Profile Updated: June 5, 2009
Residing In: Woodway, WA USA
Spouse/Partner: Larry Kagele
Occupation: Realtor
Children: I didn't marry until I was 43 years old. My husband Larry had children from a previous marriage. His More…daughter married shortly after we got married and now has two darling little girls, Lillian who was born 11/26/05 and Lauren who was born 12/05/07. I guess you could say I am sort of lucky . . . I got to become a grandma (Nanna) and spoil these little ones and send them home when I am tired.

I got married in 2004 and we had a house built in Woodway, WA (for those who do not know where Woodway is . . . it is a tiny area that sits between Richmond Beach and Edmonds, WA). We got married here in our house 45 days after we moved in. What in the world was I thinking . . . planning a wedding of 135 guests, having a house built not to mention decorating it, and being overwhelmed with my job. It's amazing what you can get done when you are under such pressure!

My husband and I travel to Aruba every November for three weeks. I love the sun and heat just as much as I did 30+ years ago. Since the housing crisis, I haven't been too terribly busy with work. I guess you could say that I am practicing for retirement.

Over the past two years, I have been volunteering for Children's Home Society cooking for 7 little boys who have been removed from their homes because they have either been mentally, sexually and/or physically abused. Unfortunately this volunteer job will be coming to an end. They are shutting down two out of three cottages because of not enough funding.

I guess I better start golfing more often if I am going to play in the reunion tournament. The last tournament I played in was in March 2008. It was for a charity. I ended up with a DNF because from the time we tee'd off at 7:45 a.m. it snowed. I finally walked off on the 16th hole during the whiteout! With wet golf gloves and no hat, I was absolutely frozen. I love to golf, but only in blue and warm skies.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone in August.

School Story:

There were so many fun, crazy memories. One that comes to mind is being crazy enough at 10 below zero one New Year's Eve, Joreen Peterson, Kelly O'Neal, Karen Easily and Lori Carlevato and myself all going out to an orchard party. (And please excuse me if I forgot someone or didn't get the right people mentioned here. Going back 30 years can somewhat be a bit difficult in getting the exact story straight). In any event, they had smudge pots going, but ohhh my gosh it was cold. If you had to go to the bathroom, it made it a bit difficult unzipping or zipping up your pants because our fingers would freeze just as quickly as we took off our mittens.

Here is my wonderful husband of 5 years with our new addition Harley who is a Havanese. My husband bought Harley for me on valentine's day since work is so slow. He figured maybe I would have some time to raise a new baby puppy. Wow . . . that did require a lot of work, but he is way too fun.
