Being in trouble with Mr. St. John most of the time

Are you looking forward to the reunion?

Yes - I haven't seen most school friends since 1962. We moved back to the area in 2005. Previously, we lived in Charlotte NC area for 15 years, and before that in Oakville. I worked for a German Company, and travelled the US and Canada, as well as many trips to England and Germany. It is really good to be back!! Except for snow and salted roads, of course.

Do you still have family around Norwich?

My sister Cathi lives in Tillsonburg

Chris is a Personal Trainer, and I sell specially designed construction tools. I have a couple of projects at the Bruce Power restart of Reactor B.
