My father was a career Air Force officer having served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Therefore, I am what is affectionately referred to as a military “Brat”. I attended 15 different schools in 12 years of secondary education. I have lived in St Louis, Mo, Long Island, N.Y., New Jersey, Maine, Illinois, Guam, South Carolina, Montana, Memphis, TN., Denver, Co, Ft. Worth, TX. , and Heidelberg, Germany.
I have travelled through all of the lower 48, France, Spain, and did a tour of duty in Turkey while in the US Army. While stationed at Ft Devens, Massachusetts I met Gaby. She was born in New Brunswick, Canada and is fluent in French and English. We’ve been married 43 years, have 2 grown adults and 1 grand-daughter.
With all that travelling growing up, it was probably inevitable that we would become full timers and hit the road. In 1998 we sold everything, bought a motor home and took the plunge. We’ve never looked back. What a great way to live.
We had our own solar screen business for 10 years. 9/15/2010 we started working as Gate Guards in Texas.
We left Gate Guarding in July 2017 and finally retired to Tulsa, Ok in 2018.
Bob…for some reason I can’t find your email address. However, I had the same problem with my WP site and the comment button. It still doesn’t appear on your “Test” blog. I Googled it and came up with the site, http://www.justanswer.com/sip/wordpress?r=ppc|ga|2|Computer%20-%20Programming|Wordpress&JPKW=on%20wordpress&JPDC=S&JPST=&JPAD=25008678898&JPMT=p&JPNW=g&JPAF=txt&JPCD=20120207&JPRC=1&JPOP=Darren_Andrew9sec_Trans&gclid=CLTu57Pf9bgCFc9i7AodyBYAJw that says it answers WP questions every 9 seconds. My other suggestion is to check your widgets and make sure they are in order.
It seems that it’s only on your latest blog, “How Old Are You?” Which, by the way, was excellent.
Bob…have you turned off your comments section on your latest blog? It only asks if you “Like” or want to manage your subscriptions. Thanks, Vickie
Don’t know what the problem is. I turned nothing off. Comments should be available. I’m trying to figure it out and solve the problem.
Pretty cool blog Bob. Speaking of your “brat” days…You’d never recognize Shaw AFB these days. I sent you a photo of your old house, but there many more changes. The new BX is where enlisted family housing used to be and the golf course has been extended to where the on base officers quarters were before. There’s a lake where the gas station was when we lived there. I’ll get more pictures when I go out there and have some time.
Have enjoyed reading your blog. My husband Tom & I would like to work this winter and have been reading all the info we can on gate guards. Hope to see ya’ll in Texas this winter!
