Hello my name is Gandalf Parker.
And yes that is
my real name. Well actually Anthony Ardell Gandalf Parker. I'm an old Jack of
all Trades. I'm retired military (USAF). I'm married (separated) with 2 sons. I grew
up in Iowa, now I live in California. I have a nice house. 4 bdr, 2
bath, fireplace, huge back yard. Of course at California prices I could
sell it and get a castle back in Iowa.
Both of my sons (in
their 30's) still live with me. We are fairly clannish from both sides
of the family so that just feels OK with us. One son is married and they live here (paying rent of
course). The other son is handicapped and my "day job" is caring for
him (he pays rent also by the way).
I'm presently way too much of a mouse-potato. Telecommute is great but Internet is fattening. I really am trying to motivate myself to "just push away from the table" (well in this case, the computer desk) and get out more. Unfortunately my sons situation and my disease HS keeps me limited to 3 options; something he can attend also, or something very close (like in Vacaville), or something well in advance that is worth planning lots of coverage from other family members so I can attend.
