JIM JONES 2003-07-04
Life has been pretty darned good for me since "63".  After graduating, I "played around" at a couple of colleges before college decided it wasn't ready for me . . . so I went into the Air Force for 4 years, got married, had a son and then "I" decided it was time to get on track and got my degree in Business/Economics.  I have four wonderful kids, but I strategically spaced them out so I wouldn't have too many little ones at once:  Philip (1970), Angela (1980), Jessica (1990), and Jennifer (1993).  Philip has his Masters degree and currently works for a group of cardiovascular surgeons associated with Research Hospital, and has two lively sons (my grandsons).   Angela could have graduated by now, but decided to go the extra mile and is in Pharmacy School in Kansas City.  And Jessica & Jennifer are excelling in grade school.  I have truly been blessed.  Oh, yeah, my wife Diane works at the bank part-time, but is mainly a stay-at-home mom.  I don't know how she does it!!!!!!!

I have only been back to a reunion once (the 25th), so many of you probably won't remember me . . . but I'm sure you'll remember my yellow '57Chevy convertible!

Have fun at the reunion . . . and drop me an e-mail if you get a chance.  Would be fun to "catch up".
