I am married with two adult children. I have just recently retired and my wife Diane retired last year. We live in Maryland and we enjoy doing things with our grandchildren. We do some gardening in our yard, and we are active in our church, finding ways to assist the needy. My wife enjoys knitting, and I enjoy science. We like to cook, although Diane takes the lead in that and I do more short order stuff. We have had the chance to travel to some national parks which we have we enjoyed very much. We have previously adopted two wire Fox terriers through a dog rescue organization. I enjoy walking outdoors.
