Do you know me?  I don’t think so.  All you see is my Images and what they are about from where I go and what I do.  Well, maybe you might be interested in what I’m like.

WHO AM I? –  I am a 70 yrs. young male that stands 6’5″ tall and weighs about 262 lbs.

AM I EASY GOING & EASY TO TALK TO? – Yes that I am.  I am a person that can easily be talked to.  I have a pretty good personality, if I must say so.  I don’t get mad real easy.  It takes a bit to push the wrong button, but if that happens all hell will break loose.

DID I SERVE IN THE MILITARY? –  Yes.  Joined the US Navy just after High School.  Served aboard the Destroyer USS Carpenter DD-825 for 2.5 yrs. stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Had a 1 yr. Tour of Vietnam from 1966 – 1967.

WHAT DID I DO FOR A LIVING?  –  After being discharged from the US Navy, I got a job at the Polymer Corp. in Feburary of 1969.  I was just a Machine Operator for about 8 yrs. working swing shifts.  Changing from 1 shift to another every week, about did me in!  Then went to Machinist School for 4 yrs. to learn the trade. The GI Bill paid for my schooling. Spent my remaining years at Polymer as a Class A Plastic Machinist.  Retired after 30 yrs. there.  Then I worked at a fast food place named Schells Drive In for 14 yrs. as a cook.  Then I retired for good!

WHAT ARE MY FAVORITE FOODS? – There are a number of them.  Seafood is my real favorite.  Clams, oysters, fish, scallops, and Lobster.  Steak is on the menu, also.  I can eat most everything, except Liver, Okra, Spinach, Liver Pudding, and Peas.  Not too fond of that stuff.  Liver I can’t get past my nose!

WHAT DO I ENJOY DOING? – I enjoy Photography, as you can see.  I like to play a good game of Golf, when I can afford it.  Read a good book, but it has to hold my interest from the very beginning.  I enjoy going out shooting, once in a while, at a target range.  Just going “out there” with my camera to see what’s new.  Keeping my Home in good shape.  Mowing the grass and what ever else should be done.  Going to a good Concert, when I can.  Making something in my small wood shop when it’s warm enough.

DO I HAVE ANY CHILDREN? –  Yes, I have 1 Daughter named Michelle Lynn born October 8th, 1973, but my Daughter is a whole different story.  I haven’t seen her in 20 yrs.!  I am not happy about this!

WHERE HAVE I BEEN IN MY LIFE? – While serving in the Navy, I was all over the Pacific from Hawaii, to Midway, to the Philippines, to Vietnam, to Japan, to Okinowa, to Pago Pago, to Sydney, Australia, to Auckland, NZ.  I’ve seen things that most people will never see.  Allot of it is good, some horrible, and some bad.  In the US, all up and down the east coast.

Well, folks, that should give you a pretty good idea of what/who I am that writes this.  Any questions?  Just ask.
