Linda Egland Dean

My name changed, again, from Egland-Haddock to Egland-Dean. Just can't get it right. (It's just easier to lop off the end than change the whole name thing again.) I have two daughters; LinLee Poppa and Melissa Martinsen.

I have 3 grandchildren: Julia Poppa(age 10) lives in Kansas City, Missouri with LinLee and her father Philip Poppa; Jack Marinsen(age 8) and Luke Martinsen (age 7) live in Avon Lake, Ohio with Melissa and their father David Martinsen.

We are all very close and I am presently (tomorrow, 2 Oct.07) taking my dog and motor home to visit KC. for a couple, three weeks. I do a lot of traveling with my yellow lab, Maggie, in our traveling home. We both, two, just us girls, love it. I have lived in Ann Arbor for most of the past 30 years. I had a 3 year period in Kansas City but returned to A2.

After leaving Florida I lived in New Orleans, LA where LinLee was born. Then to Cleveland, Ohio where Melissa was born. Their father was in medical school at LSU, N.O. and had his internship and residency at the Cleveland Clinic. After, we moved to Lorain, Ohio.......don't go; where he joined his father in an established practice. Finished with the "doctor syndrome" I divorced, remarried and moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here, I returned to the University got my "over-due" degree. Actually they threw me out because I had no more to learn in my fields of history, english and secondary ed.. (I was a prodessional student, you see.) I was taking graduate courses without being a graduate. I graduated and decided to sell real estate. Makes sense. I was so good at it I was crowned (again) queen real estate agent of Ann Arbor. Just kidding, but I did really well............until I decided it was too much trouble and caused too much trouble. I became a traveling for fun housewife from there on. We won't talk about the trouble following one!

Now, that is "sort of" a catch up but you really don't want to know the rest. It's perfectly boring! Or, maybe not.
