Stories while at Lanier :

For our first pep rally, I took some friends with me in my dad's Big buick. We had so much fun. When I let the first girl out, I backed out of the driveway and slammed into a little Rambler Metropolitan which was parked in the street. I went to the door of the house, told the man what I did and asked him to let me call my dad and the police. He cussed me out very explicitly and refused to let me call. I went home and decided not to tell Dad. The next day the man called my dad and said I had backed into his car and bent the frame. Needless to say I did not drive for a very long time, not for backing into a car but for failing to tell Dad about it. Very profound lesson.

Neil, I forgot to tell you that our grandson graduated from Auburn in Graphic Design. Matt now lives in Orange Beach, Al. with his wife, Arden and my GREAT granddaughter , Cambrie Morgan Baltzell who is 8 months old and the most wonderful baby ever born. That of course is strictly our opinion! You and Nan must come to Millbrook to visit and reminisce over the past. Small world isn't it. Jackie

Neil, you don,t know me, but you worked with my husband Bill worked at Industrial Relations and with my daddy (Marsh Smith) at First National. I grew up in that bank. I
played on those marble steps that went to the balcony where Daddy was a loan officer.
He was quite a man. I just wish he had been around longer. Jackie Baltzell

Anne, so good to see you in the Lanier profiles. It's been a long time. You have done so well.. I went to Troy State College after Lanier. Came home and married Bill Baltzell and we had 3 boys. Our youngest died in an accident on his motorcycle in 2009. The man did not see him. Worst that can happen to anyone. We have 5 grandchildren and on GREAT grandaughter, Cambrie. She is 8 months and wonderful. I can't wait to read your books. You have really done well. My biggest accomplishment was my wonderful children and grand and great grandchildren. Hope to see you at the reunion. Jackie

Hey Virginia, so good to see you on the Lanier profiles. Did not know you were so close. We live in Millbrook and have since 1976. No horses. I watched my Daddy work himself to death on that farm. Never forget riding MOE up to your house to surprise you on your birthday. What a day. Bill and I had 3 boys Russell, Andrew, and Juan (adopted sort of). Our middle son was killed in a motorcycle accident in July of 2009. A man pulled into Andrew's lane at the last minute. There is NOTHING to compare to losing a child. On a lighter note we have 5 grandchildren and one GREAT grandbaby. Her name is Cambrie Baltzell. Russell's oldest boy, Matt and his wife blessed us with her July 14 . Looking forward to the Reunion. Hope to see you there. Call me. (414-9432) and we will get together. Wish we could get the horsey set together again. Jackie
