This is a great idea. Everyone seems to be doing really well and its good to hear that. I have a tech school degree in nursing, a bachelors degree in science, and a Masters degree in social work. I used to do child abuse and neglect investigations for Milwaukee County and the City of Milwaukee. Now I do adoptions, which has a much better ending, most of the time.
I have two grown children. My daughter is in Philadelphia with a great job in testing software for ADP, and my son is an undercover store detective and loss prevention officer at none other than Walmart. I live in a suburb of Milwaukee and have a place on a camp ground in Wild Rose, on Kusel Lake (near Wautoma and Waupaca). I have a fishing boat up there which is great, because I love the water and love to fish.
My husband died of a heart attack in 1996. I am now engaged and supposed to get married the summer of 2006, but I may delay it 5 more years (lol). Hope to see everyone on July 3rd.
