After "really" retiring 2 years ago, my husband, DuWayne Smith and I are now settled in one of our favorite places - Tuscon. I'm a retired California High School special educator now doing democratic political volunteer work plus some literacy tutoring with middle school kids. My husband's retired from his 33 year career as a therapist/counselor with the federal government .... his concern for the current status of our new veterans has gotten him named to our congresswoman's "veterans" committee -- to give her input. I go to the local nature parks, tea room and gift shops a lot but he's a "docent" showing people all the all the birds, bugs, and beautiful plants (not my thing)!
Our sons are now married and getting settled with their careers: Matt, 31, an artist and teacher -- Austin, TX. And Branden, 29, not exactly using his journalism degree but happy with his computer "gaming"work is in San Francisco.
Peace and hugs to all!!
