I often wonder how others lives have been for them. How their health is and where they are today. I'm retired and divorced with no off spring ever achieved. I ended up in Florida at the age of 28.And spent 18 years sailing the Bahamas. Virgin Islands as well as the east and west coasts of Florida and their keys. As well as being a certified open water diver I use to be able to dive 60 ft. of water on a single breath of air. Gather my own food such ass conch, lobster, crab and fish. Met sharks as well as drug smugglers face to face and lived to talk about it.
