What were your favorite places in Culver City: Spent many Sunday afternoons sitting on the CCHS grassy inner-track  area writing short stories that I hoped would get me into college. 

Interests: Helping type-A husband adjust to retirement after decades as a surgeon...planning engagement parties and weddings with stepchildren...spending time with treasured girlfriends...running with rescued weimaraner to keep adored 
pooch and me fit...following fashion trends with stepdaughters...laptopping...and
reading novels, Vanity Fair, and The Economist magazines(What times we're in!), etc.

Additional Comments: Keeping on track during difficult times was my main goal in high school.Childhood years had been very challenging and grades tenth through twelth had continued very complicatedly.  So many of my CCHS teachers and adminstrators were insightful, tender and encouraging (not to mention, stirring/demanding-----Mr. Johnson and Dr. Burke, for example).  Also, my peers contributed unspoken thoughtfulness in many ways.  I look back with appreciation for all.  I was a lucky little high-schooler.
