PROFILE (as written in mid-2011) by Ed:
"The black and white photo (above, top) is my wife Lydia (Dixie) and me shortly after we were married in 1969. The color photo insert is from a wedding we went to in July 2011 -- we have just a little bit lighter hair and heavier bodies. The colored photo (just above) is my family as of now (in mid-2011) -- my wife, two daughters, my son-in-law and my granddaughter. My older daughter and her husband now live in Freehold, NJ, and are having twin girls in November. We are still speechless about that. My younger daughter lives with us in North Carolina.
I am retired and living near the beach and enjoying it. After high school I worked as a vending mechanic, and in 1988 opened my own business installing vacuum systems in Freehold, NJ. I sold that business, got tired of Jersey snow, and moved to North Carolina where we have a beach cottage, but live on the mainland ---- hurricanes have revamped our plans to live on the beach year round, but shoveling sand is easier than shoveling snow any day.
I've been happily married for 42 years and am looking forward to seeing the "oldies but goodies" at our 50-year reunion in a few weeks. Thanks for going to all the trouble of putting this reunion together. -- Ed "
