 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
     Retired.  I spend my summers  in northern Minnesota. We have a camper at Battle Lake, Mn. Our winters are spent at home in St. Peter, Mn.  We're enjoying our time at the camper with a lot of fishing. I have a Black lab-border collie dog that takes up a lot of my time. She's my constant companion. When we're home in the winter i do a lot of small wood working projects. I also enjoy birds and feed them a lot.
