About Joejr49
Joined August 2017
Born an Army brat, enlisted in the USAF in 1970 (worked Avionics on RF-4C, T-29, KC-135, B-52G & H, F-4E, F-16 & F-15 AIS & AIS Mobile Facility Program), married in 1975 (all of our kids have had four legs and tails :-)...dogs, horses, cats), retired from the USAF in 1991. Worked in Manufacturing for the next 23 years in mainly Production Scheduling, retired from that in 2014. My best friend, my wife, passed away in 2015, two weeks short of our 40th anniversary. I believe that God does always answer our prayers...it's just that sometimes the answer is "No". Not really sure what comes next, but will will make the best of it...and now I'll do it here in WA.

Hello Joe, Your profile picture is wonderful - what a beautiful horse, too - lovely. You are an inspiration in so many ways. Thank you for your service, and thank you for your perspective and strength. I am so sorry about the loss of your best friend, your wife of 40 years. I got chills when I read that, and at the same time you are setting such an example of strength and resilience and faith.

I look forward to following your work and your success!

All the best,
Kate

My apologies for not replying sooner, and thank you for your kind words--they are much appreciated.

Matt was our first horse (after I retired from the Air Force and we moved to Southern Indiana to be near my In-laws, living there after my Father-In-Law retired from the Air Force).

I am now in Florida with "Kids" numbers 14, 15 and 16, Sherrill. Jack and Andy, getting settled once again...really great down here, and I am working on a few things to get back into my sites again.

Thanks again for your gracious thoughts

Best wishes,

Joe

Thank you for your service. We love our vets .

Thank you for you kind words.Your are right, some things seem to fade, but then I encounter something and it seems like yesterday.

I'm down to 3 canine kids now, out of the 16 that we had over those 40 years (but not 16 all at once!!!). Barn cats too numerous to count.

Thank you for your Following me, too.

Hi Joe,
Thanks for the follow back! It's great to meet you and be a part of your network here. I also must say a big Thank You for your service to our country as well! I see you also have/had quite a variety of fur kids, which is awesome in my book. My hubby and I have 5 four-legged furry kids in the house at the moment, lol.

Anyways, I'm so sorry to hear of your wife's passing...I can't imagine, especially after so many years together. Very true, God doesn't always answer us with a "yes," but I always believe he has his reasons whatever they may be...

Hope all is going well for you in your training...keep in touch!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry

Thanks Sherry,

At one time we had 6 dogs in the house and 3 in my workshop in the garage, with a fenced area outside the garage...most were rescues and of course we enjoyed all of them Of the 3 in the garage, the oldest lived to be 17. Now have numbers 14,15 and 16 over those 40 years.

Training is going well, still patiently waiting on those first $$.

Thanks for including me in your network, too.

Best wishes,

Joe

Thanks for the follow Joe. I follow you back.
I have 1001 mixed feeling reading through your profile. Those numbers and letters must be army machinery..?

Then you caught me with sudden sadness. Sorry bout the loss.

You are right - God is the greatest planner. Most of the time, we do not know what next for us. Hope for the best and ready for the worse, I'd say.

Wishing you a great success building your business through WA.

Keep in touch.

Cheers,
Joe (too).

Those numbers are US Air Force aircraft that I worked on during my career.

So sorry for your loss Joe
I've lost both my husbands I'd planned on living with. Jim passed in 85' and I was a widow 21 years then along came dear Gale. We made six years before he went to be with the Lord. Alzheimer's took him. I'm here now not alone but with my daughter jim and I were married 34 years. Hard loss. I still grive for him but with great memories as I know you shall.
Thank you for following me and I already follow you

Hi Joe:). I am extremely sorry about your wife, but I do believe that God is In control of everything that happens. That may not be much comfort, but knowing that she is in a much better place is something to be grateful for.
I love the fact that your kids also have 4 legs and tails! Mine do too:). Thanks so much for the follow! Following you back, and wishing you all the best here at WA:)

Suzi, bless your heart and thank you so much for your kind words. She is definitely in a better place, and i am grateful for that.

I just got back in from my barn--was helping my neighbor with her 6 horses (mine have been gone for about 2 years). She also has 6 dogs and we are "rescuing" 17 stray cats in the tack room, and there are 5 more cats that hang out on my carport. "My kids" are numbers 14, 15 and 16 out of 16 dogs over 40 years...never a dull moment around here :-)

Thanks for the Follow, too, and best wishes,

Joe

I have always had rescue pets:) They are my babies, even though some of them are very old! I love horses. In fact, I can walk out my front door and see them in the pasture about 100 yards away. They aren't mine, but I love to watch them. You are so blessed to be able to still work with them, even if they aren't yours:)
Blessings:)

Thanks for the follow Joe, following you back. I am so sorry to hear about your wife and best friend, that breaks my heart. I am a God chaser, and fully trust Him, although I don't always understand His timing. Prayers for comfort and strength for you, that He provides vision and strength, and that you know you are never alone. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help. Peace my friend! :-)

You are right, you don't have to go looking...i wasn't looking either, 43 years ago, when I went to lunch with a coworker, where we met his wife, who also brought along a coworker...I'm not looking now either--if I am meant to have a "next best friend", it will happen.

I have been in contact with many great folks here, and have now found another in you, and look forward to our experiences in WA, learning and building, and ahving fun!!!

Thanks and God bless you, too, Barb

Hello, Joe. Thank you for connecting with me. My condolences to you and your family as well. I suppose when the answer is "No" we can only look forward to what comes next and make the best of it.

Hello Joe,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I just wrote my 100th training for WA. I have categorized them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi there Joseph! How's the training going? Are you enjoying WA?

I found this great video by Kyle I'm sure you'd be interested in, take a look: By now I'm sure you're beginning to grasp all the knowledge there are here in WA.

If you ever need help, just ask of course :)

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hey there Joseph.

Glad you decided to take advantage of the free membership here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Now that you’ve joined the WA family, it’s time for you to get clear on what you are here to achieve. Do you...

want to build a profitable blog business?
want to learn how to get traffic?
want to learn how to do SEO?
want to get free hosting?
want a helpful community?
want a step by step action plan that will GUARANTEE success?

All that you are looking is available for you on the left-hand side of the screen.

Here is what you should do first.

1) Fill out a quick (short) bio and add a profile picture.

This will help you make connect with other fellow members of WA

2) Start Exploring WA.

Start exploring what WA is all about. My suggestion would be to hit the green “Get Started Here” button. It is a 10-day step-by-step process which will show you how you to start building your online empire!

3) Read this amazing story by a fellow WA member:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/parre/blog/my-first-10-000-month

It will show you what you can achieve here at WA if you simply follow the training process.

-----------------------------------------------

If you enjoy Wealthy Affiliate, which I am sure you will, then you should consider going premium in the near future.

When you are ready to go "Premium", you will open up all the training modules, webinars, courses and content available at Wealthy Affiliate.

Here are just SOME of the bonuses you'll get if you decide to go premium in your first 7 days:

1) A 59% discount on your first month (only $19 - $0.61c per day)

2) You’ll have me as your own personal mentor in WA.

I’ve been here 4 years now and achieved all my dreams with WA, I want to help you do the same.

3) Free hosting for your website (valued at $12 per month each).

I have 5 blogs hosted at WA, this alone saves me $60 per month on hosting costs.

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !

-----------------------------------------------

I’ll leave you to it now Joseph .

Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself and the WA community to you.

Just know that I am here to help you so feel free to reply back on this comment or leave me one on my own profile here:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/chris-lee

I’ll drop by in a few days again to see how you’re doing.

All the best!

Chris Lee
