Comments:

My scholastic/professional career after BHS was (and is) in Minnesota. I earned a BA in German lit from the University of Minnesota, then an MD from the same, then my family medicine residency through a U of M affiliate hospital. I joined my current practice after residency and have been there since - 20 years. I have been job sharing since 1999.

The first week of college I met Charles and we have been together since, married for 27 years. One might note, if one did the math, that I had one child in medical school, one in residency and one in practice! My oldest son in living in Washington DC, he just graduated from Ball State with a degree in Landscape Architecture -- and is working waiting tables. If you ever go to an Outback in Silver Springs, MD (DC suburb) tip well. Kevin will be a junior at the University of Wisconsin Madison. He has no declared major but will do something with math. His goal in high school was to be in a Big Ten marching band and he succeeded. Brian will matriculate at the University of Minnesota this fall.

FYI: Ball State is a public university in Indianna, named for the Ball family who gave the land and money to start the school -- the Ball family being of canning jar fame. You may have heard of Ball State because David Letterman went there and will mention it at times. Also Jim Davis (Garfield) went there and still lives there.

I enjoy walking and biking, and have a great situation wherein I am an "active commuter", biking to the office. My husband also bikes to work in downtown St. Paul.

School Story:

This seems like the place to record some school memories. Mine center on Orchestra, All-State and Pit Orchestra standing out. I also have memories of church activies. I was not at BHS for most of our Junior year as I was an exchange student in Germany; and, although that year certainly was memorable, my time at BHS was shorter than most.

But the real school story is what we have done since graduation. Kurt Vonnegut said "True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country." As I read what people have written here and what people write on Facebook I notice that we are leaders of our communities, churches, schools, athletics, music, employment, families.... This does not cause terror, of course, just wonder. How did that happen?
