 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

At 70 years old, I decided to retire. Globe Trotting was getting tougher and tougher. I have settled down in Austin and work with the various fraternal organizations I belong to. Masonic, Shriners, and Sojourners. More than enough to keep me active. I am also searching for my birth parents and biological relatives. I have submitted DNA to 3 databases and have just started the detective work.
