I grew up in Wisconsin, spent 4 years in the U.S. Navy, then worked 28 years as an Air Traffic Controller. I retired on January 1st, 2011 out of Detroit Metro Airport, then I came to visit Florida a year after and never went back!
I grew up with a variety of small animals from finches and goldfish, to cats & dogs. My parents had a kennel and raised Shelties. By the time I retired, I added horses to my lifestyle and we ended up with five at home.
Being happily retired, my days are spent relaxing and exploring our world, in between traveling to airshows around the country. Life is good!
