 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I retired in 2015 from Washburn University after teaching there for 32 years. I was awarded Emeritus status as Associate Professor of English. I am enjoying retirement: relaxing in a recliner, getting up late, reading fiction and nonfiction, going to movies, concerts, plays, and researching family genealogy. As they say, "Every day is a Saturday!" Health and balance issues limit the extent of my walking, but I try to take daily short walks using a cane. I am curently serving on the TWS Living History Team, proofing and editing Army profile "Reflections" sections upon administrator request.
