Nearly everyone has two lives: in my case teaching and a life after teaching I enjoyed my 37 years of teaching (24 in Kelvin) but in 1988 I had to adjust to my second life.

I began by running for school board for the Winnipeg School Division in the 1988 by-election and came in second. Yes, there were more than two running! Next I taught in the literacy program, canvassed for the Salvation Army, the Kidney Foundation and the Humane Society. I walked dogs for the Humane Society and wrote character references for adoption (they all passed!).

My wife and I traveled not only across Canada but also to Portugal and the U.K. While in the U.K. we stopped in Plymouth for a few days. It was a nostalgic moment for me – I had not been there since September 1943. Our escort group sailed to the Bay of Biscay and never returned.

I ride a 13 speed mountain bike (at one speed), downhill ski, cross country ski, paddle, and swim three times a week. I have my favorite book store close by and another in Toronto.

Life is busy with two grandsons here (I play road hockey every Friday) and a granddaughter in Toronto.
