I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

"Parents" again.

Jean and I will become "parents" again, this time for a 2-year-old. We've been approved to provide a home for a young man that's been the center of attention in a child-abuse case. Timmy has lived here before, with his mother, but this time he'll be our responsibility. We're looking forward to it.

Sixty is a bit old to become a parent again, but not too old to provide the kind of safe, secure home life abused children need. Pray for us - we're going to need it!
