Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Don Paulsen


Enrolled in Fall 1963 Semester St. Pete Jr. College for an AS in Electronics. By Summer of 1965 I was one English Comp Course and one Political Science Course from graduating and working full time at Babcock & Wilcox in St. Pete designing boilers for power generation. I had put in an application at IBM in Tampa and one night arriving home from work, there was a telegram on the door knob from IBM wanting to interview me in Cocoa Beach to work on the Space Program. I went over to the interview, got the job and started my first day at Kennedy Space Center on November 1, 1965. I worked at the Space Center on the Apollo/Saturn Moon Program until 1969, when a slow down came about due to budget cuts from the Feds. I decided it was a good time to take a leave of absence from IBM to get my BS Degree, so I did that. Moved back to St. Pete, lived with my parents and enrolled at USF to get my Electrical Engineering Degree. Graduated in 1971 with my EE (Minor in IE and CS) and went back to work at the Cape (still with IBM) on the Shuttle Program. From then on it was various jobs with IBM in Manassas, VA, Poughkeepsie, NY, Boca Raton, Fl and lots of travel. (IBM=I've Been Moved). I put in 30 years with IBM, retired as a Advisory Engineer November 1, 1995 and have been loving life more ever since.
Chris (my wife) and I met in 1989 and after a long courtship got married on the 11th. anniversary of our first date in 2000. When we met, while both living in Boynton Beach, Fl., I told Chris that I was not crazy about South Fl. and had future plans of moving to 5 acres of land I had bought in 1979 in North Central Fl (High Springs). So, as it turned out, fast forward to 2002 when we moved to High Springs, lived in a motel efficiency for 2+ months while I cleared the house site in the middle of the land, put in well/septic and electric, then moved our RV onto the property. Then we spent the next 16 months working with a contractor to build the house I designed. Living in a 30 foot RV for 16 months is a trip for sure. But, I was there to ram-rod every block, nail and board that went into the house.
We love to live in the country where it's quiet and peaceful. The small town of High Springs is just 5 miles away and has enough shopping for everyday stuff. When we want something more, we drive 25 miles South to Gainesville (Go Gators) or Lake City to our North.
I designed my workshop to be attached right to the house, is under A/C-Heat, full bath and is home to both of my beer tapers. I'd not had a dog since leaving home at 20 as living in apartments a lot and traveling it was not practical. So, Chris and I got "Pal", our 13 inch Beagle in 2007 and he gives us a lot of laughs. We both like to cook (and eat), so the house has a very large kitchen with island. Chris retired when we left South Florida, so we both just enjoy kicking back to do whatever blows our skirts. We take short road trips to see the sights and/or visit old friends. Enjoy our small town where people actually take the time to get to know you and talk when seeing each other.
I never had any kids, but I inherited a son when meeting Chris. We now have Twin Granddaughters, 9 years old, that live in Lakeworth, Fl; so either they have to come up here or we have to go down there several times per year. Our Son is a Cop in Delray Beach and can't wait to retire also, to move his family to TN where they have 40 acres to start to do what his Mom and I are doing.
Life is good and we hope it stays that way for many more years for us to enjoy it. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the 50th. Reunion very soon.
