Mike and Caitlin just bought their first house in Black Mountain NC. Jen and Brandon are living the farm life in Marion NC. We are heading out to visit from Dec 23rd-Jan 3rd. We’re very proud of the people they’ve become, and the people they are raising.
The exodus of our kids and their kids from California has been tough on us – we really miss them, but it also made our decision to move from California an easier one.

Mary is in protracted negotiation with the state to get her Hawaiian Massage Therapist license. They seem to be very nice, but the process is quite frustrating for someone who's been licenced in CA for years.
She’s looking forward to working at one of the resorts in the area.
I am starting my last year with United. Counting down my last 20 or so landings before Dec 2020 when I become redundant at 65. I like my job, but unlike Mary, I’m looking forward to NOT working. There is much active recreation, ceramics work, and relaxing to be done.
The older we get, the more we realize how important our friends and family are to us. Our life spans are finite, and we cherish the time we have available to spend with all of you.
