Background: INTRODUCTION: Mr. and Mrs. Ford are staying at the home of oilman Darius Keaton in Monterrey, California while they decide on their future. Monterrey is a quiet and secluded area making the job of the secret service agents who still guard the former President a little easier. The press has been told the Ford are simply relaxing. The former President goes out each day to play golf and he says that at this point he really doesn't miss the role of President. Mr. Ford acknowledges that during this past week there has been a drastic change of pace in his life, but he says that after 28- years in politics he's enjoying it. Asked if he had a time in mind at which he would get back into the political scene, Mr. Ford told reporters he had no specific time, but down the road maybe. The Fords plan to leave California for Houston Thursday for a football dinner. Then to Palm Springs where they plan to live six months a year and in Vail, Colorado for the other six months. The former President also plans to spent time on college campuses.
