- 1 - Retirement Again & Joining the American Legion Org. 
I relaxed only a while after retiring from being secretary at the Clinton Elks Lodge, and started looking where I can help and spend my time. I transfered my American Legion membership to Warsaw MO since they seem to be very active with Veterans. 
In 2023 I accepted the Post Adjutant's postion, which again utilizes my experiences at the Elks, keeping records, etc. 

- 2 - Retirement and Joining the Elks Lodge 
Well it does not seem to matter, but here I am in retirement and wondering what is next. Need to find a project or two to keep me busy and decided to join the Clinton Elks Lodge in 2011 which helps. 
In 2013 I started taking pottery classes in Springfield every week. During 2013 I spent time learning how to do clay pottery and setting up to do clay pottery and sculpture at home. I built my own pottery wheel and bought a kiln and on this link you can see some of my work during 2013.  
In 2015 I took the secretary's job at the Elks Lodge which was almost like a full time job but fit nicely for me and my experiences. During these years I learned much, met lots of people and able to fix many problems in the accounting system, bylaws, and other areas. But, after eight years it was time to retire, , again.

Here I go again, off on another adventure.   This time I have accepted a teaching position at Guangxi University of Technology in the city of Liuzhou, Guangxi province, P.R. China.   Then I went to Beihai and taught at a middle school and a Sports University for one term. Having itchy feet, I then went to Guangxi Normal University in Guilin City followed by ZhongShan Universtiy in GuangDong province. I have already enjoyed my time here and have learned more then I have taught.   On these pages I will share many stories and photos about this adventure, including my stories and the stories of my students.
