Jim says I should up date our information so here goes. (I wish I knew how to print out this entire roll call as I go back and refer to it often.. . .Does anyone know how to do that? We have seen Rhonda probably 30 times by now. . . 11 times so far in 2009. We took the whole family (there are only 5 of us) on 2009 cruise and are signed up for 2010-just Jim & myself. Jim retired with 30 years from Alliant, our local utility on a Friday and went to work the following Monday for ITC International Transmission Company/ULC Utility Line Construction Services out of Novi, Michigan which is a suburb of Detroit. As you can tell he is a true workaholic. Except when I mention lets go see Rhonda then he's ready to take off for a few days! (It's ok She keeps him young and I get to go . . I love to go!) I am now happily retired at 58. I was a late bloomer, staying home with my boys, driving a school bus 10 years then taught for 18 years. I teased Jim that I'd never been a kept woman and he said go for it and retire. . . so I did and LOVE it! I super enjoy being Nana to my grandson Dean (Martin) Goodman who is also a huge RHONDA fan! Sons Tob & Jod (Dean's dad) are really getting into the Bluegrass theme also. Toby is especially a plays bass guitar but doesn't get many weekends off for festivals. He has used his vacation time for 3 cruises. Jody just bought a standup bass, is a teacher and plans to be attending more festivals this summer. Rhonda fan, We really enjoy the message board, roll call, and meeting as many Ragers in person as we can. Hope to meet more Ragers down the road. The Goodmans

Hi everyone!! I just saw this neat little thread so here I go:
My name is Elizabeth Cox and I am 18 years old. I grew up in Blacksburg, SC and just recently moved to Spartanburg into an apartment with my best friend. I am going to Spartanburg Community College and will transfer to a university to pursue a degree in zoology or animal psychology. I have two labs named Sammy and Jake and a Quarter horse named Kibbles. They are the loves of my life and I treat them like my children! I have been a huge fan of Rhonda and the Rage for about 4 years. I hope that once I get a job and can start saving my money, I will be able to travel around to festivals like so many of you! My hobbies include soccer, my high school marching band of which I served as Drum Major, almost all types of music, singing, guitar, saxophone, reading, writing, animals, gardening, cooking, camping, hiking, repelling, and the internet Hopefully I can meet y'all someday!! Feel free to add me on facebook if you'd like! http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/lifeismusic2009?ref=profile
