I’d like to introduce you to Jim

Jim

One of the nice things about this blog is I get to introduce people to friends of mine. Jim is my friend.  Correction – Jim, and his lovely wife Carol, are Sherry’s and my very, very close friends.  It’s convenient that they are our neighbors, too.

Today we had a foot of snow on the ground, and Jim was out about 8:00 running his snow blower.  He and I usually have a race in the morning to see who can get our first to clear a path around the block.  Today it was him.

Jim is a Navy veteran, having been aboard ships during the Korean war.  He and Carol have been married many years, and they have lived in their home nearly 40 years.

He had a long career with the Bureau of Land Management, followed by owning a landscaping business after he retired from the BLM.

Jim is one of my favorite people in the world. He’s a faithful Catholic, a well-read man, a polka lover and an all-around good guy.  And he’s 82 years old.

Glad you can meet Jim.
