I try to jog and work out when I can. I have hunted quite a bit through the years, especially for elk, and continue to do so, even though my hunting trips are much less frequent than in the past,and enjoy photography, especially of hummingbirds and my granddaughters. Carol, my wife, and I have been married for 50 years as of August 8, 2015.

John was a close friend in high school.  He was a good guy (I only ran around with good guys.) and lots of fun.  I am sad to learn of his passing.

It's Johnny Bliznak's birthday today.
