Judi and I also spend a good bit of time with our greyhounds, Ishaq,
Deli, Kose, Sloopy, and Ron. They are "rescued" racers from Greyhound Friends Of North
Carolina in Oak Ridge, NC, near Greensboro. Sloopy, however, came
to us via a different route, having been found running loose and
starving in Burke County, NC. Sadly, Simon, our first
greyhound, developed cancer and died on February 13, 2006. Since then,
Panzi and Bull have died. The greys
travel with us almost everywhere. They go with Judi on errands and
shopping trips, waiting patiently in the car. They
particularly like traveling in the motorhome and have gone with us to
Michigan, Florida, Delaware, Texas, Northern Virginia, South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, upstate New York, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and
more. They attract
a lot of attention and it is particularly fun to see them all tumble
eagerly out of the motorhome at walk times.
Judi and I also ride tandem bicycles ( a "bicycle built for two") and especially enjoy "rallies," where we get together with other tandem riders and have a good time for a weekend. We ride for fun, not racing, and we talk bikes and enjoy good food. Over the years we have ridden all over the southeast, through parts of Michigan and New York state and as far west as Texas.
We have two adult sons, Marshall and Aaron. Marshall is a visual artist and Aaron is a composer and performing musician.
Aaron earns his main living at the Enrichment Center in Winston-Salem, NC where he is responsible for the music program. He has several CDs available. He plays drum kit with Clare Fader & The Vaudevillains. They have CDs too.
Aaron has a daughter, Lilith, 9, and a stepdaughter, Violet, 6. Violet's mom is Heather, a fellow pet lover. Aaron and Heather have three dogs, Moxie, Emory ("Emmy"), and Callie. They also have several cats.
