How do you spend your days?

I’m retired, but not sitting at home. One day a week I drive a truck and pick up furniture & appliances for Habitat For Humanity. One day I help the Lyme Land Trust with trail maintenance. I have a lot of home projects and do Bath & Kitchen tiling for friends.

What are your hobbies?

Hiking, photography, and home improvement projects.

The best meal I’ve ever had was?

A filet mignon dinner at Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, Florida many moons ago when I worked for Richmond Construction Products.

What superhero power do you wish you had?

I would love to fly. I have often dreamt that I can.

Piece of gear that you couldn’t live without?

A good pair of hiking boots that don’t give me blisters.

If you could be any animal what would you be?

Koala – everybody loves the quiet, unassuming Koala

Dream vacation?

A week in Bora Bora on my way to New Zealand where I would hike the mountains of the South Island.
