Welcome to iKC, Joe. You and I sound a lot alike. I am retired, been married 40 years, have two children and one grandchild. I grew up in the country in SE Missouri. I am a knife collector. I don't call myself an antique collector but I have some that are family artifacts. I think I have read every book Louis L'Amour wrote. Many of them several times. And I love touring the USA in my car. I have been in every state west of the Mississippi but two and have been in most of the states east of it.
