69 and still going

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.


  1. OMG! I think I went hiking with Carolyn when I was in Yellowstone! Ask her if she remembers me? Did she work in the Mammoth EDR summer 2011?
