Basically we retired and moved to Florida as a home base in 2007. At that time we were “full timing” in a 32′ travel trailer and were headquarted in DeFuniak Springs in the panhandle.

As the years went by health issues demanded we change into a more permanent environment (no steps) and in 2011 traded the trailer for a 3 bedroom CBS home in Silver Springs Shores (just south of Ocala) where we now live.

Health issues have slowed us down. Jeni has fallen a few times, broken a knee cap and a hip in the last few years. Hip replacement took time to rehab from. She has also developed a liking for jigsaw puzzles, caring for potted plants inside and out of our screened in porch, and making items with plastic canvas. Florida does that to people.

Ed still fools around with ham radio a little, along with some other hobbies. Click on the W9CHA tab at the top of the page for more…

So, mobility is an issue. No traveling for some time now – the pandemic helped that. But, plenty to keep us busy in and around the home. And we do take smaller “day trips” in Florida – still much to see. Lunch with Gary Anderson every month keeps old contacts and friends closer.

August 10th, 2023 was our 45th wedding anniversary. And they said it would never last.

And then, on Jeni’s birthday on the 13th, son Greg flew down from Hartford Ct to surprise Jeni. We were both so glad to see him, Covid had really messed up our visits. He had to leave after a few hours to go back home. What a wonderful thing to do for Jeni, really brightened up her life.

Thanks for visiting. Send us an e-mail so we can relay our phone numbers and really get in contact.
