Joan and I are from Chicago. She lived in Paris from the ages of 2 to 6, while her father was attached to NATO as a member of the US Air Force. She loves escargot. I visited Paris, Brussels and London in the mid 1980's, before I met and married Joan, We both enjoy good food. I work as an accountant for a manufacturing company and Joan is an administrative assistant and office manager for an engineering firm. We recently (6 months ago) became grandparents, and have been enjoying Sundays watching our grandson develop. We bowl together in a mixed (male and female) bowling league. Up to now, our vacations have been limited to the US and Mexico. We like visiting museums and seeing different forms of architechture and historical places. We also enjoy being with and talking to other people.
