How did you spend your "working" years, including volunteer work?

Paint chemist. Graduated from Washburn with BS in chemistry and joined Glidden company research center in Cleveland for 1 year before moving to Dallas. Spent about 15 fun and exciting years there before it got too big, then moved to Eugene, Oregon. Spent 19 years there before the winter weather got to me. But it had the most beautiful other 3 seasons of any place. Moved to Ocala, Florida 22 years ago and have enjoyed the weather ever since. Got to experience 3 hurricanes in one year. Glad we didn't live on the coast. Enjoying 1+ year of retirement. Wish I could get my wife to commit to retirement so we had more time to travel. Volunteered in technical societies.

What are your hobbies, pastimes, causes, leisure activities?

Gardening, photography, diving, line dancing, Lions International, politics, enviromental issues

What's on your "bucket list"?

More,European travel, fly in a WWII bomber, commercialize digital photography work, succeed in growing beared iris in Florida, go diving on the reefs off Cuba and Australia, live to get to know great-grandchildren, be involved in archaeological research in Florida waters, help preserve the fresh water resources in Florida, join a wagon train trip in Kansas, watch in person K-State beat KU in basketball, watch HP beat Topeka High again in football.

School Memories:

Beating Topeka High in football, along with a number of sports memories in basketball and gymnastics. Some fun classes and some tough teachers. Getting to know people I had not grown up with and would only know for a few short years before leaving the state.

Comments:

Thoroughly enjoying retirement after almost 4 years. Doing a little consultant work, but it doesn't get in the way of fun. Too many pets to do much traveling yet (1 dog and 3 cats), but do get to Blue Ridge Mountains, North Georgia Mountains, Sanibel Island each year. Sandi is an excellent artist and threatens to leave me at home the next time to Sanibel so she can just paint all day and have Josie the dog for all the company she needs. I can remember the younger days when someone 71 was OLD and walked slow, bent over, and didn't do much of anything (unless you were a farmer). Now I have 2 artificial knees and one shoulder. 3 Back surgeries and got through prostate cancer, but still have a lot of fun line dancing and gardening and photography. Might move one day soon. Sandi has never gotten used to the Florida summer heat and humidity. If I goes first (likely) she is moving, probably back to some mountains.

Happy birthday Paula!. I still remember the stormy nite for the Sadie Hawkins? dance. I pulled over on the road when it was storming so bad it was afraid to keep driving. Missed my opportunity to be a cad! When I got home 30 minutes late, dad grounded me for 30 days. And in front of all the teachers that were there playing bridge! Oh, the good times! I liked my football picture better than my senior picture. Have a great one!

Happy Birthday Diana. Hope you have a good day and don't skid on any slippery streets today. If you had anything to do with the Florida legislature you would be SO Disgusted! And Republican super majority to boot. That's why I am not registered as Independent. And I won't get into the national level. Almost makes we want to reopen a Twitter account and try to offset the extremists on both sides. Bring back James Stewarts's "Mr. Smith goes to Washington." Hope to see you later this year,

Mike, Sandi and Josie

Happy Birthday Bev. Get ready for some colder weather. We have poorly planned a trip to Sanibel next week. At least were not going north.
