Today is my newest roommate’s 69th birthday. She hopes to continue working here for another year. Now how many of us still plan on working when we get to 69-70 years old? She says that she would get to bored to retire. She has mentioned that she might want to work a Summer season at Mt. Rushmore because she has grandkids living nearby there.

Carolyn is from Texas, but worked a Summer season in Yellowstone before coming to Death Valley. She takes care of the EDR here. Some of the F & B managers were trying to surprise her by buying her a carrot cake (her favorite) ahead of time, but she surprised us when she made her own cake. She knew nothing about the carrot cake until this morning.
