Well Heellloooooo, Gawgeous! (That Would Be Me)

I guess I've "made it".  This article (written by a really funny veteran reporter and sports freak like me, Tom Jackman) was published today in the online version of The Washington Post.  It may soon be in print on a newsstand near you!

 Now, in this article Mr. Jackman makes several references to my use of "adult language".  I thought there was this on-the-record/off-the-record thing?  I'm such a rookie at this, you savvy reporter, you!  Ah, well.  I really do talk that way, so what the hell?

The word is really getting out there about the amazing Parkinson's research that is behind our Everest trek.  We're really thrilled, but more importantly (of course):  I'm (kind of) famous!  They like me, they really like me!

So as I get ready to attend my 40th high school reunion -- Upper Arlington High School Class of '73, Go Bears -- here's this old lady telling her story in the Washington Post.  How the hell did that happen!? I mean seriously!  I might be older and grayer, but at least I'll have a story to tell..................
