Does your club the Senior Women´s Basketball Association have any other social events or activities they host? How busy does it keep you?
The SWBA has an annual potluck dinner, a picnic and a Christmas party. They also offer coaching clinics, attend local college womens’ basketball games and sometimes appear as halftime entertainment at those games. Three of our local Universities have given us clinics with their college teams. One of our members, Laurie Byrd, also puts on a 2 or 3 day basketball camp for seniors.
What else do you do? I´m sure that there´s more to Marjorie than basketball!
I tutor English as a second language for teenagers in Tijuana (our sister city in Mexico), foster kittens for the humane society, host foreign students coming to UCSD, travel, make photography books from my travels and take care of my 2 cats and dog. I am a widow but have 4 wonderful step children and 6 grandchildren that I see often.
What´s it like living in San Diego? Not much snow shovelling to contend with I assume.
It is paradise! Wonderful weather, unlimited outdoor and other sports activities, access to the ocean, mountains and desert, opportunities for activities at the various universities and cultural events, great zoo, etc, etc.
You have probably ticked off a lot of things off your bucket list – what did you enjoy doing the most?
All of the above.
And finally, what´s still on your bucket list? Where can we expect to see you next?
I’ve visited most of the places I want to visit internationally, now I’ll start looking more at North America.
