I am a 55 year old plumber turned designer of engineering systems (plumbing,hvac,electrical,utilities), turned plumber. I am currently in charge of the plumbing systems for four (4) prisons in the state of Wisconsin. I was born and raised in northern Wisconsin and resided there until 1985 at which time I moved to a small community near Appleton WI. I have been married for almost thirty five (35) years, have four adult children, and six grandchildren. I am extremely proud of all four of my kids, and proud of the way they are raising their kids.
I am a part time musician and currently play with a couple of bluegrass bands. I play guitar, mandolin & fiddle and sing high tenor. One of my sons and I are in the process of starting our own band. We are finding it extremely hard to find musicians that meet our requirements.
Growing up in the northwoods gave me a great love of hunting, fishing, & trapping which my sons have also taken to. We are able to spend a great deal of time in the woods or on the water. Myself and both sons have all trained amazing bird dogs and use them extensively to hunt ducks,grouse and pheasant. There is not a day goes by that both sons and both daughters don't either call me or stop by for a visit. I am finally starting to understand how awesome this is. Especially after listening to many sad stories from others regarding their ungrateful kids.
I ended up on this site due to my daily reading of the SuboxDocs blog and clicking through his website.
I could go on for hours but I think anyone who may read this gets the basics of my life.
Thanks for sharing, thanks for reading.
