Suffet BS: Last day of work! (61* d) RE: BS: Last day of work! 14 Mar 11


Sandra,

I have been so busy since retiring that I cannot figure out how I ever found the time to go to work. :-)

My wife Marilyn and I spend much of our time with music-related activities. For example, both of us serve on the board of directors of the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club (Folk Music Society of New York, Inc.), and we are part of the volunteer collective that runs the Peoples' Voice Cafe. Until very recently, we also were members of the steering committee (board of directors) of the People's Music Network. Although we chose not to stand for re-election, we are still very active members of that organization.

In addition, I produce the annual Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash, a multi-performer round robin concert. If that's not enough, I also perform about a dozen times a year, usually with my friend Anne Price, but sometimes on my own. I also arrange many of Anne's bookings and handle some of her publicity.

As far as non-musical activities go, Marilyn and I do a lot of walking, mostly through the less known parts of the New York City boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn we live in Queens but sometimes we cross a bridge into Manhattan and a couple of times we have crossed another bridge into the Bronx. (There is no way for us to reach New York's fifth borough, Staten Island, on foot.)

Finally, I spend time collecting and exhibiting United States postal history. Postal history is a branch of philately, and it is very much related stamp collecting. However, you leave the stamps on the original covers (envelopes) or cards with all the addresses, postmarks, and other markings intact. That way it is possible to study the rates, routes, and how the mail was processed.

Oh, dear! I fear I have rambled on much longer than I had intended. :-)

--- Steve
