Taking a break from Ham Radio

Retirement is great!

In addition to amateur radio I love to play golf and have been playing since 1995. Now that I am retired and have more time for golf my scores are coming down. I love the game and usually play three times a week. I marshal at a local course one afternoon a week in return for free golf. If you are ever in Houston and want to play give me a shout.
