Hi, my name is Steven Fletcher I'm married to Fran Crawford.

I was born and raised in Yuba City, California. With the exception of three years spent in Uncle Sam's Yacht Club (U.S. Navy) I've lived there all my life. That probably explains my longing to hit the road!

I did time... uh... I mean served in the U.S. Navy from 1966 to 1969 aboard the USS Weiss (APD 135). If you or someone you know was a Weiss Guy I'd like to hear from you. If you're interested in such things I've compiled a few web pages about the ship and my time aboard.

I've worked at a lot of different jobs over the years... mostly self-employed. I worked in a peach cannery, bagged groceries, installed burglar alarms and sold electronics at Radio Shack. I and my brother Glenn had a vending machine business for a couple years then I and Fran had a stained glass studio for a few years. From 1990 to early 1997 Fran and I operated a sign business. Now we're doing some freelance web design and maintain our own web sites. Well, Fran is the writer but with her help I manage to get by.

I'm a computer nut ... I'm not smart enough to be a computer nerd! My first computer was a Radio Shack TRS 80 purchased back in 1977. It was a model 1 but only after RS came out with other models. That Trash 80 had 4k... that's kilobytes not megabytes... of memory and used a cassette recorder to store programs and data files! But, I still believe it was the best personal computer of it's day. A lot more functionality than the old Apple II. The TRS80 didn't have color and you couldn't play goofy games on it so Apple won. That's okay though because Apple developed the Mac.

I have to give Fran credit for recognizing the potential of the new computer from Apple. She was one of the first to own a Macintosh back in April 1984. It had 128K of memory! Who could have imagined needing more? (Hard drive? no way! but it did have those cute little 3.5" disks that cost $5 each if you bought a box of 10) . One of our grandsons has that original Mac (upgraded to a Plus) now. Anyway, I've been a Mac nut ever since.

Nowadays we're both using iMacs and we still love our computers. Trying to shoehorn both desktops into the RV wasn't easy but His and Hers was the only way to stay married so we did it!

While computers mey be my main hobby I do enjoy woodcarving and making mountain dulcimers.
