What are you doing now:
I have been completely retired since 2004. My biggest hobby is that I build and fly electric powered, radio-controlled model planes.
Other Comments:
I lost my wife of 42 years in 2003. Mary Louise Burns and I were married in Big Spring,Texas and had 1 daughter, Cassandra. Being single after 42 yrs. of marriage is still taking time to adjust to. There are good and not so good advantages to being single again but, have decided one wife was enough. At least until I meet my next one. LOL!!!
