Hi eveybody,

I retired almost 2 years ago and until tonight I hardly ever sit down on a laptop anymore so I apologize for being gone. Before that I was working a ton of hours over in India and Trinidad and had very spotty internet and I just fell out of touch. Hope everyone is happy and well!

I spent nine months in 1967/1968 in Hanau Germany in the U.S. Army, that time really helped me appreciate our country and the freedoms and standards of living we can earn and make for ourselves.
I can't imagine what living and working in those two countries were like, how was it?
