Do you have any memories of your high school years? Tell us!

I remember the day I dropped Mr. Irvine's Marketing class....he freaked on me....many years later he apologized for his over-reaction. I remember Clarence O'Gorman, the Principal at the time, directing traffic at the main intersection of the hallway...often wondered what he would say today if he saw the behaviour of the young people and lack of respect some have for their peers.

Do you still have family around Norwich?

Yes, my parents and brother, Chris and sister, Cathy and their families still live there. My late sister, Carrie, has 2 children David 13 & Ashley 8 who live in Otterville with their father Rob Walter.

How often do you get back to Norwich?

Often, but not as often as I should!

What do you do now?

I took a lay-off December 31/10 as my employer wanted to reduce my hours to 2 days/wk.
I also have a small business selling Fifth Avenue Collection (high end fashion jewellery). It is my fun job, meeting lots of lovely people and selling lots of beautiful jewellery. It's great being my own boss, someday I hope to do it full time!

How did you get into that line of work?

Unfortunately, I didn't graduate with the rest of my class as I began my career in Insurance with Otter Mutual Insurance in the summer of 1972. I took 5 years off from the business to be home with my children. I went back to work in May of 1981 and worked until June 2006 when my job moved to London and I decided to retire. However, in 2008 I went back to work part-time for a local insurance agent & in January 2009 I started back working full-time for the same agent.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Sky Dive...too old now! I'd love to travel to Ireland.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Spoil my grandchildren...whoever said "if I'd known how much fun I'd have with grandchildren, I would have had them first"?
