   My wife is working part time at the Anderson Campus of Tri-County Technical College
   Jennifer, my baby girl, is now taking over Publix Grocery in Greenville, handling many jobs, but doing Event Planning for the general area. [Why does my baby girl who works for a grocery store need to take my Captain Crunch and other items while visiting? :-) ]. She did comment that we didn't have "any food" (i.e., GOOD food, snack food) in the house on a recent visit. Guess we're bad parents....

Other Interests:

My sourdough is on hiatus at present. I let my old cultrue die a while back, started a new one that was a little different but didn't like it quite as much. I'll probably get someone to push me back to this before long. Amateur Rock-Hound -
Model ship building

Through a series of coincidences, my doing some wood carving for my ship modeling hobby has pretty much turned into my primary hobby these days. I'm learning Swiss chip carving and adding several other types along the way. Making lots of expensive wood chips and shavings :-). Fishing -
