I have been around since Herbert Hoover was president. I doubt many members of TBD can say that. I am retired. Very much so. I love to read and am well known at the local library. For me, a library has a feel and presence like no other place. I am also a weekly visitor at the horse track. Yes, I love to play the ponies and am part of a group of dear friends who, between races, debate the issues of the day and hopefully solve many of them.
