I was born in Long Beach, California to Marjorie Crane and Fred L. Welsh during the last days of WWII. I grew up in the Vassar/Millington, Michigan area where I did a lot of farming in my youth. Then, it was on to Michigan State for a BA in history/pre-law. After graduation, I became an officer in the US navy serving on LST1160 Traverse County and DD931 Forrest Sherman as main propulsion assistant and CIC officer. After leaving the Navy in 1972, I managed a Manpower Inc. office in Flint, Michigan. Then it was on to General Motors for twenty-seven years as an Industrial Engineer. Now, I'm happily retired and very busy with a singing group, Brothers in Song, and with volunteer work at the Bay County Historical Museum.
Going Solo : One of the fun things about blogging is finding other people doing the same things you are. Going Solo has a picture of a small boat on the water way in front of Fort San Marcos. She sees it as needing a lot of care.. Paint I bet. To me, it looks well worn but not worn out. I'll bet it belongs to someone who could really show us somthing about the bay.
