I am 64 and took early retirement so I could complete one of my bucket list items which is to finish a degree. As you might see from my profile picture, I am a bit of an adventurer. In the picture I am about to rappel down a 25 story building with my son at my side as a reward for raising money for Special Olympics. My hobbies are gardening, both flowers and vegetable, camping and fishing. I love nature and spend a good deal of time getting up close and personal with it, be it an earth worm or a great blue heron. I also volunteer at Louis Ginter Botanical Gardens here in Richmond.
