I’m trying something new. Instead of waiting around for people to write in to share their news with the rest of our Class of 1968, I’m contacting all the people who have made comments on the blog. One of those people I heard back from was Gail Hanson Carman, who with her husband, Ron, live in Orlando, near Disney World in Florida. They moved there 16 years ago when they decided their dollars would go further than in California.
Gail says her husband, Ron, “spent many years in project management, most of which were theme park-based, so Disney and Universal has given him plenty of projects over his career.” He’s now retired, but Gail is working part-time as a convention assistant in the second largest convention center in the nation.
Their son, Brad, is 31 years old, happily married and gainfully employed in Chicago, “making us proud.” He spent a few years pursuing music. He and several other young musicians were in a band called Fairweather Friend for a few years in early 2000’s, when alternate rock was the style
Here’s an invitation from Gail: “If any of you are ever in Florida, we would gladly show you the sites of Orlando, lots of theme parks, and lots to do here. Just know that in summer you will spend lots of time swimming or seeking A/C!”
