  We have been married 46 years this Oct. We have a daughter who lives in Houston, Texas. We have two sons. One lives in Oceanside and our youngest lives in Hemet. We are verylucky to have three great grandkids. Two granddaughters and one grandson. We also have two Great-Grandchildren, one boy and one girl.
  Now that is the important information.......... Now for the not so
 Les retired from Rion Sash and Door Company in Downey in 1998. Worked there30 plus years. We moved to Hemet in 1999 after living in Rowland Heights for 40 years.
 We have always spent lots of time in the Sierras camping, fishing etc with
our children and grandchildren along with lots of other family members and
friends. We still do this but for the last ten years we have had a RV. We
travel frequently, have been to Alaska and Canada and this year we are going
to the East Coast and will be gone for two months. Our objective is to get
out of Hemet when it gets HOT. And it gets HOT in Hemet.
 Les does lots of fishing both fresh water and ocean. We have a large garden
(mostly my work) and just enjoy our retirement.
 I am not from South Gate. We have this standing joke in our family. Les
was from the other side of the tracks. I was raised in Downey and we Downey
girls stayed away from those South Gate boys...Ha Ha 46 years later here we
