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.
Today was the day to clean up some of the leaves in the yard. This job would be impossible without a good mower. The John Deere does a good job but it still takes a full day to do the entire yard right.
The Foot to my wife's Singer Sewing Machine arrived today. It came all the way from American Samoa and works just perfectly. I am thrilled. We had gone to a local sewing shop that only had the wrong part with didn't work at all. The net and T N T sewing solved my problem.
I got three feet and a holder for $15 including shipping. The machine is fixed and I am very happy.
