We are both former school teachers, who left teaching and went into very different careers. I have 3 adult children now, and one grandchild ( that son lives in Silicon Valley with his Irish wife ), and another son, engaged ( age 43 yrs ) plus a 29 yr old daughter ( also recently engaged ). My partner has two sons, both married, one with two children. He has been farming for forty years. We recently reconnected and find we enjoy each others' company after all these years.
