Gary was born and reared in California and joined the Army after graduating from High School. Afterwards he joined the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept and retired from it in 2001. Catherine was born and reared on the east coast and in the southern United States. She obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1998 and is currently a practicing doctor. Gary is the one who does all the images and occasionally Catherine adds her insightful input on layout, design etc. So if an image really stinks, it's probably because Gary didn't ask her first before uploading it. In Jan of 2010 we moved from Los Angeles area to our vacation home in North Carolina. Well it's not a vacation home, but from the dregs of southern California we feel like everyday is a vacation where we now live. Fresh air, lakes and even a stream that runs along side our property. North Carolina is, as we have discovered, home to some of the most hospitable people imaginable. Friendly folks, cheerful smiles and even the local eateries offering up the best Livermush and Porkgnaw imaginable. See y'all soon.
