I don't feel this OLD

Services for Real Estate Pros with Pioneer Title Agency

Tawnie & IMy Daughter Tawnie & I at the Eastern Arizona College Drama Reunion

No big deal really, except the fact that my Drama coach Dr Crae Wilson was retiring & he was also my daughter's Drama Teacher/coach/director. How could this happen?!?! I promise it was just yesterday I was on that stage performing in Music Man as the Widow Paroo! Or was I "slightly soiled" one of the lost boys  from Peter Pan?! One thing for sure no matter my age I always feel 19 when I step on that stage. I attended EAC on a Drama Scholarship; my daughter is there on an alumni foundation Scholarship and into Music.

Where and What is Eastern Arizona College well, I will tell you it was originally Gila Girls Academy many, many moons ago & my Grandmother Ruth Tenney Lamoreaux attended there. Tradition runs deep in my family. This campus is small and most students are involved in the fine arts somehow. The Drama & Music department is stellar. Visit the campus by clicking www.eac.edu

So here we are - why do I feel old!!!!

LOOK at my Daughter she grew up!!!

AND she is getting Married Aug 12th 2008!!!!!

Mark is there to catch her who will catch me! :-)

I need medication! :-)

Shelli - you are only as old as you are in your mind. Ok, maybe in the morning, when first getting up the body might be trying to tell you something.

George Eliot said something like  "You are never to old to be what you want to be." You are still a young pup.

Congrats to Tawnie & Mark

Morning Shelli,

Yes, they do grow up and all too fast. Both of my boys are grown men with families of their own. Their children, my grandchildren are the rewards of my old age. Your time will come too and you won't think about having gotten old, but rather age blessed you with a wonderful adult child and heart warming grandchildren.

Shelli - Yes, it's inevitable they grow up, we count more birthdays and our bodies give way!! So..what happened to you? You don't look a day over 22 yrs old and your body is to die for, so did you get some special gene or have you been drinking from the fountain of youth, if so, could you put that on my GPS today??!! You look marvelous and age is just a number, now a daughter getting married that is another thing. Best of luck planning that event, I just know you will shine and it will be a beautiful day. I can't wait to see the results...Congratulations Mark and Tawnie - May you have many blissful years ahead of you! God Bless...

Getting older might not be fun but at least sometimes we have the option to not act our age. "Growing Up" is optional...As far as the medication - Sorry, all out here, it was a long week. On a brighter note Congrats to your daughter, August is right around the corner and it will be a wonderful day for your family...Best of luck always

You are all so kind! Thanks Dione I agree Growing up is indeed optional!

Mike I don't like to share but I will learn really fast I am sure

Gita, thank you and I love the spelling of you name.

Kara isn't it funny how we long to be out of a stage only to dwell and miss it.

happy thoughts to you all for a great weekend!
