We love keeping active, body, mind and soul. Jim retired as director of a senior citizens center, and Louise retired as an English and creative writing professor at the local community college. She now teaches small memoir workshops and Jim teaches history classes. Louise writes and is working on her fifth book. We both love to interact with people of all ages and we are tolerant and open people. Jim runs three times a week, works on his art, reads, does house projects and volunteer work. He loves watching sports. We both love reading both fiction and non-fiction, visiting museums, watching movies, seeing plays, visiting with family and friends and experiencing the great outdoors. We love meeting new people from all around the world. We travel back East once a year to visit family, and Louise recently taught a workshop in St. Thomas where her sister lives. We love to travel in California, as well. Louise went to the U. of Wisconsin and keeps up with college friends and she and Jim both attended the University of Buffalo. We visit Buffalo where Jim grew up and New York City where Louise grew up! We also have grandchildren in Connecticut so love to visit the East Coast.
We also still love to camp and Jim recently climbed to the top of Telescope Peak in Death Valley. We're also both independent people and understand and respect the need for privacy!
