Welcome to my "Other Interests". My name is Jerry Lindemann and I make my home in Bulverde, Texas, with my wife Lynn, two dogs, a workshop cat, 22 ring neck doves, an aquarium full of fish and a herd of deer. If it sounds like a nature preserve, well it kind of seems like that to us sometimes, too..
When I was about 4-5 growing up in Comfort, Texas, my Dad who owned a Garage, used to hand me an old carburetor or starter motor when I was with him at the shop and encourage me to take it apart and put it back together. (I think that was his idea of day care) That had a profound effect on my future. I learned to instinctively "figure out" how things work. So now when something breaks around the house I don't have to hire (not all the time anyway) someone to fix it. And I thank him for that unique form of home-schooling.
My mother was a gifted artist who tinkered with crafts, ceramic painting and the fine arts of Bluebonnets, she no doubt was responsible for my artistic interests. I hope I can honor her gift in my lifetime.
That loving combination and living in a country environment was a unique catalyst that let me be free to explore anything that clunked, clattered, crawled or flew. And I did so with ernest.
Now I have my own life which I share with an extraordinary woman who keeps my feet on the ground.
