We moved to Marion IL, near Carbondale and SIU, in August after retiring with 35 years service at EPA. we are renting a farm house until we buy a house with a farm pond (bluegill, catfish, bass & crappie) -- I also have a Toyota Tacoma Pickup 4x4 to fit in with the natives in Southern Illinois.

Corliss is teaching in Mexico City until June, but has been home for 3 weeks during the holidays. It has been a change to retire -- no responsibility, but no authority, but I don't miss the EPA.

We saw the Vandevoorns in June. They stayed overnight with us in LaGrange before we moved.
