After graduating from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, I joined the US Navy. I was on active duty from 1971 to 1984. After leaving active duty I joined the US Navy Reserves where I completed my 27-year career in the Navy. I retired as a senior commission officer with the rank of Captain (O-6).
While on active duty, I was the "poster child" for the adage "Join the Navy and see the world!" I traveled to 18 countries all over the world from Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East.
When I left active duty in 1984, I was stationed in San Francisco, a place I loved very much and have called home for the last many years.
In 1984, I went to Golden Gate University and earned an MBA degree in Business Administration.
In 1985, a good friend of mine and I bought two laundromats that eventually grew into a commercial laundry that specialized in delivered bio-hardous laundry service. We had medical accounts throughout the Bay Area.
In 2019, my husband Richard and I were married in Vancouver, BC
We purchased a 14 acre horse ranch in Santa Rosa, CA, located about 45 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was located on Sonoma Mountain.
We sold our business in San Francisco and the horse ranch in 2011. We are both retired and now live in our beautiful new home in San Rafael, CA which is about 12 minutes North of the Golden Gate Bridge.
We both are in good health given our age and enjoy going on ocean cruises with friends

Hi Debbi,
Here's wishing you a wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
My nephew and his family have a vacation home in Lake Havasu, Arizona. We go there often to visit them. We always enjoy Arizona in the winter when it is not so warm.
I hope you are doing well.

Hi Maggi,
This is a note to say hello. Our friend Kathy Warn sent me a message that you had asked it I remembered our days at Lincoln Grade School. Yes, I do remember like it was yesterday! So many good times. Dancing the May pole with you was a lot of fun!
If you prefer to text, my telephone number is 415-794-1120.
I hope you are doing well.

Hi Bruce, I wanted to send you this note to say hello! I remember so many good times together while we were at FFHS and the University of Minnesota. Do you remember when you, Daryl Soliah and I went to a drive in movie together and I drank way too much and got very sick in your back seat? It seems like yesterday!
I had my 76th birthday last September and I am doing we'll. I really hope you are doing well too!

Hi Kathy,
Thanks for your Happy Birthday wishes! Time seems to move faster and faster the "younger" I get! LOL
At the beginning of last month, I had a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The procedure went very well and I am now good to go for another decade or two at least!
For my birthday, Richard bought us two first class tickets to Honolulu! We are going to Oahu for 8 days the week before Thanksgiving. I have been to Hawaii several times but never to Oahu. Looking forward to our trip.
Hope you and RC are doing well.
The attached picture is of Richard and me in Cabo San Lucas about 6 years ago.
