  • Retired August 31, 2012;
  • Drove to Dallas, OR  to help mom & dad finish settling into their new retirement apartment, and helped sort/get rid of a lot of old excess "stuff" - very productive week;
  • the weather was stunning the entire week we were in Oregon!  low 90's every day with clear blue skies;  very unusual for western Oregon in September.
  • stayed at mom & dad's old home with Susann's brother Phil all week;  had fresh picked, home-grown corn every night / DELICIOUS!
  • our cat Jake went with us and he acclimated almost immediately to his temporary home in Oregon;
  • mom & dad's new apartment is very tiny; we hung personal photos for them, helped them set up book shelves and got to know some of their neighbors;
  • mom is doing much better with onset of Parkinson's / new med's seem to be helping a lot; her Mac Degeneration is still an issue but she deals with it very well;
  • got to know the Dallas Retirement Village, eating their with the folks every day and met/had lunch with Walt & Sally Schroeder who live there now; old family friends from the 60's in Florence, OR;
