I am a military veteran (USN) who is extremely active in the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). I am also a musician who plays guitar and sings. I live for a great, engaging conversation with new people and new friends; it enriches me as a person.
I have been married for roughly the past 25 years to a wonderfully tolerant woman (who puts up with my guitar practice). I have two grown children as well.
I love language, and foreign languages as well. I have a penchant for language acquisition, though it usually atrophies after I lose contact with those who would help my fluency grow.
My wife and I pride ourselves on being low-impact guests. We believe in cleaning up our own messes and usually take a little bit of the load off our hosts. It makes the stay less stressful for everyone, right?
I am certain to add more as I find what others like to learn about each other here, and I look forward to meeting those of you with whom I will stay.
