"They're coming to take me away ("Ha Ha") Believe it or not, I don't look to much different than I did when we graduated. I do have blonde hair now because I have lived oversea's for so long. I lived in Hawaii for four years then I moved on to Japan for another fours years. When I graduated I joined the Army Reserves like a fool came back to Idaho and joined the active Navy where I have been for 17 years. I became a Master Welder in the Navy. I weld on nuclear Reactors, I am also a Fire Marshal and Fire Chief. I love to live my life on the dangerous side. Yes I am still a tad bit crazy. Been to Africa and fooled around with some wild lions. Been Surfing with Great Whites. Now I've slowed down a bit and work in ST. Robert Missouri as a Navy Recruiter. I got married along the way and have four children two boys and two girls who keep mew on my toes. When I put down on my senior picture "their coming to take me away HA HA" I was meaning the U.S. Government. I met Bill Clinton I haven't met George W. yet. But when I do retire I plan on working for the federal government in one way or form. Shell oil company has been chasing me for years trying to hire me. So far it's been up to 125 dollars an hour. But I keep turning it down. They want me for the oil rig fires because I put a couple of fires out in Kuwait along with them. I came up with a idea that was safer than what they were already doing. But I want to work in D.C. I havn't applied yet because I have 6 years left in the Navy. So tell me what you have been up to. Email: ssurdam@usa.net

Sue Ann Ward [Shelman]

"Tall people give short people someone to look up to" I am the busy working mom of 3 kids. Seth is 14 (do you remember 8th grade?)  Marcus is 11, Kira is 7.  They are all active in sports, piano and whatever else I can get them to do so they don't sit in front of the TV all day.  I still work at the hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  I also fly in the helicopter to outlying small hospitals, Blackfoot, Soda, etc. and transport premature and sick babies once or twice a month.  Sometimes exciting, sometimes very scary!!!!!  My husband Tod works at the John Deere Store in Blackfoot. I didn't think I would still be living near Aberdeen and that my kids would go to Aberdeen, but you know what; I love it! Lives in: Pingree, Idaho
