Comments:

I retired from teaching high school physics after 23 years. I had a lot of fun and enjoyed working with the high school kids. The students I worked with were terrific; they were very smart and worked way harder than I ever did in high school. I have great hope for the future of our scientific community if my students are any indication of what's to come.
My daughter and her husband had a son, and my first grandchild, in December. They live only 15 minutes away, so I'm going to spoil my grandson rotten.
Charlotte and I bought a place on the west coast of Florida, so we will probably spend a couple months every year down there. No plans on permanently leaving Colorado - we love it here.
I'm still swimming after all these years. My training partners and I just set three masters world swimming relay records last week in California. We had a lot of fun.

School Story:

Since I loved high school so much, I decided to go back as a physics teacher. Mr. Zacur, a great teacher and one of the smartest at Lebo, inspired me to teach physics. If you didn't have Zacur, you missed one of the best. The man seemed to know everything. He also had a great sense of humor.
