What have I been doing since 1965?

Wow, what a question.

After graduating from DHS, I spent four years at Wabash. Then moved to Atlanta while I was in VISTA. Decided I didn’t really like snow that much and settled here for the long haul.

Bought an old house in an intown neighborhood called Inman Park and got into the wine business after about three years of renovation. Spent 8 years in the wholesale wine business and then opened two retail stores in 1984 and 1986. Did that for many many years and finally closed one of the stores last year. Our daughter Amber runs the other store.

Since getting out of the wine business, I have been buying and renovating houses in East Atlanta. My wife Barbara volunteers at the Church of the Holy Comforter, which ministers to physically and mentally handicapped folks. We are renting our houses to some of the folks from the church who are capable of living independently. We have also bought a piece of property in East Atlanta and plan to build a home there in the next few years. One of our daughters has just bought the property next door and our other daughter will hopefully buy the property on the other side in the next few years. I will be so happy to have a family compound with our girls and would love for our son to be there, but he has apparently been Californicated. He married a California girl last September and lives in LA. Ah well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Over the years, I have also had a lot of fun racing sailboats and then riding bicycles. I had the opportunity to ride from Seattle to Boston in 2002 and had a blast doing it. Yes it took 9 weeks and no my butt didn’t get sore. I have also done bike rides in several countries including England, Scotland, Holland, Belgium, and Italy. These are a few of the countries I have visited with my family.

Life is Good,

Fred Bradshaw
