Update 8/1/2009 - "it's been hot here - 105 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday. Today was a little cooler - 97 degrees."
"I'm going to stay with the VA for a little while. I enjoy the work for the most part. I especially like the people in the O.R. I actually like working and will probably do something else after I retire.
My kids (adults really) are all doing fine. Two of them live here in the Portland area. The other lives in Colorado, but I will see her in a couple of weeks. My only grandchild belongs to her."
Update 1/26/2008 - I have a girlfriend in Paris now - Gabrielle - who I go back and forth to see. This is hard on both of us, but I plan to retire from the VA this summer. When that happens I will be able to spend most of my time in France with her.
