About Me...

Hi there and thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  Why did I start this? Well, after more than 30 years of service in the Foreign Service I have visited over 60 countries. My last post was to Frankfurt, Germany. There I met the love of my life, Kathrin, and am living happily ever after.  After 3 years at the consulate I have been living the retired life in Frankfurt with her since 2016. What do I do to keep myself busy? Well, being the facility manager of our house is a full time job. Yard/house maintenance, IT support, home automation development/support. I never worked so much in my life!
