I live in Vermilion with Jim and our dog, Baby. We enjoy traveling, fishing and boating, river cruising and sports car rallying. We love to explore wineries, both local and more exotic locations. Home improvement seems to be our primary fair weather activity. I also enjoy gardening, being active in the community and spending time with my grandchildren.
