    Oldest of five brothers, I was the one who got away with everything. Spent thirty years as a Navy Reservist. People say I'm a little crazy. Thank God, normal people lead mundane lives. My greatest love is kids and I spend weekends working with abused kids with psychiatric problems almost always created by adult animals. I like music, mostly country and early rock. Married for forty years (my wife will be given the Medal of Honor) and have four kids, a 36 and 35 year old and two 23 year olds. The twins are a boy and girl. Including me, my wife has five. Got 5 grand kids. I'm big on amusement parks and would work for Mickey and Donald any day. I've seen a lot of the world (14 countries) and definitely miss the travelling with the Navy. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer. I love this planet, so I'm going to stay awhile. I do believe war could be a necessity only in defense of your country and not as an excuse to prospect for oil. I believe that if there is any honesty or integrity in Washington, the guy is in the wrong city. People I most admire include Jimmy Carter, JFK and Billly Graham. I'm pro-life and anti- political correctness. I think the problem with political jokes is that most of them get elected.


Be Back Soon

I'll be back next week. Just spending some time in Florida with my daughter. We'll be flying back this weekend from 80 degrees to a snow storm. Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! Borrowed a computer for a few minutes. Just want to wish everyone on the site a <font color="#006400">Merry</font> <font color="#ff0000">Christ</font><font color="#006400">mas.</font> I found this site by accident a couple of years ago and as luck would have it, ran into some of the most wonderful people. Life's a continual learning experience and this has been a tremendous inspiration for me, often standing in awe of the courage and warmth I've seen on Poetry Soup. God Bless All. <br>

    Well have a wonderful trip!! I envy even a weekend in 80-degree weather!! We're going through our 2nd blizzard conditions in a week and freezing rain is coming this weekend ... kind of unusual for Eugene but I guess its kind of weird all over except in Florida ... You too have a great holiday and hope '09 is a good year for you and yours!!
