Obviously I haven’t retired yet. I did for a while but with the change in the economy I decided it was best to go back to work to preserve my assets instead of using them up at this time. And, I find it very satisfying to be working per diem as a home infusion nurse. I have patients in Oregon on the north coast, up the Columbia Gorge, the Portland area and the Willamette Valley. I enjoy the driving and have been working at this job for the past 3 years. Since I can’t really do much traveling now (I do go back to Nebraska once or twice a year to visit family), I am really enjoying “bringing the world to my doorstep” through the Bed and Breakfast. I have a wonderful old Craftsman home which was beautifully restored by Julie and her husband, Michael. Check it out at www.salemoregonbedandbreakfast.com

I also enjoy quilting, reading, ballroom and country/western dancing, cooking, gardening. I have
had season tickets to PentacleTheatre for the past 25+ years. I collect antiques and way too much “stuff”. I’m a member of Willamette Institute for Continued Learning which is a terrific program at Willamette University.
Life is good!
