In May of 1999, Cindy and I took a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. We had a great time! This picture, that Cindy took in Nassau, originally appeared on a web page I used to post our photos and gave me a chance to poke fun at myself and […]

Here’s a photo of my mom back in 1990 when she was working at the Deaf Services Center in Ocala, Florida as an interpreter for the deaf. Mom would have been 82 today.
