 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Retired in Kitsap County near Seattle. Writing music, editing DVD's for the Navy Musicians Association Archives, playing in three different bands and playing the house husband role for Diane who is teaching school (orchestra) in the local public school system. Fixing up and spending time at our cabin in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains. Trying to keep up with "where is Annie this time!" Enjoying life with my beautiful wife. Going to Mariners games. Hanging out with Tex Waldron at his jazz club "Tula's" in Seattle. And that just about covers it!
