Hi Frances -- I'm amazed that someone actually remembered me!! I'm sort of retired, too, although I still work 6 days a week. At least it's doing something I love -- managing a high-end boutique thrift shop benefiting Rappahannock General Hospital in Kilmarnock, VA, near the Chesapeake Bay. My husband Mike & I moved here in 1998, after our kids flew the coop. We'd wanted to move from WPB for quite a while and when opportunity knocked, we answered.
Our first grandchild was born 11 months ago and, after living in France for 6 years, our younger daughter & her husband currently reside in Norfolk, only 2 hrs. away. They'll be there for the next 2-3 yrs. until Alex is reassigned (he's a diplomat with the French Dept. of State currently working at the NATO facility at the Norfolk Naval Base).
So, that's my life in a nutshell -- how about you?
