Okay, you wanted your own web site and then your brain decides to go on vacation. We'll start out with the basics. I'm 72 years old, but only when I look in the mirror, which is as little as possible. I live in Bakersfield. Ca. Where is that? In the desert, about 2 hours from LA and 4 to 5 hours from San Francisco or Las Vegas. Yes, I like it here. The only thing I miss is the ocean. So move you say. Well, I have a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, living room, family room. You get the idea. I've lived in this house 40 years, obviously a stable person. I would love to live on the coast, but could never afford the high cost of living there. I have 3 children, who left this rather rural town for bigger and better things. This is a great place to retire as it is easy to get around and as I said it's not as costly here.

I do just about everything around here. Brag brag!! This includes keeping the swimming pool clean, replacing the decking, which is all around the back yard. I have many many plants and trees. I have painted the inside and outside of this house. Well, you get the idea. Even though I have been retired for 14 years, I keep pretty busy. There are, of course, one or two little things that really to put it mildly, upsets me. Next chapter.
