About

I was born and raised in north-central Pennsylvania where I lived for over 40 years. In 2001, my wife Cindy and I moved to Jacksonville, FL, where we lived until the fall of 2010 when we moved to western Montana. I’m here, now Montana’s full. There’s no more room.

I dropped out of high school mid-way through 11th grade and have never looked back. I do not have any formal training or education beyond that, except for short, varied classes here and there. Virtually everything I know and have learned has been self-taught, which has been something of a struggle. It seems that I have had to learn by experience, the hard way, and life has dealt me some pretty severe lessons, but I am still here. And still learning. And finally beginning to understand the reason why I went through what I did and what I have to do with it. Perhaps this is what wisdom means.

Cindy has three children which I helped raise and nine grandchildren scattered between Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Japan. We have a dog (black Lab), who has been with us for over 12 years. We also have four nanny goats (waaaaaay down from last year), a small flock of chickens, and raise a large garden each summer. My work for the last 35 years has been in construction, mostly residential. I have an interest in building websites, writing the code myself in HTML and CSS, and also do some dabbling in water color and oil paintings.

And I write. Eventually, I would like to trade in my hammer and tool belt and make a decent living putting my thoughts out there for the entire world to see.
