Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it. – Buddha
Here’s John ~ ~ ~ Flying was my 25 year passion. I lived for my freedom in the air. 18,000′ above the ground, soaring a distance around the mountains, searching for thermal updrafts above fields and gliding up to 90 kts beneath miles of cloud streets.
Here’s Diane ~ ~ ~ I loved the family ranch so much I chose to spend all my free time taking care of the cows and calves. Canning season started in July and ended just before the frost set in. It was a very rewarding lifestyle; a change to the 25+ years spent as a financial analyst stuffed in the maze of corporate cubicles.
The Ranch, Home away from corporate and city life ~ ~ ~
“God’s Country”, as my elderly uncle described it, and the natural beauty and serenity surrounded us. Those cloud streets on the horizon were John’s idyllic flying weather.
Here are 5 of 7 sons, spouses and grandsons. We raised a great blended family of seven boys, their ages range in a 9 year span. 3 grandsons and another grandson on his way in July, a going away gift. We are very proud of our sons! PS. Sorry, we spent your inheritance…
Two of us preparing to set sail ~ ~ ~ In 2005 we spent 10 days on a bare boat charter in the Caribbean with a group of flying and sailing friends. The sailing experience turned out to be more than a vacation. It became our dream and new way of life to sail the oceans.
