Our option packages to Rome, Athens, or Cairo allows you to spend Thanksgiving at one of these historic cities at an unbelievably O'Connor continued from page 47 think so," she says with conviction. "In our law schools today at least half the students are women. I fully expect to see the percentages of women in the practice reflected in the roughly similar percentages on the bench and in other activities in which lawyers are generally engaged. "So I certainly do think we are going to see that reflected—not only here but in judicial offices across the nation." Have the confines of Washington and its turmoil made a severe change in the lifestyle of Justice O'Connor after a childhood spent in the wideopen spaces and an early career in ozonic Arizona? Her answer is not surprising: "When we lived in Arizona I was an active worker in a variety of civic projects and a volunteer in a good many different agencies. Today, I don't have the time to do much in terms of caring for my household or anything else except doing work that's demanded by this job. So it's a complete change." Once an avid cook, Justice O'Connor must now leave most of the cooking to others. Her diet has changed too, "rather dramatically," she says. Once a staunch beef eater, the justice has turned to fish, fruits and vegetables. She says she tries to avoid sugars and salt but confesses a weakness for coffee. She also takes several vitamins each day. As for indulging in her favorite recreation—tennis—the justice says she was very fond of her tennisplaying friends in Phoenix and misses them in Washington. She still manages to get in a game a week, at noon, in a facility near the Court. And her beloved boys? "They are all very responsible young adults; all have performed well indeed," she says. "I see them already taking on Jobs as volunteers in some of the things I was interested in long ago. And that's just wonderful to me. I think it's important that young people get involved, and I'm extremely proud that our sons are becoming a Part of community activities." Sandra O'Connor's busy work schedule may have served through the Years to bring her family closer together. "We all like sports," she says. "Through the years we planned our vacations so we could take them skiing—winter skiing in Utah and California, water-skiing in summer. We also like to play tennis, as you know, and golf. The children learned to play both sports. We also managed to take backpacking trips and camping trips together. "Years ago we had family gatherings for our friends in Phoenix where we would stage things like 'Family Olympics Day.' We'd set up a whole range of sports activities and encourage each family to construct their own flag, march in the grand parade and enter all the events as families." The older the boys got, the more their father enjoyed being with them, she says, adding, "I think they are as close as a father and sons could possibly be. John has such a great sense of humor, and all three of our boys are very witty. They have a wonderful time entertaining one another." John O'Connor's sense of humor, a tonic for Sandra as well, has been a great antidote to the somber issues she must contend with on the Supreme Court. "It just bubbles out of him on an impromptu basis," she says. "Sometimes the first statement of the day will be some funny little comment that will have us both laughing. He has kept me laughing for 30 years." A low cost. All accommodations will be strictly deluxe first class.
