About Me
I graduated from high school in 1967 and enlisted in the Army in September of the same year. I spent 19 months in Vietnam, and was then stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. I was given an honorable discharge and attended a community college for 1 year. I then joined the work force, eventually got married, had two sons and finally retired at 62 years of age.

I left the very scenic Ohio winters for Ajijic, Mexico in 2010 and I have not regretted my choice. I have two adorable grandchildren. Olivia is 3 and SJ (Seth Jr.) is almost 7 months. I like to read, watch movies and sports, play golf, and travel.

On September 9th I will be traveling for close to two years. I am not sure at this time where in Mexico but I will not return to Ajijic. I am a permanent resident of Mexico and I plan on using Mexico as my home base. My wish list countries to see would be in Europe and Asia. I hope that I will be able to achieve my travel goals while I am healthy and somewhat young enough to enjoy the trips.

Where I Live Now
