Mothers don't let your children grow up to be sailor, Y Because it is a hard life. Sometimes lonely I married my Sailor in Feb of 71, No one said it would work 36 years later its working. I had two beautiful daughters when i met Al he had two beautiful daughters so between us we had a big family. We had our son Allan J Thome January 7,1972 beautiful child of ours he was born with muscular dystrophy and at about age 6 went into his wheelchair. Sad for us and Happy for Allan. He was loved and protected by his big sisters. Tari is daughter of Jim Pangelinan and is now 42 my oh my she is a real estate agent in The Dells Wisconsin. Tari is mother to Imari, Rose and Jerry. Tracey is married and mom of two chandler Nicole and Jackson Daniel Hahn, We left Vallejo after Al resigned Navy we went to Iowa for not quite a year when Al decided to rejoin the Navy. Especially after seeing Viet Nam over 27 years from a fireman to master cheif, warrant officer and then the officer community he retired from the navy after 27 years, We lived all over this country it was truly a great adventure. It faced its difficulties mostly with the disability issues, The girls were in 31 schools upon graduation. It was hard on them to make fiends and continually say good bye. but they are good girls Tracey is a Welder and Lead at McNeilus This company makes garbage truck beds. I myself became a bowler ,I rose to a 195 average when i quit, I worked in bowling alleys everywhere we lived, I even managed a bowling center for the Navy Recreation serv, in Point Loma Submarine base, California, My highest game was a 290 oh so close to the elusive 300. I did finally manage a 721 for high series. of career. It was fun, I served on the San Diego Womens Bowling association and Wrote articles of which i did win one award from the WIBC for Best Human interest story. I felt a lot of pride in that. To be recognized for writing by ones peers is major. I wrote for two years for Bowling Beat news Paper in San Diego. I guess you would say i am a bowler, I bowled for 32 years. My thumb has cyst on it and i can not bowl any more because of it. I was also a great bartender, I started in Vallejo at the Enlisted mens club, from there no matter where i went i got a good job, I worked at the Ramada Inn in Georgia, Howard Johnson in Hampton Virginia, the Officers Clubs, and the Virgina International Airport. that was awesome i served Elizabeth Taylor , Jack Daniels double on the rocks. Burt Reynolds to name a few It was a fun life for awhile. I have had various people pleasing jobs and 3 years ago decided to turn my gift shop into a clothing consignment shop. A Way of the Future. Nice Brand Clothing and Never Bust the pocketbook.
My husband and I build a beautiful Log home, the fire has been burning straight since about mid November. It pays our yearly heating cost are about $300 a year. it is wonderful warmth. I have my own little Work shop it is knee high in snow now but when i get the wood burning stove stoked i keep warm while i am quilting on my long arm quilt frame. If not quilting i am Painting or just being Nana to the grandkids.
Life in Iowa has been good to us. My only regrets are we did not build this home in northern California. Now i look forward to February visit to my sister Patricia Williams Mrs Joe Williams of Georgia street Vallejo. It is a peaceful place to live compared to the hustle in Vallejo.
