I love to barbecue! Besides that I enjoy prospecting, gardening, and home improvement. I love the categories at HubPages because it is so easy to find stuff I want to read.

After 66 years on this planet, there isn't a whole lot I haven't seen. Since retiring, I find myself wanting more quiet time and moments to relax. I guess that is age? When I am looking for gold on my club's claims (placer flake gold) I am enjoying the outdoors in Arizona. That's the big treasure, being outdoors. The gold flake I might find is actually secondary. But it also gives me a chance to meet great people. My wife is an enthusiast, also.

Recently I took up article writing - an extension of my photography. I love to take my coolpix camera out and shoot photos of what I see. It is so convenient to just put in your pocket.

When I was a 19 year old kid, I joined the Navy. I still have a soft spot for it in my heart. Ships are marvelous creations, and the sea is a wonderful place to be.

My most prized accomplishments are my two daughters. Both are in their 20's and doing well. I love to visit them and both have given me special gifts. Now I have two granddaughters and one grandson! Everybody should have grandchildren!

Since my wife and I are budgeting like most of the rest of you, we have joined a program in the urban Phoenix, Arizona area called "Urban Anglers". We love to fish, but with gas at its current prices, long trips to lakes in northern Arizona just aren't in the cards. But, fortunately many of the pond and lake parks associated with metro area of Phoenix stock with mainly catfish and trout. We can travel 45 minutes to a lake and enjoy the outdoors and the lure of the lure! My wife is a much better fisherperson than I am.

Well, I guess this is enough about me for now. I will divulge more with my hubs. Best wishes to all of you. You have a great place to be!
