STILLLL ALIVE AND DOING GREAT!

February 1, 2019 by David McLellan (Register to contact)

Checking in to let y'all know after retiring from THE United States Air Force in 2005, I am doing great! I'm a "working retiree", because I can't sit still. I drive a Freightliner M2 "Bidness Class", 20 foot, six wheel flatbed truck through out north Georgia AND around the ATL, for a small stainless steel bidness in Gainesville, GA. I finally found my "soul mate", after divorcing my first wife ("Satans Sister"). Married my soul mate in 2005...adopted her daughter from her first marriage...we begat a daughter in late 2005....life's great! I have three sons (David, Jr, Nathan Charles, and Brandon Scott) from my first marriage. I still enjoy building models, playing drums and reading non-fiction and history books.
