Gloria Nelson...the early years

2014 Reunion News:

In the last 50 years since high school, I have worked for and worked as the following:

In my "other life" (as I call it), I worked as a dental hygienist for 10 years (1968-1978).

In the meantime-in 1972-Dennis and I started our business, Wheel Sport Bicycle and Canoe Shop, in Spokane, WA.

After selling our business in '86, I worked a short time for Cycles Composite (Kestrel bicycles).

Through the years I've traveled to a variety of countries with friends-taking my dear mother when possible.

Participating in the lives of our nieces and nephew has also been fun. This May took me to Germany for the baptism of our new, little grandnephew.

I don't feel retired as I'm always doing something-working on a project, volunteering or keeping up with Dennis! Being self-employed the majority of our lives, things just keep going. Life is good and we feel blessed, but sometimes I look forward to just reading and relaxing.
