Hi, I’m Salvatore, 55 years old, and happily married to Valerie. Our daughter is married and living in Virginia, so, Valerie & I are enjoying an empty nest. Well, empty might be somewhat inaccurate. We have 4 rescued pets that are now happily living with us and loving life (and the beds, the couches, the rocking chairs, the porch, and the wood burning stove!) Gunther, our Border Collie/Brittany Spaniel mix also adores his yard. Given his breed mix, it’s not surprising that he tries to herd squirrels rather than chase them. Our cats, Timmy, Sienna, and Renee all are strictly indoor cats where they are safe, healthy, and loved.
I work full time as a manager for a global manufacturing/retail company based in Switzerland. I also work part time from April to October as a motorcycle safety instructor for the State of Connecticut. Finally, I’m a published freelance writer and photographer with my work appearing in both regional and national publications.
With so little free time I found myself wishing I’d done more with my hobbies while pursuing new ones. This blog is my voice as to how I intend to now do that, and, I hope you’ll be a part of it.
