Today, He lives a retirement senior lifestyle of a "minimalist" with the very simple pleasures of a world that needs tranquility, less stress, financial worries, credit card debt and materialism of "unnecessary things" in the human being of today's modern age. His biggest joy in life is sharing his unique White House years with people from all walks of life. He is truly a unique "All American Male".
