Married 30 years, 19 year old triplet boys who have earned the rank of Eagle Scout. During the fall of 2014, we hiked 101 miles over 9 days at Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico and summit-ed two mountains. The boys and I are currently restoring a 1968 Corvette Roadster and have replaced the engine, transmission, steering assembly components, as well as rewired the entire car.
