            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Wapello County, Myron L. Gookin, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Doyle and Tabor, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J.  (10 pages)

            James Olsen appeals the district court’s award of alimony to Deora Olsen.  James Olsen argues the district court improperly calculated both his and Deora’s incomes and improperly awarded Deora alimony of $300 per month for five years and then $250 per month for another five years.  Deora Olsen requests appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the district court’s award of alimony and its calculation of James’s income.  We decline to award Deora appellate attorney fees.
