I retired two years ago and moved back to the Mobile Bay area where I grew up. Retirement was great and the paddling of my kayaks, my passion, was fantastic. Neither my wife, Christine, or I have been happier. We are with family and old friends and that is something to hang your hat on. I still miss my old Peace Corps colleagues. If you are ever in the Mobile, AL area, or just want to come, let me know and there will be a light on the door for you.

I was diagnosed with a lung cancer in January 07. Did the surgery and chemo bit and now things are as back to normal as they can get. Am on oxygen 24-7 but that is just a barrier I must jump all day and night. The docs have not found any evidence of the cancer so I may indeed be one of the lucky ones.

Used my recovery time to write a book about my dad, who was on the first ship sank by the u-boats in the Gulf of Mexico, my experiences as a child until I went into the Army and the value system I developed from somewhere. It was done primarily for my kids and grendchildren but I am trying to improve it and see if there is a market.

One of the things I miss from Atlanta is large number in the Ethiopian community. In many respects I learned more Amharic there than I did in country.
