Updated 9/14/05, 11/05/2010 (sort of)

As you may have noticed... No real update since my last one 5 years ago.  So I hope to get one going soon ... say by year end 2010. That gives me about 2 months to get it done. As expected there have lots of changes ... older and more grandkids are the big items.

I'm somewhat in retirement at this time so I have a lots of time to spend with our grandkids and fun hobbies. Some of which are: boating (23' SeaRay Weekender, which I service the outdrive), electronics, building the Pennsylvania A3 Switcher Steam Engine by Kozo Hiraoka in 3/4" scale and other odds and ends.
We have two daughters, Stephanie and Michelle; plus two grandkids, Patrick and Mckenna.
Carol and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary last August 2005. We have lived in Camarillo, Calif. since the kids started school. Camarillo is a small town (was anyway) about 60 miles West of Los Angeles (along the 101 freeway).
Carol works part time at a local pre-school as the office manager for the last 29 years. So she also has time to see the grandkids, take care of the house and of course me. She collects Disney pictures, pins and other neat things. A very busy person!


Brian Buddy and Stephanie 7/15/05

Stephanie and Brian bought a house in Anaheim Hills, California (about 90 miles East of us) about a year ago. They looked and looked and finally found what they wanted. It's a very nice home! As with most new homes they have done a lot of re-modeling ... master bedroom and bath and the huge game room. Stephanie works at an accounting firm and has received her CPA certificate in April 2004. It was a long and hard journey, but she made it!! Congratulation Stephanie, job well done! Brian is the owner of a thriving air conditioning company, which keeps him very busy with commercial and residential contracts. He loves all sports, plays softball and cheers on the Eagles and Flyers. Buddy has been part of the family for many years .. loves to eat and demands much attention.





Michelle and family live in Newbury Park, California, just over the hill about 15 minutes away.
Michelle is actively raising her twins Patrick and Mckenna. She takes them on walks, they go to parks to climb and swing, to book stores and other places to see new and fun things. They especially like the Santa Barbara zoo to see the lions, monkeys and all the other animals.



Patrick and Mckenna at their 3 year party

Patrick likes to see big trucks and tires. Mckenna likes her toy telephone (what does that tell you?) and blankets. They get into everything, always looking for new things to see and do ... pushing buttons, pulling on things, opening doors and pointing at whatever they see and asking "What is that?" and "What happened?". Now they are playing games on the computer and climbing over the fence. Quite a pair. Here they are helping each other open their birthday presents.







That's all for now!!
