Sold my business, the Orient Country Store Ltd., in 2011 after 31 years of ownership and operation. My wife and I are starting to do some traveling and checking off the boxes on our bucket list. Where did the time go? Since retirement I have been helping out at various Farmer’s Markets from June 1st to Thanksgving in the Nassau County area of Long Island. The farm work I do is driving, setting up and selling produce. On the days I go to market I get two very good work outs which helps me stay in shape. I am still an active volunteer firemen of 37 years for the Orient Fire Department. My daughter and grandson live in LA and my son works and lives in Detroit. I have been active in my community serving on numerous boards and an 18 year stint on the local school board. I to adhere ‘our’ school motto,’ Be Worthy of Your Heritage’.
All of the above may seem droll but I have had a good life and met some very interesting people along the way.
