I'm a retired guy who lived in a motor home for ten years before givin' that up for the Good Life in a semi-spacious apartment located in Portales, NM. The son of a career USAF officer, I was career USAF myself: 1963 - 1985. I spent 16 years in the Info Technology biz following my retirement from the USAF, with Electronic Data Systems (EDS) and a small web services firm in SFO. My two adult sons are career military officers, one USAF and one USN. Divorced; there have been two Mrs. Penningtons and they are referred to by number (e.g., The First Mrs. Pennington [TFMP] and TSMP) at EIP. Single and content. Politically moderate, I'm conservative on fiscal, foreign policy, and national defense issues (surprise!) and liberal on social issues. I've voted Republican since 1980 but if the Libertarian party were viable I'd support them.
