TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF

Retired Air Force. I worked in the Aircraft navigational repair and Public Health fields. I have 2 adult children, 4 dogs, 2 cats and 3 birds. I want to be a minimalist and believe in repurposing, and donating. The tiny house movement, living organically, and leaving a small footprint is the way.
