HI TO ALL OF YOU.
I STILL LIVE IN  AMES.  MUCH LESS GLAMOROUS SOME OF  YOU, HOWEVER I LOVE IT HERE AND NO PLACE ELSE COULD BE HOME FOR ME.
I HAVE BEEN MARRIED GOING ON 31 YEARS TO HOWARD TROXEL. WE HAVE FOUR CHILDREN.  TWO THAT ARE GROWN AND OUT OF THE HOUSE  AND BECAUSE WE WERE SO YOUNG WHEN WE GOT MARRIED WE HAD TIME FOR A SECOND FAMILY  AND HAD TWO MORE OF WHICH ARE STILL BEING RAISED.  I'M STILL DOING THE NORMAL THINGS ONE  DOES AT OUR AGE;  WORK, WORK  AND STARTING TO FIND I MAY GET MY LIFE BACK AFTER RAISING KIDS FOR 30  YEARS.  NOW I HAVE TO REMEMBER JUST  EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS I DID FOR ENJOYMENT.
MY HUSBAND JOINED THE  ELKS CLUB A FEW YEARS AGO.  HE HAS  BECOME AN OFFICER NOW AND WILL BE THE EXALTED RULER NEXT YEAR.  THAT HAS ADDED A MUCH NEEDED  DIVERSION.
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO  SEEING AND TALKING TO EVERYONE.
CARLA  TROXEL
