Where

 

We live in LaGrangeville, NY in the house I built in 1974. My youthful years were spent in Lake Orion, MI. That's just twelve miles north of Pontiac and the Silver Dome. My wife, Sharon, and I enjoy the Mid-Hudson Valley and also our Upstate property near Lake George. Since most of our family is in Michigan, we visit there about once every two or three months. I have flown to many airports in the Northeast and I also know the pot-holes and speed traps on the entire length of the Taconic State Parkway. My mailing address is 26 Kuchler Drive, LaGrangeville, NY 12540, and my business telephone number is (914)223-7393. Give me a call or send me a snail mail and we'll exchange email addresses for future correspondence.
 

House

 
In the Summer of 2004 we sold our property in the Adirondacks and bought a house in Livonia, just a few miles from our son Darin, from our son Rod and his family, and from Sharon's parents. We call this our Grimm house, since it is on Grimm Street. We now have a cozy place to stay on our many visits to see the family. Katie and Alyssa like to come over for sleep-overs, and we have a good time with everyone there. I also have several projects that I can work on that keep me busy and allow improvements on this investment. A small house on 186 acres in Upstate NY becomes a small house on 1/3 acre in Suburban Detroit. Is this progress or what?
 

House

 
In the Summer of 2005 we finally admitted we were tired of the 1970's Gold Aluminum siding on our NY house. We got the windows painted and had new vinyl siding installed. The price for the painting and siding was a little more than half of what we paid for the entire house to be built originally. But we like the new look, and we are glad that the project is over. Well, it is not exactly over, there is always that list of home-owner projects that changes but never seems to go away.

In January of 2010 we bought a small house adjacent to the Grimm house since it was for sale at a very low selling price. We call this house the Clarita house, since it fronts on Clarita Street in Livonia. We are fixing up the house as an investment property, and using the house and its garage for other technology projects. We removed the hot tub from the back and persuaded Jerry's brother to install it on his own deck in Millington, MI. We still have projects to work on wherever we go, but then, that's what we do, wherever we are.
