The material on this website is here for your pleasure.
You will never be asked to buy anything, join a mailing list, or provide personal information. If you enjoy the stories, that’s good enough for me—it’s my way of “paying it forward” for the great life I enjoy.
Quote, witticism, or thought for the day:
If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you’ve got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in the throat, and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of lump. One needs to learn the difference. -Robert Fulghum
A Little More About Myself . . .
If anybody cares . . .
I was born in 1940 and saw a lot of the world courtesy of the US Navy and careers in electronics, aviation, and the oil patch.
I Iost Mary Lee—my wonderful wife of 38 years—to cancer in 2003.
Via a bit of subterfuge by my younger sister, I discovered that my first love was now a widow. After a bit of correspondence and a hefty investment in Telus, I visited her and found the spark still alive. After exchanging vows in 2005, Rochelle and I bought a home in Red Deer, Alberta.
I still marvel at my good fortune: While many men spend their entire lives searching for the right woman, I have enjoyed the love of two fine ladies. In a time when many people have strained relationships with their children, I can say that my three grown daughters are my best friends.
