Joined 5 years ago from Westfield




Gene Munson Barry:

I have been living in my present home for approximately the last 42 years. And grew up a half mile south of my present home, where I lived with my parents, two sisters and two other brothers. Yes that made a family of 7.

My two sisters had bedrooms on the main floor as well did my parents. Our father along with his three brothers move an cottage from one location on the property to it's present locatin, where my uncle (on my mothers side) whom had a bulldozer had dug a basement and my father and his brothers had poured concrete walls to make a basement. I vaguely remember laying in my crib with my twin sister looking up to where the stairs were going to be to access the main floor. My father had constructed a recoration room equipped with a fire place and all.

My younger brother and I shared the recoration room, my older brother had another portion of the basement as his room. Of course this was a plus during the hot summers.

Eventually I moved on to college where I was studying for Food processing. Well after I had a year in good ol uncle sam decided to Draft me. Of course I was sort of expecting that because the previous year they had stopped allowing college permitts. The year that I was in college I half expected to be drafted because my lottery number was only 39.

After I was dfafted again good ol uncle sam decided to stop the Draft..... Geeze "if it weren't for bad luck I wouldn't have any luck at all"

So anyhow after spending 2 years with uncle sam in germany, (which I enjoyed Germany when I could get leave and weekends).

I had the opportunity to visit many european countries while there, Austria, France, Hollandbeing a few.

After serving my 2 years I moved to my home town where I married and purchased a home. My present home, and started working at a local Grape Juice factory where I was employed for 33 years.

I eventually divorced my first wife, to remary eventually to my present wonderful wife. She had built 8 web sites and was selling safes.

I was eventually let off my job at the grape juice company, they said my job was a victum of cutbacks, but I feel was bogus.

Anyhow I eventually joined my wife designing sites and selling safes.

As the economy went into the slump the business of selling safes declined, and I eventually hired on at The Home Depot. That was a part time job, which I now unemployed.

We are hoping that doing the hubs that we can eventually begin making money with.
