We both finished high school in 1950; Frank in Lexington, and Ellie in Concord (MA); and we were married that year. Our first home was on Cape Cod where we lived year round for five years and summers for ten while Frank did his Ph.D. Since, we have resided in North Carolina: Chapel Hill, Charlotte, and on Lake Norman, which is our principal residence. However, we spend summers in the N. C. mountains; and winters in a park model trailer near Frostproof, Florida. We have three children (Frank P., our oldest, died of lung cancer in 2008), four grand-children, two step grand-children, (both Marines!) and one great grand-child.

The one and only vacation rental on Lake Norman providing a pontoon boat* - vitually free since the house itself is fairly priced at $1500. Pontoon boats here on Lake Norman are rented for $250/day. 'Do the math' - 7X250 = 1750 !
*The boat is a 24 ft Playbuoy Admiral, Coast Guard rated for 15 passengers, and it has a four stroke 50 HP Honda motor. No mixing gas and oil required.
In addition to the pontoon boat we have a Special Guest Fishing Permit from the state that allows guests to fish anyhwhere from our decks, docks, piers, seawall and beach without buying a personal fishing license.
