The care center staff says this eighty-two year old gentleman loves to tell stories. He’s had a very active life and many interesting experiences to talk about. He grew up on a farm and served in the United States Air Force. After his military service he spent some years as a bull rider on the rodeo circuit. When that career ended he made a living as a bass player in various musical groups. Now he pursues less active hobbies such as reading western novels, watching television and visiting with other care center residents. Not surprisingly, he has requested a western style shirt for one of his Christmas gifts. He would also like a sweatsuit, a coat with a hood, handkerchiefs, soft cookies, and hygiene products.
