Comments:

I LOVE retirement! I am so busy I don't know how I found the time to work! Among other things I play in a ukulele group, take an acting workshop, belong to the Saint Bernard Club of America, a Hollywood Bowl subscriber, and enjoy going out into my backyard in the morning to pick an orange off the tree for breakfast.



I've spoken with so many nice people on the search for missing classmates that I'm really looking forward to the reunion.

1-15-2015
Well, my life has changed since the reunion. At a time in life when my friends are losing their husbands or getting divorced, I have finally (unexpectedly) found myself with the nicest man in the world! I've been alone so long that it is difficult, but definitely worth it.

I am playing my sax again and I'm about to join the LAPD concert band. My boyfriend is already a member. Life just keeps getting better and better. I am so grateful!

"Live every day of your life."

2019 Update
The ukulele group went down the tubes several years ago and I have been playing in the LAPD concert band and Swing Band. We have played at the Reagan Library, the L.A. Colliseum, Forest Lawn, and in May we got to go to Washington DC to play. We had VIP seats to a talk on the Capitol lawn where the keynote speaker was the president! It was a once in a lifetime experience!

2019
Well, Rudy & I got married. My new name is Nancy Detgen. In addition we bought a house in Arizona and we will be moving in October. :-)

2020
We LOVE Arizona! No homeless, no graffiti, no traffic, no trash allover the streets, etc. We bought a bigger, newer, much nicer house for HALF of what it costs in California and bought solar and an RV. No more $900 DWP bills! The electric company here owes US money. LOL! It is like a different world than California. I loved the California that I moved to in 1974. That California no longer exists! It is really a shame.

This virus thing is going to bankrupt our country in my opinion, but it has had little effect on us (except my birthday dinner was take out - LOL) It is giving us the opportunity to fix up the house. We go for walks in the evening. Since we are retired we don't have to go to work every day, so we stay home and play our saxes and just enjoy life.

Hi Lynne,
Well, believe it or not, I forgot your birthday! LOL! I just saw your comment to me about our name and birthdate. California is not what it used to be! That is why we left and moved to a senior community outside of Phoenix. Where did you live when you were here? We are in Sun City West. One of my friends retired to a senior community in North Carolina. We love it! My husband says it is like living in a resort.

Thanks Murray!

Thanks Murray! I LOVE being a senior! I don't feel old and I have freedom!

Hi Nancy,
I read your comment and couldn't help but notice that we have the same birthday! I'm March 23 1945! We just left California and now live in Arizona in a senior community. I love it! No trash, no homeless, no graffiti, little traffic and everything is half of what it costs in California! It sounds like you are in a beautiful place in California, though.

Well the latest is that when Rudy retires we are planning to move to Sun City in Arizona - a Del Webb senior community. We visited some friends there a few years ago and loved it.

Also our concert band is going to Washington DC in May to play and we might actually get to meet the president! I've attached a video link to a You Tube video of our band playing at Forest Lawn last Memorial Day

Hi Virginia,
I was looking at another page on our web site and saw a photo of you. You haven't changed a bit! You look exactly like you did in high school. You probably don't remember me, I was quiet and shy, but I do remember you and I just had to let you know when I saw your photos on your page!
