Some parts of this book detail the challenges we had regarding our desire to marry; most of it details what happened thereafter. At the end of the book, there will be an update. As was mentioned earlier, our number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren is growing like a Californian wildfire. My wife and I are very proud of what we accomplished because we strongly believe that family is everything. In addition to telling my students about family, I also tell them to get a good education because it will open doors for them. I suggest that they find a job they love and then they will never have to work for a living. In 1979, that is exactly what I did as I started teaching at Erie Community College (ECC), and four months later, I started teaching at Niagara University (NU). Now in December 2017, I am thrilled to say that I still teach at both schools and could not be happier. In addition, I later obtained a course at the south campus of ECC, which means I am currently teaching at three different locations. At NU, I am told I have a job for life, and I hope the same is true at ECC. It is a blessing to work with college students, and I love everyone I work with. No doubt there are many college professors who feel exactly the same way. The starting pay can be very low, but every time there is a vacancy, hundreds of well-educated applicants quickly seek to replace them. Those who are lucky like I always have been will reap rewards that are far more important than money. This is my story, and I hope you enjoy it.
