About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To show others that the world is an absolutely wonderful place, full of great people!

ABOUT ME

Married for 40+ years, 3 grown kids. Have hosted many high school foreign exchange students; 21 years military (retired),mostly Army Reserves, (Vietnam and Gulf War veteran) Worked 10 years in a factory; was self-employed for 8+ years; and worked for a major corporation. Open, exploring, lots of energy, healthy, liberal - am a Unitarian Universalist! Great family, too few friends in the U.S.
As of 10 March 2015 - we currently have a house guest. Not sure when he is leaving yet!
PHILOSOPHY

You go through life once - this isn't a dress rehersal!
I was created to do more than take care of myself and my family!I want to make this world a better place than I found it! Think of retirement (someday) as being life like the TV series "Golden Girls" - independent, but with others. I believe ANTHING is possible if one is willing to do what it takes!! Maybe live in U.S. for 6 months each year, and somewhere else for 6 months. Would like to swap houses with others, someday!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Has always been exceptional, whether hosting or being hosted.

Interests

Biking and racquetball!! Discussing politics, religion, sexuality - nothing is off limits! Traveling - have seen only a small part of the world - 18 countries so far! Have burning desire to set up my own business - again!

Music, Movies & Books

Ray likes tear jerkers - movies. Most any kind of music. Read mostly non-fiction, though he read the Alexander McCall Smith's series, "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency".
Enjoys non-fiction books on Africa, and any other non-fiction. Seem to be always reading some sort of book, magazine, or newspaper. Lately, am reading about self employment! Judy reads a fair amount of fiction!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Ray did 2 years in Peace Corps at 55 years old - and fell in love with Botswana and the people!! Judy and the grown children all got a chance to visit Botswana!
