Mister Beasley is a real-life rocket scientist and radar guy. He went to MIT a long time ago, and he was the first human being to "see" the Grand Canyon of Mars. He lives in the Burbs of Boston with his wife, Penny, daughter Annie, a bird and a few generic goldfish. At 66 years old, he's still playing ice hockey with a bunch of much younger guys. He started with Lionels back in elementary school, switched to HO in middle school, and brought them back to life starting in 2005. Edit, 2013. Annie is now away at college, and I've been given permission to expand my layout in the family room. Sadly, the bird and the goldfish are now deceased.
