I’ve been retired from Shell Oil for two years now. Worked for 4 different “Shell” companies for a total of 36 years after 2+ years as a Lt. in the Army. I was stationed at Pine Bluff Arsenal in Ark. and met MJ in LittleRock when she was a jr. at Little Rock Univ. I ended up with a war bride! She taught school for a few years and was a stay at home mom until ourdaughter went off to college, then she subbed a bit.
Because I was short, slow and little, I couldn’t do any sports at Daggett or Paschal. Remember when I tried for the whole sophomore season to be a pole vaulter? So, I have spend the rest of my life pursuing individual sports, i.e. water skiing, running, cycling, triathlons, climbing three mts. and stuff like that.
I tell people now that my four big decisions every morning are road bike, Mt.. bike, work out or kayak? No choice is too bad. Ha!
We have two grandchildren, a boy and a girl, they will be 5 and 2 this summer. I do a lot of playing with the grandson for sure. He sails with me, scuba dives in the pool with me plus all the usual baseball, biking, tennis and exploring in the woods. Luckily, they are only 55 minutes away.
As you can tell, I play a lot. This is good. I’m not a sit and watch sports in front of the TV kind of guy.
Hope to see you at the June lunch, wherever it is.
