Buncha kids – OK I’m just jealous.
I’m Gary (my grandfather was Chauncey), and I just turned 68. I’m still gainfully employed as a software engineer in the computer industry (non-stop since 1960), but that’s just because I didn’t plan well for the future. And who knew I’d still be alive after all the alcohol I’ve consumed. I began brewing in 1984, and with some breaks in between, still making the good stuff.
Two kids 44 (today) and 40, both grown and gone. No grandkids.
My other passion is music. Started on piano very early and worked my way through accordion (no laughs), guitar, flute, bass, electric guitar, various bagpipes and whistles, violin and now cello. Musical tastes are pretty much anything but rap and hip hop.
Favorite guitarist is Joe Bonamassa – been a member of his street team since day one. Favorite violinist is Gil Shaham. Bapipes and flutes: Davy Spillane. Cello: Yo-Yo Ma and the band Apocalyptica.
There you have it. Anyone else telling the story would likely point out that I appear to be a hopeless drunk, but it seems to play well on me.
