DID YOU KNOW?...

Gary says "I keep a full schedule between doing driver's tests for the Kentucky State Police and working part time as a 911 dispatcher. I'm also active in my church where I enjoy singing and teaching youth.

I enjoy puzzles and Sudoku and fantasy baseball and basketball.

I've figured out the older I get the more boring I must get because I can't figure out anything else to put here!"
