I was born in Aruba in 1945. My father transferred to Colombia in 1955 and I lived there with them until 1959 when his assignment was over. Since there were no high schools for us, I went to Miami Senior High School, graduating in 1963. I graduated from Univ. of Tulsa with a BSME in 1967. I married a local girl, accepted a job in Nederland, TX. Later I accepted a new job in Conroe, TX. After 10 years as plant engineer, I transferred to Houston where I was a buyer of mechanical equipment for all over the world. I retired in 2000.
I was divorced in '89 after 22 yrs. After 3 years as a single parent, I met the most wonderful lady. Altogether we have 5 kids, 4 married and 9 grandkids. Diagnosed with PD in 1998, I had a DBS in 2006, the same time as Marty developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma which she beat back temporarily. Then she developed a chromosomal abnormality that left her white cell count nil.
I began writing as a kid. In high school I was renowned for off-the-wall papers. In the 70's, 80's and 90's I managed to get lots of letters published in the local paper, including a few political cartoons.
I turned song-writing and making to have an outlet for music and to have a hobby that I enjoyed besides fishing. Beginning in 2009, I have settled on irony as my initial topic. I still make tunes with a twist, but I have branched out as the people of M ixposure chat have given me confidence by their reviews and listening to what my songs have to say, if anything.
