His name is Don Hurst. He’s a retired United Methodist Pastor, who has served  churches in Delaware and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. He says that all of his pastorates were interesting, but two of the most interesting were Immanuel located in the Mid-Atlantic’s Seafood capital of Maryland’s Crisfield and Wesley located in State Capital of Delaware in Dover. He’ll probably post interesting stories from these communities.

His wife, Muff, a retired operating room nurse was kind enough to move with him and work in hospitals near wherever they lived. Although, they now live at Jenner’s Pond, a Continuing Care Community in PA, they have continued to maintain vital friends in the  churches and communities where they once lived.

They try to keep up with their three grown children’s children, but it isn’t easy because all four of the grandchildren are in various stages of college, graduate work, marriage and employment. Fortunately,  all their family believes in education and serving the needs of people in their various professions.

For vacations they’ve traveled with their children over the United States and when the children became youth they started venturing out on their own by taking tourists and sailors on bus and sailing trips around the world. He was certified as a Captain to take people sailing on 100 ton sail boats. The sailing ventures of the sailing group is continuing to this day even without their participation.

Currently, Muff volunteers at Elkton’s Union Hospital’s  Breast Health Center and he volunteers at the Port of Wilmington’s Seafarer’s Center. Both he and his wife maintain contact with vital friends, and are involved in numerous sports and learning activities and events where they currently live, as well as at a healthy nearby church and in the beautiful Southern Chester County village of Jennersville in PA.  He plays pool, Muff knits, and they are both prolific readers and he’s a writer.

As time goes by and he becomes more familiar with using Don’s Blog, he will probably post at least monthly blogs. He encourages readers to make comments, ask questions, express concerns and make suggestions. No sales pitches please. We all get too many of those.
