(1) Family life is great. Five children 25-35 and youngest about the graduate. All doing well, though not without specific struggles from time to time. Three of them live nearby here in Richmond VA, along with all 6 grands.
(2) Wife and I are in semi-retirement and major role reversal mode. She is working at a paying job for the first time in 36 years and starting a small business. Meanwhile, I'm finally learning how to be the person responsible for shopping and cooking. So far, she has not become ill from any of my meals. I also help her with some grunt work for her business, which is taking off by word of mouth (with the help of a Facebook business page, with requests for work coming in weekly. She's doing what she really enjoys and I'm finding out I am a pretty darn good cook. At least she says so. I'm done with full time work at this point.
(3) Starting my first trip to the west coast in a little over a week, catching son's BYU graduation along the way. San Francisco and Seattle lie in our path. Wife was born in San Fran. I grew up a Giants and Willie Mays fan while growing up in the Tampa FL area and now I'm going to see a game at AT&T park for the first time. I'll probably cry when I see the place. We have seats in right center, just in front of McCovey Cove. If I die at the game, my life will truly be complete.
