Now the hard one. Tell us what we need to know…50 years in the space below:

After graduating HHS at the age of 17, I left Hicksville and never looked back.  I attended college in upstate NY.  From NY, I moved to Pasadena , Texas and attended Texas Chiropractic College .  I left Texas with a chiropractic degree, a wife, and a beautiful daughter. 

Our family relocated to Newport , Rhode Island , where I practiced chiropractic for 6 years, and we had a second daughter.  Our next stop was Orlando , Florida , where I practiced chiropractic for another 30 years.

Upon retirement, we relocated to Golden, Colorado . 

We are still happily married after 38 years.  One daughter lives close by in the mountains of Colorado , and my other daughter lives in California .  We are grandparents of a set of twins.

I have a sister living in Syosset, which brings me back to Hicksville every now and then.
