One thing that no one knows about me is:

Now the hard one. Tell us what we need to know…50 years in the space below:
GRADUATED IN 64. I HAVE 4 CHILDREN 3 GIRLS AND 1 BOY. ALSO HAVE 7 GRANDCHILDREN AND ANOTHER ONE DUE NEXT MONTH. I THOUGHT I WAS BUSY HAVING A FAMILY. NOW IT'S UP TO MY CHILDREN. I LIVE BETWEEN FLORIDA AND LONG ISLAND. LOVED HAVING MY CHILDREN THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THEY GREW UP BEFORE I KNEW IT. BUT I LOVE BEING A GRANDMOTHER. THE OLDEST GRANDCHILD IS 15 IT SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY I WAS THAT AGE. I ONLY WISH...BUT LIFE HAS BEEN VERY GOOD TO ME. HOPE TO HEAR FROM SOME OF MY FELLOW CLASSMATES.
WELL HERE IT IS TWO YEARS LATER AND THE EIGHTH GRANDCHILD IS 1 AND THE OLDEST IS 17 AND DRIVING. I AM LIVING IN FLORIDA PERMANENTLY NOW OTHER THAN VISITING LONG ISLAND TO SEE MY CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN...I STILL GO TO HICKSVILLE BECAUSE MY BROTHER STILL LIVES IN THE SAME HOUSE WE GREW UP IN WITH HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER... LIFE IS GOOD… WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM OTHER CLASSMATES.
