Bio James

Church, writing, tennis, playing with great grandkids
Brother of John, Gene and Florence (all deceased)
Lover of my bride, Marie of 64 years, son Larry, daughter Pam
Who feels old in body, young in spirit, yet ambitious though an octogenarian
Who fears snakes, earth quakes and inadvertently stepping on toes
Who would like to see Israel, my book as a best seller, and another flea market
Resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma

    HI James, so nice to get to know you. I can empathize with feeling old in body and young in spirit. Nice lines. I have seen Israel, beautiful clean cities, but a bit scary. Good luck with your wishes. take care Lee
