I was born & raised in Louisiana. Worked the oilfields of Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, & Mississippi. Moved to Texas 45 years ago, met my wife, married for 42 years. Father of 2 sons & 1 daughter. Grandfather of 8 granddaughters & 1 grandson.
Our first born granddaughter has just signed with Rider University in New Jersey. She's a very successful athlete as a Springboard and Platform Diver. Her academics, attitude, community service, beliefs, along with her athleticism has allowed her to excel at a very young age. We are so very proud of and for her as she begins her journey to new horizons.
46 year Oil Industry veteran worked International in 31 countries. Currently I'm 'in transition' from the oil industry for the past 6 months. It's been a blessing in many ways. I needed a break. I managed to dodge so many downturns in the oil industry for 46 years, but not this one. All things happen for a reason.
I'm excited with the possibility to one day have an income source that doesn't require working 18 hour days and 3-1/2 hour commutes. Wealthy Affiliate came along at just the right time. I just wish I'd been introduced 6 months sooner.
I truly look forward to becoming a very busy member of the Wealthy Affiliate Community 'paying-it-forward'.
