Worked for DEC in the Boston area until 1989 and then transferred to the local office in Tallahassee. In 1994, I was laid off from DEC and went back to the State Library of Florida to manage their computer systems and networks. I retired from the State in September, 2000.
Upon moving back to Tallahassee in 1989, I met Paula Guidry at an American Legion dance. We were married in Hope Town, Abaco, Bahamas on 7/9/97 (a nice easy to remember palindrome).
We lived "full-time" in our fifth-wheel until 2011, when we bought a townhouse in Tallahassee and a manufactured home in Polson, Montana. Now we spend our summers in Montana, and winters in Tallahassee.
After graduation, Paul attended DBJC and Florida State University (Go Noles!), where he earned a BA in English and an MS in Library Science.
He worked at a couple of university libraries, at the State Library of Florida, and at Leon County Public Library in Tallahassee before moving on to CLSI and then Digital Equipment Corp (DEC). After being laid off from DEC in 1994, Paul returned to the State Library of Florida to run the computer systems and networks that kept the library going. He retired from the state in 2000.
In 2003, Paul and his wife, Paula Guidry, sold their home on Oyster Bay in Wakulla County and began to live "full-time" in a 36 foot 5th Wheel trailer and travel about the country.
As of 2009, they spend their summers in Polson, Montana and the winters in Florida, or traveling somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere.
