After graduation life became an adventure, including some college, lots of travel and just learning to enjoy life. My education has been diversified to say the least attending several colleges and universities a few courses at a time and ending my formal education at Iowa State.
My occupations have been many, with the last 35 years spent in broadcasting
in one form or another. I have many things I love, my wife Chris, my daughter
Paula and my son Shad. I love also love Ames and Iowa. What I am and what I will
be is always grateful to the people and things that have surrounded my life in
this great part of the country we live in. The are a lot of things I've left out
but I'm sure we'll share more as you continue to visit this site.
Having been empty nested for 3 years I'm surprised at how difficult it is to accomodate our daughter who moved back for a couple of weeks during an apartment transition. All of a sudden we are more accountable and she is less. The fact that she just turned 21 has afforded her mor freedom as she is now a fully "legal" adult and any hold that we had on her has evidently melted away. Of course the age old reminder that you're still our child has little effect, luckily we raised a respectful if not somewhat headstrong girl. She works 2 jobs, babysits frequently, carries a full schedule of classes and made the Deans List so I'm not really complaining. I think 2 weeks is survivable and then we share what may be our last family vacation together there we"ll find out what 2 weeks in a car can do to togetherness, I'm sure once that's done her new apartment will become her sanctuary.
