Welcome to the forums... Well.. that's whats we do here... we read all of them... The bragging rights and all. .. you can do them all you want.. welcome.Greetings from the middle of God's last creation...saving the best for last...Baveria!

So a little about myself....well that's a long story so I'll give you the short one.
Born and raised on a small farm in NW Ohio and I mean literally born during a winter storm at home. Growing up on the farm was, well farm life....hard, hot, demanding, rewarding and fun! But I knew there was something else outside of my county and I wanted to see it! So off I went to college but soon realized that that was not what I wanted. So....I left school and enlisted into the US Army and discovered the world that I sought to see. Nineteen plus years later, I myself looking at retirement, still single (rather good looking I like to think) and ready to go onto a new chapter in my life. Then, I met my best friend, who is now my wife, a local German girl. The Army returned me to the States for my last 17 months before retirement, during which time I married my best friend. Since she was still in Germany, I moved there. Now 20 years later, we have a 17 year old son and a 13 year old daughter. We have a small house on a 2 acre lot of land and raise chickens. Damn, I guess this short story is not really short at all.
