Linda, married 1988, Michael, born 1983, is in the army now.  My prayers are always with him!  Mary, born 1992, is the light of my life.  Shannon, no sweeter a step-daughter could a man ask for.  Shannon has given us three wonderful grandchildren, Cooper, born 1999, Conner, born 2002; and Hannah, born 2004.  So now I am affectionately called Papaw Keg.  What a blessing!  Linda is a PACU RN at Woman's Hospital in Flowood.
Laser Mapping Specialist for, a family owned business.  We provide LIDAR data for flood plain mapping and orthorectification of aerial photography.
When I am not working, I am boating, golfing, fishing, camping.  I handgrabble catfish from the Ross Barnett reservoir.  I have been doing this since 1981 and so far I have boated four fish over 70 lbs., one weighing in at 98 lbs. in 1988 (photo below. ja).  I am living in Ridgeland.  Of course, I had to be close to the Reservoir. 

One proud papa here.  My daughter marching the other night.  In competition this weekend, our band ranked all 1's, tied for first in one category, Visual Demonstration, I think, and was fourth overall in open competition.  Madison Central, Clinton, and Warren Central finished 1-2-3.  Nice to see this little ol' 4-A school in that company of 5-A bands.


Craig redefines "monster cat," with this 2004 behemoth caught in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Notice the industrial strength gloves he's wearing while hoisting this big boy.
