I have been an insurance agent (with the same company) since 1973) Even though I"m still licensed, I'm "emeritis" statis, which basically means retired since 2004. My husband (of 41 years, and also retired) & I moved from Oregon in '04 down to retire in Mesquite, Nv. where we pretty much do what we want to do & enjoy the beautiful weather, & yes, spend some time in casinos & lots of entertainment. We do lots of "rockhounding", in which my husband built us an amazing waterfall in our back yard out of all the beautiful rocks we had collected over the years. We love to fish (however not much opportunity to anymore), explore (even gone mining for "gems" a few times), and I collect various species of flowers & leaves, dry & press the, & create beautiful greeting cards & framed picture art with them (most of which I give away to family & friends). One of my favorite hobbies is decorating things out of old jewelry. This means going to a lot of garage & estate sales. I have made statues & carousel horses with as many as 800 pieces of jewelry on each of them. Thanks to my success as an agent, I have won many great all-expense
paid trips for my husband & I throughout the US & abroad. I am fortunate to have both of my parents still living. My dad (age 92) still writes articles for the newspaper & does a weekly news commentation for the radio up in his community in Joseph, Or. Dad just returned from Washington DC after being selected for the "Honor Flight" for WWII veterans to have an all-expense paid trip to tour the new WWII memorial & various monuments. He had a great time.
Unfortunately my son (who is now 44) has been very ill for this past year, battling a number of health problems. He finally is getting some quality care from newly acquired doctor & surgeon whom we pray can help his body heal so he can get back to "normal" again.
I have 4 grandchildren (all girls), the oldest is 26 & going to college. Trips are made each summer to Or. to see family & friends.
We are blessed to have pretty good health yet, & enjoy life! That,s pretty much it. I look forward to seeing everyone at the reunion, reminising & rekindling old friendships!

School Story:

I still get a smile on my face when I remember the "can-can" dance that 6 of us girls did at the talent show (I think in probably 1963) We even made our own can-can dresses, and, ofcourse, were a big hit!!

Thanks for the birthday wish, Judy. We just added another grandchild (girl) to the fold. I'm happy, but I wish they'd get married first. Enjoy Oregon--Joe

Sorry I missed your birthday Doug. We left on the 21st for an emergency trip up to Joseph, Or to see dad. The dr. told us her was gravely ill with pneumonia & his heart is only at about 15% of working capacity. (He's almost 96). But, by some miracle, he pulled through again & will probably be sent home from hospital tomorrow. We just back a little bit ago from there & are now back in Mesquite, Nv. Dad just hopes he can make it to August when there's a big family reunion up in Joseph, so he can see all his family once more. Believe it or not, he still writes articles for the local newspaper & does weekly news commentations on the radio! Anyway, hope your birthday was good & that you & yours are all well & happy. I still think of you often.
