Hi everyone!!!

I really can't express how overwhelmed I am to find to this site and to reconnect with you all.
Many thanks to Bing for sending me the link!! Evidently it was in the alumni magazine but I didn't see it... usually I read it and look for news of all of you (and am disappointed) but this is so exciting. It's a window to part of my life I thought I had lost forever. I regret not keeping in touch with anyone.

Anyway, I am Leslie, was at Ship from 88-92, and might have been better known as Bing's Girlfriend. I was actually introduced that way at least once. Since I've graduated I actually moved CLOSER to Ship, I live in Chambersburg now. We have owned a house here since 99. I have a boring, stressful office job, a beautiful girlfriend, and two wonderful cats. I am very active in my church. I am also very ready for Spring. I hate winter, and can't wait to work in my flower beds.
I still love to read and am a Harry Potter fanatic. I wish I had stayed active in theater but I don't have time for it now, except as an audience member.

I love you all and I miss you. This still doesn't seem real to me. Are you really there? Also I don't feel very grown up yet.... can't believe it's been that long since college.

Hi Leslie!
It's great to hear from you!
and I hope you never feel grown up - that would be boring. Spring is almost here, plant the onions.

Hi Leslie! So great to hear from you. It's funny because I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan too! I devoured each book and am very depressed the series is over. I see it as a way to keep the kid in me alive. I have enough grown up responsibilities, I hope I always have some child like fun to hold on to. Post some pictures soon!

The most grown up I ever felt was when
David & I bought our couch, never mind the buying a house or having a kid. Somehow not having a couch we picked up off the curb or handed down from a dead great aunt became equivalent to adulthood.

Hi Leslie - welcome to the blog, a perfect way to avoid work on Monday morning. Glad to hear you are doing so well. I'm up your way often; my parents still live in Waynesboro, and my brother in Mont Alto. Potter-heads, unite!

Hi Leslie! Glad to hear you are doing well, and a Harry Potter fan too...Yippee! I too am very sad that the series has ended. Alan's comment is right - don't ever feel grown up, being young is so much more fun! Hope to see some photos soon.

Leslie said...

Thanks for the welcome. I am so happy to be here.

Lara, or any of you, If you are ever up my way give me a call!! We can get together and talk about Harry Potter!!!

Don't hold your breath for photos, I'd love to share some, but I don't really take many photos, and I don't own a scanner. I'm one of those technically challenged English majors remember? I'll need to get my Dad or sister to help.

Leslie, I thought you would get a kick out of this: Xavier’s bed time story right now is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!

Hi Leslie! So glad you posted! I haven't read Harry Potter (although I'am apparently missing the boat), but I love gardening. I would love to see pics of your garden & your famous flowered sofa too! :-)
