<p>Born and raised in northwestern New Mexico. Lived in Albuquerque and Las Cruces while chasing my college degree. Lived in Denver for over eleven years, chasing my career. I&nbsp;was SO&nbsp;glad to move&nbsp;back home&nbsp;in late 2000. It's been bliss ever since.<br /> <br /> Electrical engineer for the utility. I&nbsp;make a pretty good living. If you are NOT&nbsp;thinking about your electricity, then I&nbsp;know I&nbsp;am doing my job. UPDATE:&nbsp;I&nbsp;was promoted recently to Transmission Planning and Design Supervisor. Got a pleasant raise, a little more responsibility, and some new-found respect.<br /> <br /> Single - divorced,&nbsp;actually,&nbsp;more than ten years now - and loving it. Although the bed gets cold some nights, many a married man has told me &quot;You are smart&quot;&nbsp;for not getting married again. Am&nbsp;I living the life they want?&nbsp;I&nbsp;wonder. <br /> <br /> I&nbsp;play the bari sax for the community college jazz band. Oh, if only I&nbsp;could make money doing it! Update:&nbsp;I&nbsp;play the&nbsp;tenor sax now. Ummm&nbsp;- I&nbsp;like playing&nbsp;the bari better.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Took some dance lessons late in the Spring semester. I&nbsp;really enjoyed it. I&nbsp;shall take more lessons this fall, but it will be jazz dancing. . .&nbsp; not sure what to expect. &quot;Cats&quot;&nbsp;comes to mind - God forbid. HAHA!! Update:&nbsp;Actually, I&nbsp;did NOT&nbsp;take dance lessons this Spring. Jazz band got in the way, which is just fine by me.<br /> <span><br /> </span>Have a nice house, truck, car, a few toys, and&nbsp;the means to take care of it all. And I&nbsp;take care of&nbsp;myself. I&nbsp;believe&nbsp;I&nbsp;have an athletic build, being that I&nbsp;am able to run seven miles in an hour, and bench press just a smidge over my own body weight 10 to 12 times in a set. My doctor says my stats are in top shape. Woohoo!<br /> <br /> One son. He's 24 years old and living on his own. I ma proud of him!<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;found Devine Caroline while surfing. I&nbsp;read a few articles and thought it was a cool site, so I&nbsp;joined.</p> <p>To everyone reading this,&nbsp;Hello! If you want to know more about what I&nbsp;think and the way I&nbsp;feel, then feel free to read, critique, and leave comments with my articles. I&nbsp;welcome them all.</p>
