Finally decided to retire, after passing the big 70 in 2016. planning to grow some feathers and Snowbird for the crappy Michigan winters. I'm planning to buy my father's house in Summerton,SC from his estate. taking me and my trusty Segway down to southern roads. I will convert it back to full police modeL,(ATV FORMAT ) after I HAD to install smaller tires and fenders to let me drive thru the doors at SVSU ( that reduced its width by over a foot. ) I also plan to do some off-road Segway ATV exploring up at my cabin in the UP ( near the Pictured Rocks). SC SUMMERS ARE WAY TOO HOT FOR ME, SO I WILL SPEND SUMMERS and about 6 months of the year at my fiancé, Carol's house in Caledonia, mi. As well as in the UP ( Upper Penninsula to you non-Michigan "trolls" (who live below the macinac bridge )

School Story:

Graduated from Mich state with MBA AND Ph.D TAUGHT AT Central Mich Univ, then at univ of Wisconsin Oshkosh before Finally coming to Saginaw Valley State Univ, where I taught Marketing for 31 years. this took me to TAIWAN about a dozen times to teach MBA COURSES VIA SVSU. I had a stroke in the 9/11 year of 2001' but kept on teaching till this year ( 2016) This stroke removed most use of my left hand and arm ( I was left-handed) but Ive leaned to adapt and manage to still do more than most two armed people. I just treat the situation as a "life-puzzle"and just,think to myself, how am I going to get this done, and then do it. STILL HAVENT FIGURED OUT HOW TO USE CHOP STICKS WITH MY LEFT HAND, BUT STILL WORKING ON IT. My FRIENDS TELL ME IM NOT STUBBORN, BUT JUST VERY DETERMINED TO GET DONE, WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE!
