Growing up in the 50s formed who I became—playing outside, building tree forts, playing army, and hiking through the foothills of California. Life was wholesome and simple. The 60s changed us. I became a “Grunt” in that crazy Asian war. After returning home in a stealthy manner, I soon got married and became a masonry contractor. With my body worn after 23 years, I retired my trowel and became a tool distributor for the next 20-plus years.
Cancer forced my retirement, and after that battle, my wife and I relocated to northern Arizona. My life is a sweet mixture of my wife, kids, and grandchildren. My time is spent gazing through my office window at the vast desert landscape while I ponder, I’m an author!!? Life is good!
