I live in Benton, AR with wife, Debbie, and son, Jess. I have one of the last Bachelors of Forestry degrees awarded in the United States. Four years were spent in the US Air Force, where I learned absolutely nothing about forestry, but much about people. I have been employed as a Forest Entomologist for the past 33+ years. Then degree I received in 1969 qualifies me to be a dinosaur, and you know where all the dinosaurs are.
Hobbies include woodworking, turning pens and pencils out of tropical woods, skeet shooting with Jess, trap shooting with Debbie and informal non-competitive benchrest shooting, nothing like the pressure cooker of competitive shooting. We have traveled extensively in the Southern US. I used to hunt and fish a bit, but the critters don’t bother me anymore, so I don’t bother them.
In general, I try to enjoy life and not take myself too seriously.
