Comments:

I/We made 7 cross country moves during my employed years. My husband was a Presbyterian Minister. During that time, I taught swimming, water safety, and small craft operation and safety.

After the age of 40, I became a "Chef" with emphasis on nutrition.

After retirement, I worked at the Crystal Mtn. Ski Area, Wa. state, so I could ski free. In 2003, I really retired to Port Townsend, WA., a Victorian Seaport Village on the Olympic Peninsula.

School Story:

Opening night of Roundup 1958, I was a model. As the Bell opened up and I proceeded down the stairs, the entire back of the costume of netting caught on a nail and unraveled trailing behind me, revealing....you guessed it, the Hyatt derriere to the entire stage crew. Fortunately, Miss Niles thought it was hilarious, wadding all the net yardage up behind me, so I could make the last bow with the other models. WHAT A HOOT!

Hi Gary: glad to hear you are enjoying retirement. I remember those Oklahoma days of winter and longing for that "green" look again.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are green all year long and I have even had to have my lawn mowed twice...already! The Olympic Peninsula is a special place in my heart with Port Townsend having views from anywhere of water, the Cascade Mtn. range and the Olympic Mtn. range. I spend as much time out of doors as possible, even in the winter months. Believe it or not we have less rain here in P.T. than anywhere in Oklahoma.

However, I will always miss the area around Tulsa and the awakening of spring and how my eyes used to "gulp" in the lovely green.

Have a great summer, with blessings for wellness for you and your family.

Our Band of Will Roger Ropers of 1958 is shrinking and now Bette Lee Jones is part of that Heavenly Tribe.

 

Bette Lee and I grew up together in the same church, went to church camp together in our Junior and Senior high school years and in general, caused a lot of fun mayhem.  She and I spent a lot of time together horseback riding, with her being the teacher and me being a very willing student, wanting to learn all I could about equines, etc.  We more than once got into trouble wherever we were, playing practical jokes on each other and other not so appreciative individuals!  She had such a tender heart for all creatures and critters and went way out of her way to give comfort and support to all in the animal and human world.

 

Zany and loving was Bette Lee Jones and I will always love and miss her!  She and I reconnected in 2010 at our 50th class reunion.  She invited me to stay with her for 3 days during that time.  Every night after the activities of those days, we sat in the middle of my bed, giggling and reminiscing past days, etc.  It was a few years after 2010 that I suddenly stopped hearing from her and heard that she was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.  I am all too familiar with that disease, and let her be at peace wherever her brain could find it without me trying to get her to remember what her brain had already forgotten.

 

To Bette Lee, I Salute You with Love and to her caregivers and family.....I understand about the "longest goodbye ever!"

Thank you Roper friends for reaching out to me on my Birthday. As I am now a family of one, hearing from you means a lot. So, I am now 80 years old! Funny, as a teenager, I thought being 80 years was really old. Well, now I know being 80 years old is exactly that!

I'm a little slow on the Birthday Greetings, so I will quote from the Mad Hatter's Tea Party from the Disney Movie, Alice in Wonderland....."A very merry UNBIRTHDAY to you!

I too knew Judy Upton and remember that she had similar ideas as I for zany fun and high jinks!  She made me feel good to be around her.  Blessings to you Judy in your new Spiritual Life and for leaving such happy memories of you for all of us Ropers!

Beverly, know that out here in the Pacific Northwest, you are being thought of with Healing Love that flows in you and through you.

Commendable Frank! Congratulations to you and Peggy!

Dear Fred: none of us should outlive our children. Having your daughter proceed you in this category is unthinkable and there are no words to assuage this event. However, your Roper friends are thinking of you, sending love, strength and understanding via the Divine Spirit. Now, you have to find that "new normal" that it will take for you to survive this event.
As one of our native Americans said: "Great Spirit, you lived first and you are older than all need." Black Elk Let that Spirit envelope you.

Okay, I think I am in the right place to post this comment. If not, please feel free to tell me where I should have posted this.
Here is a quote I stumbled across online this a.m. and somehow never knew this or if I did know it and it was taught to me....I promptly forgot it. I think this bears repeating.
"The Liberty Bell was not rung until the Declaration of Independence returned from the printer on July 8th." There you go, that is my thought for the day of July 8th! Mark it on the calendar! LOL!

Hi Cindy: good to see your posts, connecting you again with our wonderful "tribe" of Ropers!
