Yes! Attending Reunion

That's a long story that I'll make short. I didn't graduate from VHS. I finished my junior year in Baker and graduated from South Eugene HS in Eugene, OR. I worked at various jobs for a few years and then spent a couple years studying art and foreign languages at UO. From there I transferred to OSU and majored in Wildlife and Range and eventually got my degree in Wildlife from UI. I worked for the Forest Service as a wildlife biologist for 30 years and retired at the end of 2012. I spent a lot of time in Santa Fe, NM in the past couple years studying craniosacral therapy at New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts and am now a practitioner. I'm also trying to start an environmental consulting business. I do a lot of hiking and a lot of swimming this time of year. Huckleberries have my attention at the moment :)

School Story:

This wasn't at all funny at the time, but it is funny now looking back on it. I got kicked out of VHS in 1970, my junior year, for a short skirt. Remember how they scoped the girls out in the lunch line and if you were suspect, your name got on the list for measuring that day, and you got called out of 6th period for the reckoning? But my skirt wasn't too short- my grandmother had to make all my clothes to meet the skirt length policy because you couldn't buy anything that long in the mini skirt era. But Miss S. measured and flunked me on skirt length and my parents weren't willing to play the games to reinstate me... so, off I went to Baker and then to Eugene for my senior year where I graduated. I heard at some point after I left, the boys got to grow their hair long and the girls got to wear short skirts and all hell broke loose. Sounds like I missed some fun!
