Journal #7

Last week was wonderful – great strides in research and an excellent interview with Don Hess. I also indexed for Laura Murray and found the couple she interviewed most interesting and asked them several questions on my own research topic, which I will most likely include in my final report.

Tomorrow I have my final interview with a couple at the Landing, Dr. and Mrs. Fletcher. I am looking forward to discussing independent living communities on a local (and national) context and their opinions on being an independent retiree in Williamsburg.
