My American Dream:
After initial hectic months of training and moves I settled down in Wichita Falls Texas in 1981 where Alice and I raised
our family. I have 3 children Leonie, Jonathan and Michael, all grown and responsible (smiley face).
I became American Citizen in 1984, a move that I have not regretted.
Learned how to Barbeque and I am off to the races, attended Memphis in Spring, feasted at Pecan Lodge, Hard-Eight, Kansas City,
Istanbul, and my favorite is still the little skewers of meat in Malaysia called Satay.
Relaxing day would be cooking barbeque for friends.
Reading science fiction and economic philosophy.
