I'm a retired electrician and LOVE living in a rural area. I thrive on peace and serenity. Certainly, I enjoy visiting cities but wouldn't want to live there. I enjoy watching the wildlife and simply taking in the beautiful countryside. I am now learning to appreciate fine photography such as landscapes, wildlife, most anything else that strikes me while wishing I had that talent! That is my buddy Mike and he loves beards as you might be able to tell.
