Born in Georgia, raised in a Army family moving around a lot, severed in the Navy for 4 years, came to Atlanta when I got out of the Navy in 1971.
I do need to point out that I am a smoker, I have tried to quit trying the gum, patch, and vapor smokes. I am a polite smoker.
I live in a 1915 Craftsman home, in a older historic neighborhood in College Park, since 1987 and love it here. I'm a member of the College Park Arts Council, Woodworking Guild of Georgia, the Furniture society, Historic College Park Neighborhood Asso. and a Board member of the Historic College Park Arts Festival.
I have a Daughter and Son who are both grown and live on their own.
I find that I'm content working with both my mind and hands, I guess that's why I find creating wooden furniture satisfying. If you'd like to see some of my furniture www.outyonder.net . I worked in the remodeling industry for 10 years and now self employed building custom wood working since 1995.
Interests : Spending time with my Family and Friends, Gardening, Art Galleries, Museums, Acoustic Music , Big Band, etc., Plays, and watching a good Movie, Dancing (truth be told I'm not a good dancer but enjoy it just the same)
I like to spend more time in the mountains, hiking, white water canoeing (I haven't done in a while) There is something spiritual about being in the mountains.
I don't have a set Religion, but feel close to a God when I'm out in Nature, sitting on top of a mountain, or look out over the ocean, working in my garden.
Jennie is my yellow lab she about 15 yrs old and a good friend. I have a new puppy Maggie May.
Shade gardening, I have a one ac. landscaped yard.
I treat people with the same respect as they treat me
I'm a good listener
Working with my hands on most things.
TV - I decided the TV was on way too much and was mostly background noise, and I'd rather listen to music., or NPR some one once said there is three types of music I don't understand Opera, rap, and yodeling.
I was brought up on Southern Cooking, but will try most anything. I can cook a little to get by on.
Enjoying life and people around me
Peace of mind
May add more later!
