50th Reunion

54 David Frank.jpg Married to Margie last six months of Senior year, still married to same gal 50 years later....lived in attic apartment on Amity---not many amenities, had to wash the dishes in the bathtub, as we didn't have a sink..

Spent entire career in the shoe business in St. Louis (it was than "first in shoes, first in booze, last in the American league")---still had time to have three children and now seven grandchildren.

Took early retirement at 55, so we could travel, eight worldwide 54 David Frank 2.jpg cruises, play golf, bridge, and bought a Florida condo on Longboat Key, where we have been beach bums for the last 16 years.

Both Margie and I have had some health problems this last year, but we hope and pray that our hospital days are behind us, and are looking forward to another cruise this fall, and to being at our 50th.
