My wife, Sara, and I live in Lake Oswego, Oregon, a suburb of Portland.  We have three children, all on their own:  Michael, Kristen, and Frank. I play as much tennis as I can, three - five times a week, and spend as much time as possible with our grandchildren Zachary, Kristina, Nathan, Lucas, Lucretia, and Frank.  By the way, I'd be happy to talk about them - individually or collectively - at length!
