Just call me "Joe." I'm a retired ex-civil servant living in the Pacific Northwest with my wife, Patti, our three Shih Tzus (Keno, Gracie, and Riley who believe they are human children) and three cats (Chanel, a rescue, as well as Fiona and Sebastian—he thinks he's a dog).
I've been fortunate in life to have been able to put a lot of miles over the years on old highways all across this land. While highways are my original passion, the bridges that come with them have become an ancillary affinity. Over the years, I've built a collection of vintage postcards showing roadside America, several of which include old bridges. I'll be sharing those once they're scanned.
The transition to "crusty old fart" has slowed me down a bit, but I still get out and explore when I can.
