We live in the suburb of Happy Valley which is also Portland, Oregon. We are both retired teachers. We love New York, have visited many times, and have recently discovered Brooklyn as our son and his wife have moved there. We also have a married daughter living about 20 miles from us in Oregon and an 8 year old granddaughter. We are both voracious readers, Marilyn also sews and likes computer research, and Cary is a professional pianist, mainly piano bar style music but he also plays with a big band in Portland. We love small good restaurants, going to movies and plays, and spending time on the Oregon Coast...which is beautiful by the way!
