My wife, Debbie, and I are now empty nesters. This is very new to us. We've been filling much of our time learning things we didn't have time to do in the past. I'm starting to do some basic woodworking projects and I really enjoy being able to work with my hands and problem solve. Of course, we are at the age of learning all about pickleball. Not too good at it yet but having fun trying. Staying active and healthy is important to us. Someday, grandkids will be in our future. On Friday nights we enjoy searching Madison and towns near us for the best Supper Clubs around.
