got married when I turned 50 - to a great, great grandfather of the
founder of one of the most famous restaurants in New Orleans - Antoines.
Mimi is an accounting professor, but that description does not do her
justice. She's the reason I moved to Louisiana -- that and New Orleans.
We had an apartment last year in the French Quarter
and will rent one again over Christmas vacation this year. I was in
Hanover the day they tore down Nathan Smith. I walked up to the building
and looked up through my office window and saw it had a very bright
blue ceiling with odd patches of white. When I walked around to the
side I discovered why - only the front facade was still standing. By
the next day that too was gone. That was the best office I ever had
- and the only one where the windows open. Speaking of failed Window's,
I am among the last Mac users in the B-School. I have about five of
them now I guess, and am using a projector as my office screen (and
the new CinemaDisplay at home).

Thanks so much for creating the new page
with the photos! Is there a link to it from the main CIS page? There
probably is and I just didn't find it.
This is fun!

CIS web page. CIS-83 doesn't seem that long ago but, yikes!, it's been
twenty years. I still see some of the old gang. I'm having dinner with
Anne Hathaway tonight, saw Kathy Litch and Kent Morton about a year
ago, have run into Steve Garland once or twice at MIT, and got a Christmas
card from Jon Groisser. Hope you're doing well.
All the best,

for me (Kate),
Im back in San Antonio and working in the Fiscal Affairs Office at my
other alma mater, Trinity University, as a sort of liaison between the
accounting-types here and the programmers at the computer center. I suppose
the project Im most proud of is my house I bought and restored a Victorian
home in San Antonios King William Historic district about 10 years ago
and really love it and have been active in my neighborhood association.
I also enjoy quilting, traveling (especially to England), and my 3 cats
and 1 Doberman (and yes, the cats HATE the Doberman, although she really
just wants to play with them).
Holidays and do keep in touch!

hard to believe that our 20th reunion is right around the corner (this
coming June). The time has flown by. I've lost touch with just about
everyone from our class. I still occassionaly cross paths with Dick
Schellens, he still lives in the area. Yes, I'm still here
too. Still living in the same place, still working at the same place.
Career wise not much has chnaged, I'm
now the Clinical IT Director at the Medical Center. The Medical Center
moved to a new location 11 years ago (only a few miles from the old
location). What an amazing transformation. Lot's of interesting projects,
too much work, too little time.
My daughter, has grown up, attended Dartmouth
as an undergrad, then Thayer for a graduate engineering degree, she
just moved to Portland, Oregon to start her career (green building design,
sustainable buildings). Portland's way too far from New Hampshire. Oh
Great catching up with you. It would
be fun to see the old crew in June. Think about it.
