May 20, 1973

Forty years ago today I graduated from Vermont College. This photo was taken on campus in Montpelier the day of graduation; May 20, 1973.  Mr. Goodneedle had proposed the night before (notice that brand new engagement ring on my left hand!). I could only imagine then what the future would hold. Today I can look back and easily be overwhelmed with gratitude for all the joy, love and happiness that has filled these last four decades... so glad that he asked and even happier that I said "yes"! 


Life is Good!

Happy Anniversary to both of you. Dr. Seuss was right, Oh, the places you'll go.

Hi Debbie,

I see College Hall in the background!!!
I went up to Homecoming for my 40th last fall. I saw a lot of old friends. It was great.
I love your blog, read it all the time. Tried to find you on fb but I don't know your married name.

Thanks for sharing this glimpse of yourself at a turning point in your life. I'm glad Mr. G. proposed and so happy for both of you that the answer was YES. And I'm especially happy our paths crossed (even if only through cyberspace for now).
