I am retired from Bank of America where my last title was Vice President, Consultant Applications Programming or something like that.  My last job dealt with interstate teller transactions.  Now I can pursue my four major areas of interest (in no particular order):

1.      Music, I study flute and still play some piano.

2.      Foreign Language:  My knowledge of Romance languages languish but will return if I travel to where I can use them (Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese).  Now I’m teaching myself Arabic.

3.      Cooking, I enjoy entertaining and concentrate mostly on Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on the food of Spain.

4.      Photography, my interest really took off last year when I toured South Africa.


Of course travel will be a part of my retirement plans. I read voraciously. I can say I’ve visited Iguaçu Falls in South America, Victoria Falls in Africa, and I have never been to Niagara Falls.

Now that I am retired, I have to decide what I want to be when I grow up.

As for updates on other classmates, I don’t really keep up with anyone from Arvin High, and just a handful from my college years. However, Jane Gilchrist and I always seem to phone when there is family news like the deaths of our parents who were good friends.  Fred Garrison and John Mitchell attended my mother’s funeral and I had an opportunity to visit briefly with them in January 2001.

 
Why is it that men age and the women do not? I can tell you, Carlos, that our beards match although I confess mine is whiter.

I wish you all the best and look forward to browsing your well conceive and executed website.
