Born and raised in Keavy, Kentucky until I joined the Navy at 18. Once I met my wife, we moved a couple miles to the big city of Corbin. I think the population is somewhere around 8,324, so if you blink you’ll miss it hehe.

I’ts interesting, but really it’s all good.

That is why I started the topic….to see where we all live, Heck I even found out a L/J just lives a little over 30 min from me. And as I read the replies I see many are discovering they have L/J’s as neighbors…..or have lived close to one another at one time or another.

I was born in Oklahoma…but like many because of my time in the military, have lived all over the states and the world. I have lived in California, and Mississippi while in the service, and in Guam, Naples Italy and Sicily, and several other country’s and states for shorter times.

I have also spent time in Malawi Africa, South Africa, France, Ireland, England, Canada and Mexico over the years since being out of the service.

Interesting to see how the love for this hobby spans generations, borders, genders, races…you name it. Thanks for starting this up Don.

My only regret about living where I am now is that I didn’t settle where there is an easy local source of good material – and a nice big tool outlet store I can go to and drool over all the shiny baubles (I think my better half must have planned it that way???).......but judging by some of my fellow LJ’s they must certainly have the same issues…I still seem to find the stuff I need when I need it though…

Anyway, what an interesting group – all linked together by an interesting hobby…nice to meet you all
