Howdy all, My name is Fred and I am now from Albert City, Iowa a small town of about 700 people. I am originally from a small town in Texas, Dallas....well actually Arlington but have lived in Iowa now for almost 20 years.
I am married with 3 kids, I do not like the term stepchildren so I never refer to them as step but instead I say I have 3 kids. I also have 6 grandkids with one on the way ages 7 to 1. Oldest 2 are much like how I refer to my kids but they ALL call me grandpa so I love it.
I am a BIG Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers fan which in some areas isnt that big a deal, but up here I am the only Rangers fan I have found.
I am losing my eyesight due to a disease called ocular hystoplasmosis, it is very similar to macular degeneration. When we first found out about my eyesight it was recommended that i develop a hobby, so my wife bought me my first gas grill and much like any hobby I can never have enough. That was five years ago and now I have a gas grill, 2 chargriller offsets, an 18 WSM and a Big Steel Keg.
I am like a fisherman when it comes to BBQ, I can talk for hours and even tell a tale here and there. Look forward to yapping with you all in the future.
