Found it on Mad River School site/

Did you get any tattoos or body piercings since high school?


Your career now. Is what you wanted to do and how did you get into it?

Genealogy Writing. I wanted all the old stories passed on to my children and grandchildren and not forgotten so I started reseaching who I was and where I came from. I am currently working on a book about Licking County, Ohio.

Meeting my husband in choir. He was the new kid along with his brother. I looked over and told Milly Ledum?, I'm going to marry him one day." And that I did.

Not much.

One time. I went to McDonald's to eat lunch, which was a No-No back then. It was in my senior year, a few days before graduation. Such a troubled child.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
