Give brief explanation of your life for the last 50 years.
(ie special trips, careers, places you have lived, any special events in your life or your families life.
(AN AHA MOMENT!!!!!!!!)

There are so many tells of living in the North, that I would have to write a book. When I first got there, I couldn't believe there was no running water or paved streets. I didn't think there was anyone in the world who didn't have either of them.
Frank worked in the Oil Industry from the bottom up. All the wells were drilled in the middle of nowhere, so the work shift was three week at work and two and a half days off. When he moved up to consulting it wasn't much better because he was boss, who had to be there all the time. When finally owned own business, he worked from the office and I ran the office and did the bookkeeping.
He did several tours of working overseas, Turkey, Algeria, Angola and Itlay, on which I went along.
The man, who he did a lot of work for, got into Gold Mining in the Yukon. We spent several summers, with ventures in the Yukon.
We had decided to retire in Virginia. So we built a house, that I designed in Lake of the Woods out side of Fredericksburg. But he psssed away before we got to move there. I kept it for a few years and decided it was to big for me to look after when I got old. I now live in a plus 55 commuity in Fredericksburg. I do still have a rented apartment in Vancouver for when I go back to see my grandchildren. That is it to date and life is good.
