Comments:

After finding that the high school experience had not prepared me for college, I came back to Hampton and attended the Apprentice School at the shipyard. During this time I married my wife, Julie. I worked for a longtime at the Bendix/Allied-Signal/Siemens plant in Newport News. We lived out on Gwynn's Island until I retired the end of 2000 and moved to our second home in Marathon, FL. But needing to help my parents initiated a move back to Tidewater where we lived in Williamsburg until 2008 when we moved to Athens, GA, bringing my dad closer to my brother, Carl, who is an author living in the Atlanta area. After my father passed away, and wanting to go back to Florida, we moved to Dunedin, FL. A small city (town) just north of Clearwater in the Tampa Bay area. We spend our time learning the geology, flora, and fauna of this part of the world so we are in the woods a lot.

Automated message suggested I update my profile. But I am stuck in a rut enjoying the great weather down here in the Tampa Bay area. Dunedin is a town that makes many top lists of places to live out your retirement. So that is what we are doing. Not much traveling anymore, NOLA or Atlanta is about as far afield that we go. We live the same basic life of leisure that our classes had during the summers hanging out at Buckroe Beach, Foxhill/Grandview area, the military bases, Gosnold's Hope park, etc. Life has been very good to Julie and I and we are still having a blast.

Cool beard. I can't grow one. Glad to read what you have been doing all these years. Enjoy your retirement.
