Hobbies. Barbara returned from a trip to France where she learned how to paint silk scarves. Thanks to a wonderful teacher, Carol Gardyne, she now has a growing business and has sold many of her hand-painted scarves.
Football. Barbara and I love football and watch as often as we can. As former season ticket holders for the San Francisco 49ers, we rarely miss a televised game. We are also huge New England Patriot fans. Her parents, being Dallas Cowboys fans, made for fun and friendly rivalry. Barbara's Mom, Lucille, who is now deceased, was a great fan and more knowledgeable about football than me.
Genealogy. This has been our most fulfilling hobby. We love working on our family trees together and sharing our data with a lot of family and friends. We are very active in several Genealogy Internet forums and groups. We were active participants in Summit 2000 in Nova Scotia, Canada and also in the summer of 2004 for the big genealogy conference in Nova Scotia. It is my hope that someone in my family will take up this chronicle after me and pass it on to our descendants.
