I'm an intense, hyperactive woman with an imagination in overdrive who loves her Husby, her two Wonder Wieners, and her emerging career as an author and photographer.

Monday, May 22


Today is the first anniversary of my father's death. He was born in Long Island, NY on December 22, 1930. He graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School, got a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from Union College, Schenectady, NY. He immediately became a Union College professor. Later, at the University of Michigan, he earned dual Masters Degrees in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering and Instrumentation Engineering. He served as an instructor at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs for two 4-year terms. As an Air Force Command Pilot, he flew tours in Viet Nam and China, and out of Mildenhall, England. He was awarded three air medals and two commendation medals. He was an instructor of the academy ski club and scuba diving club. He flew in the Civil Air Patrol, was a soccer referee and instructor for our childhood games. He taught me how to ski, sail a boat, change a tire, and so much more. The quote he asked for at his service: "Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."
