Donna: Three. One is driving truck; you have to have a college education to drive a truck anymore. He drove for Savage; Russell is 55 or 56, (born in 1948). He lives in Huntington and he’s working for the county right now. He retired once, but he got bored so he went back to work. He had worked for Savage for 20 years so he had his retirement. My daughter does blueprints for bathrooms and kitchens in Denver. She’s a designer for bathrooms and kitchens and she has a job for one of our friends where they do all the decorating for the malls in Denver. She is a very busy girl.
