Found Out Who I Am

Roger, born 1946 and reared in a cotton mill village (Caroleen) in western NC. You can do the math! Attended UNC-Chapel Hill from 1964 until 1968. In 1969 I was drafted into the Marine Corps, but managed to stay out of Vietnam. Whew! I returned to Chapel Hill and went to work at the University Printing Services. Worked in a variety of capacities there, becoming involved in typesetting which evolved into digital prepress. It was a great time to be in a rapidly changing technology and UNC afforded me an opportunity to work with an incredible, diverse group of people. I retired from state employment in 1999 as Prepress Manager. I loved working with the technology, but really didn't enjoy the stress of production and management. Occasionally I work part-time. My wonderful lady, Linda, works full time in community development, mostly focusing on low income housing.

My father passed away in late 2000, leaving me an assortment of woodworking tools. So I fixed up a small shop and have been upgrading some of the "crapsman" tools, endeavoring to acquire basic woodworking skills. I’ve yet to achieve that. Current foci are: building cabinets/storage and jigs for tools; installing some dust collection (getting close); and sharpening tools (though I only have chisels).

Other hobbies or interests include:
Avid reader (woodworking, early NC history/maps, novels, and current events)
Dabble in photography (doesn’t everyone?)
Travel (favorite to-date was Australia)
Plants, mostly flower, shrub, and tree planting with a little vegetable gardening
Music (mostly blues, reggae, and rock currently)
Physical fitness (2 hour visits to health club 4 times a week and volleyball once a week)
Computer interest is mostly limited to Apple Macintosh because of graphic arts background. I purchased a Mac Plus in 1986 and my passion for Apple products continues.

Well, now I’m fully exposed. I’ll be posting all my credit card numbers, PINS, and passwords next week.

In the words of an organization that I've belonged to for over 17 years,

"Thanks for sharing" =D>

Seriously, thanks!

Now we have to get "night stalker" to tell us his first name.
