Nah, took the first wife and left to go make a million in CA in 59, had some 
very interesting things happen there, but didn't settle in any one place west 
of the river for more than 10 years, leaving the 1st wife under a slab in 
Rapid City along the way, till a head hunter sent me to WV where WDTV needed 
a Chief Engineer in '84.  That wasn't exactly what the 2nd missus wanted so 
she split, I found an old maid music teacher & married her in 89, so I've 
been a wannabe WV hillbilly for the last 23 years.  Since then, life has been 
good.
