I am a retired Schizophrenia rehab nurse who is currently restoring a 1969 MGB Roadster historic SCCA/Tar Heel Sports Car Club rally car; married to my beautiful wife Sharon Ann who is a Special Education teacher; originally an archaeologist who discovered bluegrass in the 1970's in Cimarron, New Mexico and have always wanted to play a Gibson Pre-War Mastertone banjo! God Bless! Tony
