Bloggers PhotoWhat do you get with a 57 year old balding guy, happy to be with his soul mate, a blended family of 7 adult children, 4 grand children, a dog, a cat, fish in a backyard pond, and horses in our future?  A lifetime of chaos, adventure and love.  Also, we live in Collingwood Ontario, Canada on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay.
My wife and i are both caregivers (I'm a nurse, Neila works with the developmentaly delayed).  We love tto travel and ride horses.
Much of my writing is drawn from life experiences.  I look forward to sharing them with you.  Cheers!  Rick

Happy Groucho Marx Quotes Day

Blog Posted:3/19/2013 4:53:00 AM
One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas.  How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.

Marriage is a wonderful institution but who wants to live in an institution?

Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.

I intend to live forever or die trying.

I was married by a judge.  I should have asked for a jury.

Those are my principals and if you don't like them....well, I have others.

Yes, they are all corny, but I think Groucho was a comedic genius and his jokes still hold up to our modern day.
Have a happy day, all!

    I didn't realize you lived so close Rick, I came to Collingwood with my husband last year, it's a lovely place to visit, rich with artists and antiques. Next time I must come to say hello, take care, God bless, xxx and thanks for the humor. xxx
