What are you doing now:
What ever I want to, when ever I want to. I am the president of the Heritage Pines Pocket Billiard League, composed of 75 members and and president of the Rolling Green Village Homeowners Association of 33 homes. Between those two, my woodworking hobby, golfing, deepsea fishing, going on pleasure cruises a couple times a year, and going to Ohio for two weeks in the summer to visit family and friends, I keep awful damn busy.
