Episcopal priest (since 1978)

What we've been doing since 1969: Va & I never dated in high school, but we both went to Southwestern at Memphis. We were married during the summer of our sophomore year & graduated in 1973. We left Memphis in 1974 when I went to seminary in Sewanee, TN. After one year in Chattanooga we moved to Newport, TN - in the Great Smoky Mountains - and have been here ever since. I'm the priest at Episcopal Church of the Annunciation.
We've been involved in lots of stuff over the years - check out our home page (link above).
Several years ago we took up dancing together and now dance at every opportunity - at least once a week. We dance anywhere from formal ballroom settings to our local honky-tonk - just give us a dance floor & some music. We do swing & Latino (rhumba, merengue, chacha etc.) better than more formal stuff.

The pic at the right is us at our daughter Arwen's wedding in 2006. Below are pix of us at our son's wedding in September, 2009, and then one of us all (except Anna, Geoffrey's wife) at Emilie's wedding in Dardenay, France, in July 2009. Underneath is a picture of our French godson/namesake, Henri Jean David Colpart, at 9 months old. At the bottom is a picture of us n August 2011.
