Sixty-One Years Today

“We aren’t married yet so you can’t make me.”

Peggy and I ran out of the First Baptist Church in Temple, and started a journey of exploration and discovery that continues at a reduced pace even today. Locations where we’ve lived include Panama City, FL, Belleville, IL, San Antonio, TX, Bitburg, Germany, Phoenix, AZ, Lubbock, TX, and Santa Fe.
Our major accomplishments are two daughters, seven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
Not bad for a first marriage, doncha think?
