Sooo...seeking and open to meeting and connecting...!
Let's see...day job stuff...certainly rewarding, managing a large environmental staff for an aviation/space concern. No two days let alone two hours alike, lots of challenges & interesting issues to work & some fascinating complex projects with a fair bit of travel...and lots of personal time to take off to enjoy time away...!
Grew up as an "airforce brat" travelling the world, never lost the travel bug and happy to travel for fun (taking side-trips whenever possible) & oh yes...for work to scope out travel for fun ! Have loved being an expat multiple times...and bi-coastal in this country for 9 years...(gulf & big blue (pacific)). Enjoy and love my work, fulfilling & rewarding.

called...Saturday, where a festival of visual & auditory delights abound...and a cornucopia of sweet, aromatic & delicious smells wafting thru the air...and beautiful acoustic & electric sounds emanate from up & down the street where both individuals & small bands play renditions of both the latest & the greatest olde tunes for the bystanders & passing crowds while still other free spirits dance to the tunes...
oops...that's all the time we have this week boys and girls...tune in again same time, same channel, next week.....when I & Patches, the one-eyed coyote, and his 3 legged brother, Tripod, trek off on yet another lil' episodic adventure to fabulous.....
