    What do you do after retiring from 35 years of fulltime teaching Spanish and French? EVERYTHING! All those things I had just a bit of time to do I now have lots more time to do! I'm a part time Adjunct Spanish professor plus I quilt, sew, travel, swim, read, eat chocolate, bike a bit, walk some and then quilt and sew some more. And maybe eat a bit more chocolate.
