Lynda and I love to travel. We have been blessed over the past several years
having had the opportunity to enjoy a lot of exciting trips both domestic and abroad.
Some of our trips have included Orlando, Redlands
CA., San Francisco, Los Angeles. Big Bear Lake CA., Palm Springs, Mexico,
Phoenix, Hawaii and Europe. My brother lives in Bonn Germany which gives us an
excellent excuse to go overseas.
