Sam (formerly Bill) Autrey (BS '54)

Sylvia and I have recently moved into Capriana, a senior retirement facility in Brea, CA with 79 apartments and currently 105 residents - 74 women and 31 men.   We don't have to cook, or clean, or mow, or plant, or weed, or otherwise take care of anything except ourselves.  The meals are very good, and there are lots of local activities plus transportation to off campus activities.  I would guess the average age of the residents to be in the late eighties.  There are not a lot of active golfers, team ball players, or even swimmers.  We mostly breathe in and out a lot, read, and watch movies or TV.  And talk.  We talk a lot about everything.
