In short, I moved to Chicago in 1967, became a hippie/admin secretary, and
worked at DePaul University. Took some time off from secretarial work and
became a singing waitress on a bet at the downtown Holiday Inn in Chicago.
Met, married and followed my only husband into the Marine Corps. After
spending 6 years in North Carolina, and 3 years in beautiful Spain, we finally
ended up in California - Monterey. He attended the Defense Language Institute
and went on to Hawaii. I stayed here as a single Mom. I have a lovely
daughter now, age 28 and a graduate of UC Santa Barbara in Theatre (no
surprise there) and have a beautiful 4 1/2 year old granddaughter. I'm
divorced, but have been partnered to the Chair of the Theatre Department at
the Monterey Peninsula College for over 5 years - Peter DeBono. Cute
story goes with this: we've known each other since 1989. But in 2002 he
directed me in the Odd Couple. My daughter was Stage Manager for the show.
He started asking my daughter if I was still married or with anyone. By the time the show opened,
we had had our first awkward date (how do you have a date with someone who
you've known for a long time?) and we have been inseparable ever since.
I'm happy, and healthy. Hope to hear from some of you.
