pushing down the paper towels.
.........So scared of Mr Judson Stevens
.........The time I went to the office to tell Mr. Warren I needed to go home, I was sick, but not sick enough that I couldn't play in the game that night and surprisingly he let me go home & let me play :-) that night.
.........Oh, yeah, what I received at Class Night, bird seed to feed my little birds with.....that didn't happen and I'm so glad it didn't.

Well, I could go on and on but will quit right now. Can't wait to see everyone and reminisce about ole times.
