This isn't FaceBook, so I'm not going to itemize my life history. But in a nutshell, I was born in Denver, Colorado in 1947.
     Denver is only a couple hundred miles from Roswell, NM. There were some pretty strange things going on down in Roswell in 1947 also. Everytime I visit brother Larry in Vegas, I think about going up to Area 51 to learn about my real parents. But Larry doesn't think they'd let me back out.
     In 1967 at the tender age of 20, I won an all-expenses paid trip to Southeast Asia. I thought about turning the offer down, but figured I'd have a better chance making it out of VietNam than jail or Canada.
     I hung around in the Army for awhile and got to see come cool places and things. I spent a year and a half at Cape Kennedy where I watched dozens of rockets go off including 4 Apollo launches. I also spent 3 years in Germany and visited Holland, Luxembourg, France, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Upon leaving Germany, I was assigned to the Armed Forces Examination & Entrance station in Charlotte, NC where I finished my military career.
     I stayed in Charlotte and earned AA degrees in BusinessManagement and DataProcessing. I was a mainframe programmer for 25 years working for some very cool companies: JP Stevens, Gerber, and adidas. I met a great lady from Charlotte and we've been married for 30 years. We moved to Greenville, SC from 1983-1997, then moved back to the Charlotte area and bought a house with 8 acres 20 miles outside of Charlotte.
     I live with 4 females - Debbie, Maggie, Butch, and Sundance. It gets scary at times, but I can always get away from it all by saddling up  my faithful tractor - MarthaMyDeere.
    
     So, that's the nutshell. Of course you have to know or assume there are missing details. I've lost friends and relatives, been through a handful of surgeries, and had my share of down times. But that's life and we all go through those experiences. The down times are not the subject of this website. This web site is about keeping on and that's what I'm doing.
     Being retired, I don't make much money, but I don't really need much. Debbie still works and I keep up the farm. As long as I'm caught up on yardwork, laundry, and occasional dusting - I can feel free to wander around the countryside taking pictures of goats or whatever I feel like doing.    
Skeleton Alert!
     I've been living in my own little cave for long enough and am coming out occasionally lately. But I like the safety and security of my cave so will always keep one foot in the doorway.
Everyone has skeletons in their closet. I've got a feeling this website will bring some skeletons out of my closet.
     If you're a friendly skeleton, I'm glad you found me. We'll talk, we'll do lunch?
     But if you're a scary skeleton, please stay away! There's a valid reason why I've left you in the closet.
