After retiring from teaching in Brainerd, MN and California, and as a Fulbright Exchange Teacher to York, England, I moved to St. Joseph, MN. I still do substitute teaching and do many volunteer hours.
My hobbies are reading-historical novels, bigraphies, Revolutionary and Civil Wars. As for exercise, I’m a walker and a hiker in the USA and abroad. I have climbed walls in Great Britain, Israel, Greece and her islands. I climbed Ayres Rock in Austrailia and Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand. In this country, the 10K Crazy Horse Memorial Volksmarch in South Dakota, four times so far. I go to Glacier Park every few years to enjoy the hikes there. In 2010 I hiked a trail that I hadn’t done in 49 years. The climb was 1,194 feet and five miles each way. I walk most every day for two to six miles.
And I met Princes Diana while on an exchange program of teachers between Brainerd, MN and York, England. I’m the one in the ‘corner’ behind Princes Di.
