September 06, 1950 travel consultant/tour guide www.TheTripChicks.com Single
Hi everyone!

     What fun catching up with the news on this site & re-living the good ole times at BHS. Really enjoyed seeing lots of you at the pool party this past Friday night. I think I was the only female there in shorts. [lucky for y'all I forgot my bathing suit at home]  Wish I could've made the Saturday night party, but know you all had a blast.

     In case we don't get a chance to meet in person soon & you're curious about what's been going on with Lombardi, here's a quick [well, it's not that quick] summary of my colorful life since the '60's & '70's:

---Got a Master's in Teaching English as a 2nd Language/Linguistics & went on to teach in Switzerland, Korea, Germany, & the USA.

---After teacher burn-out, ventured into the business world as an international vacation travel agent & tour guide. For several years, subbed as-needed for Clark Howard on his "Friday Flyer" AM 750 WSB radio show until his national syndication. My secret [until now] dream is to one day host a national travel talk radio show, a sort of NPR-ish one. That'd be a huge step up from the one I currently do on 1620 AM, Radio Sandy Springs.
  
__In the early '90's, started a 2.5 [the .5 is my co-worker's EMT/firefighter hubby] person leisure travel agency. We're called The Trip Chicks of Passport to Adventure Inc. & we specialize in small group, mostly international trips, along with regular tours, active/fitness adventure vacations, & cruises. I love researching & planning world-wide vacations for people of all ages. It's been a wild ride in an often turbulent industry, but no matter what, travel will always be my passion. 

__Been blessed to have traveled to 60+ countries over the years.  Europe is still my favorite stomping grounds & actually would love to live there in my older age. Foreign languages are another big interest of mine.

__Middle-aged fitness-wise, since 1996 I've managed to finish 23 marathons & a few triathlons, all standing up & smiling. I admit I tied for last place in two marathons, one in Iceland [70 competitors] & one in Berlin, Germany [15,000 runners, most very serious athletes indeed.] I really like the kind with so few females in our age group that there's a big chance I might even get some sort of an award in the 55+ age category, despite my bottom-tier finish. Most of the time, I've been way too busy picking up coins en route anyway. The "Muddy Buddy" is another sporting event favorite of mine with the running, cycling, obstacle course, & mud pit. Recently have taken up Chinese Dragon Boat Racing just for fun. I heard it's supposed to tone upper arm flab.  Will let you know if it works..Agree strongly with Satchel Paige who said, "Just keep moving & keep the juices flowing."   

___In my "almost claim to fame," was shocked to make the semi-finals in casting for the CBS reality tv show "The Amazing Race" with an equally nuts female friend of mine [71 year old daredevil originally from Bermuda.]  That show & the news are about the only things I watch regularly on television.  Need to broaden my viewing horizons, I'd say. 

___ Am now writing our first travel book with my business colleague & still hoping to marry [into money? :-) ] before I hit 65.  Bill Bell, keep up the work as my guy scout, o.k.?  I really appreciate it & need the help!

     Well, that should do it for now. Hope I didn't bore you...If you made it to the end here, patience is definitely one of your many virtues. Take care, stay healthy, be happy, keep in touch, & thanks for the memories.     

Ciao,
Ann Lombardi

August 17, 1950 Computer Analyst Married 2
I am happily married to Melanie Mulkey Long who graduated from BHS in 1976.  Of course, we didn't know each other when I attended Briarcliff.  I have lived in the metro Atlanta all my life.  Currently I work for Intuit (the TurboTax/Quicken company) doing software performance testing in the Peachtree Corners part of Norcross.  Melanie also works in the computer field for Macy's Systems and Technologies in Duluth.

We live in a subdivision near Northlake Mall and take care of our pet Beagles who are spoiled rotten.  We enjoy traveling, boating at Lake Lanier, taking in sporting events and plays/concerts. 

I have reluctantly put the guitar down for now.  Some of you might remember my music playing days.  I've been too busy making a living right now.

Love to hear from you guys -- before we grow too old to remember one another.

May 04, 1950 Director of Human Resources Married 1
How great to hear about you all!  Even though I left Briarcliff at the end of my Sophomore year, I still consider it as "my high school".  And who could forget WD Thompson and the "red bench"!  After moving to Charlotte for my last 2 years of high school and to Florida for college, I immediately moved back to Atlanta and have been here ever since (except for a 2 year stay in Iran).  

My husband and I have been married for 31 years and have a wonderful daughter who is currently earning her PhD at UCLA.  I spent almost 20 years in Accounting but 15 years ago earned a degree at GSU in Human Resources and never looked back.
  
Thanks to the committee for putting together such an amazing website and fun weekend.  Unfortunately, I will be in L.A. at the time of the reunion so I won't be able to attend, but certainly I'll be there in spirit.

Cheers!
Kathy

August 05, 1950 City Engineer Married 2
Judi and I won't be able to come back for the reunion this time, but it sure is fun reading about everyone and remembering those good ol' days.  As for me, I married Judi Thomas from Towers High School in 1970, finished college at GA Tech, did a 20-year career as an Army Engineer, and am now the City Engineer for Colorado Springs.  Both of our sons are out here in Colorado, and we have 3 precious grandsons now, too.  So, life is good!  It is nice to recall the people and fun times from BHS, so thanks to those who are keeping these connections alive.

July 27, 1950 higher education Divorced 3
It's been a long time. I'm looking forward to catching up. In a nutshell: 8 years in Philadelphia (grad school and work), 9 years in south Louisiana (pastor), 13 years in St. Louis (associate dean), 2 years now in a really small town central Pennsylvania (4 hours from NY, Philadelphia, DC and an hour from Target and Sears!) as an administrator at a small (5000 student) public university. It's beautiful country and summers are nice, but I'd return to the Southeast in heartbeat. Three wonderful daughters: St. Louis, Columbia (MO), and Pittsburgh. See you in August!

July 18, 1950 Physician Married 1
Married for 30 years.  Have a beautiful daughter in college.  I have been a physician with the federal government for the past 30+ years, last 15 with federal law enforcement.  We have moved all over the US with the gov and now live in Peachtree Corners/Norcross.  We love to travel and eat well.  As others, I can't believe that it has been 40 years--reading the snapshots of others made me want to contribute mine.  Thanks for the memories.
