Congrats to Kristi. My youngest graduated last year. Where does the time go, I wish I knew.

Hey, I did live on Norman Drive in Bowman Woods for 3 years and then we moved over to the SW side. We lived there two years and then got transferred to Illinois for 2 years and then back to Ohio, have been here 11 years. Small world huh,
