About Me
I'm a retired high school teacher of Spanish. I grew up on an Iowa farm, but have lived in Palo Alto for the last 35 years. I love to travel in the US and abroad, to bicycle, canoe, hike and backpack, to garden, read, and dance. I am renting my home out while I live in a cottage behind it. I do all the gardening: vegetables, a small fruit orchard, and lots of flowers.
