My eight year marriage anniversary is coming on June 21st. It’s a long story how Carole and I got together, but it’s a great story. I don’t have enough time to write the whole thing out in this article, but just know that she is my rock and is a very special wife, mother and grandmother.

She's a hard working woman that is a business woman too. She and her first husband Mijo Kovac were in the restaurant business for years. Everyone remembers and loved Mijo’s Diner. That diner was noted as one of the best in Mid-Michigan. The Pandemic closed Mijo’s Diner after 20 plus years that she ran with my stepson Tony Kovac.

Carole and I are now embarking on a new life and adventure moving to Cedar Bluff, Alabama on Tuesday. This is a big time game changer. I can’t wait. But I can say my wife is a very special lady and I’m a very lucky guy to call her my wife.

I could go on forever about my wife and how thankful I am she came into my life.

But my other lady in my life is our Pot Cake dog we got from the Humane Society through my friend Penny. Penny came to the radio station and said, “David there are a few dogs we got from Nassau, Bahamas.” I said, "C’mon seriously?!" She said yes and that they're called Pot Cake because people in the Caribbean feed them baked rice and beans that are burned on the bottom of pots.

Our dog Missy was a stray in Nassau and rescued. It was an act of God she came into our lives. Missy is a hybrid dog that is so athletic, smart and just a character. I am really a very fortunate and appreciative soul with a great wife and a great doggie.

Cedar Bluff here we come!
