Favorite Quotes: "Growing Up Happens in a Heartbeat. One Day You're In Diapers, the next day you're gone...but the memories of childhood stay with you for the long haul. I remember a place, a town, a house...like a lot of houses. A yard like a lot of other yards, on a street like a lot of other streets. And the thing is, after all these YEARS, I still look back...with WONDER."
--from the final episode of "The Wonder Years"
HAVE A GREAT SUMMER EVERYBODY!!!
About Me: I am PROUD to have never smoked, never drank (except for a toast once at a wedding), and to have never done any drugs. **At all costs, I do my best to avoid any and all situations where alcohol and drugs are present.**
I am a "one on one" type of person--I am not a party person and am not interested in being part of any large groups--except for bands (sorry if that offends anyone), but I love to talk to individuals.
***Just for the record, I've actually been a member since October 28, '05--for some reason the dates reset (?) at the beginning of February!***
This Past Spring marked my 10th Anniversary season as a Saxophone player/band member! I can't believe its been that long--it seems like only yesterday...! It has been a great run...THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!
My current "main photo" was taken the evening of Saturday, June 3, 2006 at Seneca Rocks, WV. (12)
The COURSES listed below are on my *tentative* schedule for FALL 2006. Some changes are pending...

Summer Break Plansedit
Activity: Family Vacation
Location: Southern West Virginia: Mid-August 2006
Description: I am finally getting a much needed breather/stress reliever from life in Fairmont (maybe I'll get some of that tension off of my shoulders--literally!)...just call this my post-Novelis/pre-back to FSU trip. Rather than go to one of the piping hot, overly-populated beachfronts that the East Coast has to offer, my family and I plan to explore the beautiful New River Gorge region (which we have only seen in passing through to other places!) of our home state, including a week-long stay at beautiful (and semi-secluded) Twin Falls Resort State Park, and day trips (hopefully) to Babcock, Hawk's Nest, the State Fair, the Theatre West Virginia plays at Grandview ("Honey in the Rock", "Hatfields and McCoys", etc.) and many other natural and historical landmarks the region has to offer!
