My Interests

I have a wide variety of interests, and I don’t always get to do them all, but some that I do frequently are represented below. I am an amateur musician and I have a regular group of people with whom I play music. They don’t all live in the same place, so I have to travel, which I also enjoy! I like to build ( I built my own house, now building one for the adult children), so it occupies some of my time. When you have more than 10 acres of land, you get to enjoy ATV riding, hiking, and trail building. Evenings are usually spent enjoying movies and television with my wife.
