Oldest of 5 boys. US Army veteran, 72'-75. Retired police officer. Married 43 yrs to a fellow veteran, who I met in the Army while stationed in Germany. I'm a certified barbecue judge with the Kansas City BBQ Association..I'm a member of our local Elks lodge. I've done volunteer work with meals on wheels and life elder care for several years. My wife Cindy, was a school teacher for a spell, now she's getting ready to retire from a local police department where she's worked as a community service officer for the past 22 years. I enjoy golfing, billiards, photography, fishing and boating. Now, I'm looking forward to traveling around our beautiful country, seeing new places and meeting new folks. We just purchased our first RV, it's a 35' Monaco class A gasser. Though it's used, it's in excellent shape with low miles and lots of bells and whistles. Our only child, Kelly, lives in San Francisco. Now we're both ready to take time and smell the roses.
Being a certified BBQ judge the last 4 yrs has enabled to hone my skills when it comes to smoking or grilling most any kind of meat. I also make some pretty good homemade jerky from beef or wild game. I pretty much know a little bit about a lot of things. Always willing to roll up my sleeves and lend a helping hand.
Our little Miniature Pinscher "Coco", is s wonderful and social little guy. Smart, friendly and he gets along pretty well with other dogs. He weighs about 10 lbs. We will normally be traveling with him. He's extremely low maintenance and gets along just fine with little kids.
Haven't been out yet so we can't yet determine which places we prefer.
Born in Fresno, raised in San Jose, and have lived in Union City, Ca. for the last 38 yrs. Cindy is from Lansing,Mi.
