Comments:

Worked for the Portland Fire Bureau for 27.5 years, retiring as a Division Chief.

Stayed pretty close to home for several years after retiring as we cared for large numbers of foster kids over a 15 years span. Three of them stuck and we adopted them in or around 1992.

We currently spend winters in the Palm Springs area and this winter bought a condo in Rancho Mirage.

School Story:

Not many school stories as I was on a work release schedule and spent most of my spare time working at the Regal Service Station on Interstate and Lombard. Swing shift after school and graveyard in the summer.
