Retired and Loving it!

Retired military, 1969-1993. "Played" in the jungles, woods, mountains and sand boxes all around the world. Visited all continents except Antarctica - Brrrr, too cold for me!

After retiring from active duty, I worked as a Deputy Project Manager, Jamaica 1993-97.
Returned to Florida, completed Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, CJ - with a minor in History & Masters Degree in CJ, University of North Florida, 1997-2001.

Instructed Criminal Justice students at a university in Jacksonville, FL, 2002-04; Academic Department Chair, 2004-08.

Retired as a Project Manager in Barbados, 2011 to December 2014.

Winter weather in Barbados was delightful! Summers aren't so bad either.

I am also a SCUBA Divemaster and working in the Caribbean makes it so much easier to enjoy this sport regularly!

I use humor in all possible situations, as I find it is better to laugh than cry and I guess it comes from some of my military experiences. If you criticize my opinion , that is okay.

However, should you "attack" me, I will fire a salvo right back at your "grid coordinates" (screen name, LOL) that will have you ducking for cover, so to speak. Keep it civil and so will I.

I can see both sides of a controversy but make decisions based on my conscience.

Lastly - "I ate the last Mango in (each country I visited") and I enjoy Buffett and Barefoot Man music! Fins Up and the Rum is fine any time of year!

Have a Good Day!
