I have worked for Head Start for 15 years as a Family Service Worker (Social Service Component), 5 years in Stark Co. Ohio and 10 in Upshur Co. This May will be the beginning on my retirement. I just don't have a clue what I will do now. But I get bored very easily so I had better think of something quick-like. I have now been retired for 16 months and have loved every second of it! Who knew? People ask me what I am doing and I answer anything, anywhere and anytime I want. Have been able to pursue some new interests and am looking for something else to get into. I now have been married 47 1/2 years and our oldest grandchild is now a freshman at WVU. People always told me that the older you get the faster time goes. I truly understand that now. It seems like the day is over before I get turned around. The USA has changed so much since we of the 60s grew up that I just don't like it much and am looking forward more everyday to a place better. "
