To enjoy life in our retirement…doing the things we did not have time for when working and raising a family.
My wife, Gail, and I both graduated from Penn State University…her major was in the Humanities, mine in Pol Sci. We are both retired. I retired from the National Park Service, Big Bend NP, Tx. Prior to the NPS I worked as the Dallas Regional Supervisory HR Specialist for the FDIC. We have two grown daughters. We are both 65. We have been married 42 years.
Gail is more spiritual than I am….I describe myself as a god fearing atheist. We both believe the Golden Rule and feel we are responsible for helping others less fortunate.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
We have hosted seven times so far and have enjoyed all of them. Opportunity to meet new and very interesting people.
Politics, reading, meeting new people. Gail is into ceramics, drawing and painting. She has her own wheel and kiln. We are both moderate Democrats. We love good humor and are able to laugh at ourselves. Life is too short to take all THAT seriously….
Music, Movies, and Books
"A Confederacy of Dunces”. "Catch-22”, “The Big Burn”
The Big Lebowski, Animal House, Lonesome Dove, The Stranger by Camus. Read all the history I can get my hands on.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
We married 42 years ago and it is still an amazing adventure.
An Amazing observation: Never, ever attempt to open a boxed wine with a sharp pocket-knife..duh…:)
