Retired banker. First love is my wife, and second love is genealogy (my wife may not agree with this order)and then history. I'm trying to identify and prove as many Rev. War Patriots to which I am related; so far about 37. The fun is the chase.
I have always found cemeteries fascinating; so much history. When you view a headstone, you wonder what the person was like? Make the National Cemetery at Arlington, VA, one of the 100 places you see before you die.
Also, we like to travel in our motorhome and make short trips, for lunch or coffee, in my 65 Mustang convertable.
We live in, what some believe, is one of the nicest places in California; the Central Coast, San Luis Obispo south to Santa Maria. The Climate is always mild, and with the exception of an occassional earthquake, an easy place to live.
Live a little, laugh a lot, life is good.
