I never would have imagined my life as it is here and now.  God has such a sense of humor.  In hindsight, what would I change?  Not a thing.  He truly makes all things work together for good.
People I love:  my spouse Paulie, my children: Sean and Patrick, my future daughter in laws:  Britta and Lys and I do my best to love well the people God puts in life.
Your favorite line from your favorite movie:  ". . . mere flesh wound . . ." -Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Things you love:  ice cream, a cheeseburger after a long hike.
Things you fear:  a world without ice cream
Your bucket list:  Not really a "bucket list" kind of person, but I would like to thru hike the JMT and the Camino de Santiago (wanna go?)
The most unusual thing in your office:  me
