"I lived right next to the frog pond when I was little. I lived there for a lot of years and have lots of pictures of the frog pond.I was always scared when we would come home from anywhere or pull into the church parking lot when the pond was high…"
I have been fortunate enough to live in some interesting places. I joined the Air Force not long after High School and was stationed in Syracuse, New York, Sembach, Germany and Panama City, Florida... In the Air Force I was an Aerospace Controller assigned to the North East and South East North American RADAR (NORAD) Control Centers. In Germany, I spent 3 years in a Mobile RADAR unit assigned to the Tactical Air Command.
After the Air Force I worked for the Federal Aviation Administration at Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida as an Air Traffic Assistant from 89 to 94 and really enjoyed living in South Florida.. in 94 Clinton downsized the Federal Government and my career field was elliminated from the Tower and I came back home.
I opened a Family Fun Center at Century Plaza in 2000 called Tropical Golf and one at the Eastwood Festival Center in the same year called Fun Factory. One of the first Birthday parties that was held at Tropical Golf was for Lisa Cleary's kid..
In 2005 I went back to work for the Federal Government in the Department of Homeland Security. I am currently stationed at the Birmingham Airport as a Supervisor on the PM shift..
I have been divorced since 1991 and have one special pup, named Shakey.... I hope this site continues to grow, Lee has done an outstanding job with the website.. and Its so good to hear so many familiar stories and see so many old friends again...
Favorite TV Shows:
Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis and Lost are my favorites now, but I do miss the X - Files and Firefly.
