My daughter Megan and her husband Taylor Weiss are both Pomona grads (Class of 91 and 90 respectively). The family picture shows them with their two children: James (5 in April, 2006) and Lucie who celebrated her first birthday in February, 2006. Megan and family live in the Ballard area of Seattle which is only 110 minutes from our home in White Rock, BC. We also have three grandsons in Tacoma, WA, and two granddaughters in Atlanta, GA. Having more time with family has been a one of the blessings of being retired.

This is a picture of me with James. He loves to pretend. I've shared this picture with friends who ask how I like retirement. It is wonderful.
