MY TESTIMONY

PART FIVE



I finished my university education and taught a year of sixth grade before deciding to emigrate back to the United States in 1979. I received my citizenship in 1984 while I was working as an assistant to a college departmental director in Florida. After the college position, I traveled and worked in numerous positions doing social work with either non-profit or religious agencies around the country.

In between times, I worked as a senior camp counselor in Florida, Georgia, and Maryland and also traveled around by bicycle. During the warm months of eighty-six, eighty-seven, and
eighty-eight , I took a 16,500 mile basically around the perimeter of the country looping through Virginia Beach, Virginia and ending in San Antonio, Texas. After finishing up that trip, I moved up to the Pacific NW where I worked as a bookkeeper for Catholic Social Service agency and was also on the Board of Directors and Treasurer of a thirteen church ecumenical center.

In 1992, I traveled again across the country by bicycle from Spokane, Washington to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. What was so unusual about this trip was that I had a traveling companion. Nestled inside a small cage in the main pocket of my handlebar bag was a two-year old Teddy Bear Hamster named Schroeder. (You can read more about him and read a newspaper on Schroeder's own page found on the site index).

Schroeder survived the trip quite nicely and also the Greyhound Bus trip back to Spokane. I enjoyed having him along because he brought me a lot of laughter from the people we had met along the way. He passed away about three months after I had moved to Portland, Oregon where I had taken a position with the St. Vincent DePaul Society there.

(I just had to include this for a little fun. When I saw this on another site, it reminded me of Schroeder and all the other fur-balls that I've had.)
