Bloggers PhotoMy Bio

   What would you like to know?  I’ll cover some of the basics and if you have questions, feel free to ask. Vicki and I have been married for thirty-eight (38) years in August.  I’m a retired school administrator and she continues to serve as a Theatre Arts teacher. We have two (2) adult children who are also teachers and both are happily married. I’m proud to say that everyone holds a Master’s Degree.  We are blessed to have two (2) beautiful granddaughters and do our very best to teach, love and spoil them all at the same time.

    Vicki and I live in a country home in Wichita County in North-Central Texas. I spend my time Farming and writing. I consider my first published book to be a great personal accomplishment. As I Recall, is a collection of short narrative essays and poetry that shares memories from my life. Check it out some day.
