Sing the Mac Rouser now»
I live in my boyhood home; have two children, 5 and 17; been married 24 years to a Mac grad, Lisa Isele ’82; run a convenience store chain (it’s not glamorous, but there is good money in fountain soda and salty snacks!); do community service; and blah, blah, blah!
What I really want to say is that I attended my wife's 25-year reunion last year and it was a blast! Once I got over the idea that I would only recognize a few people (accept it — that's what 25 years will do), I settled down in the idea that I could meet new people with which I hold a true commonness - because we were all cut from the common Mac cloth. Our Mac years were formative ones for us all. Believe it or not, through all our diversity, we are similar because of this important shared history. Meeting lots of folks again at the reunion was a type of self-discovery. Besides, it was a great party — or should I say, a series of great parties.
My Mac Memories:
Mac has become such a fine and heralded institution, with such a great national reputation and such positive momentum, I get a kick out of just calling myself a Mac grad. Through attending my wife's reunion, I have familiarized myself again with Mac, and I can speak more knowledgably (and enthusiastically) about it. Over all, I'm really looking forward to another really fun 25-year reunion. I hope to see you soon. You don't have to remember me because we already know each other — we are all MAC grads.
