In January I began studying real estate in earnest in preparation for my post-retirement career. We listed the land for sale, but the economy, especially real estate, is down; so, the chances of its selling are poor. I registered our PINC Property Investment Company LLC
with the state so that we can transfer the house title into it.

I started working at the Post Office in Salt Lake City on 7 September 1971, while I was still getting used to new contact lenses. I worked in the Parcel Post Annex by the railroad tracks. I learned quite a few un-required schemes, did my job well, especially as a caller on the truck unloading belt, on the parcel post carousel distribution, and as an occasional expediter, and earned a quality step increase.

Ken and I flew to Akron in August 1990 to attend Mom’s funeral. Mel and Kathy did a fine job of handling all the arrangements. I gave him $500, in hopes that it was an appropriate amount to help with his expenses. We renewed acquaintances with many relatives, especially enjoying Aunt Peggy, as usual, and Aunt Floy Rollyson Hilbert.
At the first of June 1971 I packed up all my goods, departed the army and headed west for BYU. I located a private apartment and began job searching, part of which included taking the postal test. I enrolled in BYU in civil engineering, but changed to building construction a year or two later. Lon Wallace was my primary instructor; he was a good teacher.
