Hello everyone! I'm a retired high school English teacher and also just retired from a post-retirement position as a concierge in a large downtown Chicago hotel. I still work part-time as an adjunct reference librarian in a suburban Chicago community college. I live in the heart of Chicago and enjoy all that an urban setting provides.
I have two wonderful adult children, two granddaughters, a grandson born in November, 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!
