 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Enjoying retirement ...as in no job, no boss, no clock, no hurry, don't want to, can't make me type of attitudes (with pun intended). Overall I enjoy babysitting our grandchildren, traveling here and there, attending church services, family outings, meeting new while keeping old friends, and communing with nature while doing my walking exercise.
   
Other Comments:
To all my colleagues at TWS and all my friends who happen to drop by to look at my narratives out of curiosity, amuse yourself. Welcome to my world.  Thanks to the US Navy that I chose and spent twenty-two years of my life. Take a peek on what life has taken me throughout the years up to present. It has been one roller-coaster ride but an unforgettable and memorable experience.

When I was young I learned that our life is a gift from God, and what we do with that life is our gift to God.  We only live once.  So to all my TWS shipmates, "May the sun always shine on your windowpane."
