My wife Jude passed away in 2013. I have not been able to keep an engineering job. There seems to be little need for environmental project engineers in the US at the moment. I married again, moved to Lawton Oklahoma, and started working for the Salvation Army. Ironic perhaps because we are not religious, and the Salvation Army is a church. Still, the line for the nightly soup kitchen is increasing. Our women's shelter is nearly full. Last year, only a few women stayed there. The men's shelter is about the same. Lots of fear about President Trump and the likelihood of war. We live next to a huge artillery base named Fort Sill. No unusual activity there yet.

At that time the reproduction Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria were in the harbor. Later, during 2000, I visited them again when I was working in Corpus Christi in the US. Nina was in the harbor, while Pinta and Santa Maria were on the grounds of the museum complex.
