Hello everyone! I love retirement so much that I've done it three times: as a high school English teacher, a concierge in a large downtown Chicago hotel, and a community college librarian. However, I think I've done it the right way this time to put an end to all this.
I live in the heart of Chicago and enjoy all that an urban setting provides.
I have two wonderful adult children, two granddaughters and a grandson, terrific son-in-law and daughter-in-law and a same-sex domestic partner since 1998. Yes, it's been a full life. He and I enjoy a couple of self-planned European vacations a year, which are a much-needed break from his career as a funeral director. We're very low-key, easy-going mature men who are political junkies despite the dark days in America and the world with our President.
Looking forward to hearing from others around the world. If your language is one which doesn't use Latin characters, it would be wonderful to see how my name appears in your language. Many thanks!
