Enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, and playing guitar.

Latest book I am reading is Bomber Pilot. chronicles Jimmy Stewart's war time experience.

Roman Catholic.

I also believe in the goodness of our Country. I am so proud of what our previous generations have accomplished. We are not a perfect Country, but I believe we have done more good for this earth than any other Country in existence!


It's a mighty good world, so it is, dear lass,
When even the worst is said.
There's a smile and a tear, a sigh and a cheer,
But better be living than dead.
A joy and a pain, a loss and a gain,
There's honey, and maybe some gall:
Yet I still declare, foul weather or fair,
It's a mighty good world after all.

For look lass! at night when I break from the fight,
My Kingdom's awaiting for me;
There's comfort and rest, and warmth at your breast,
And little ones climbing my knee.
There's fire-light and song-Oh the world may be wrong!
Its empires may topple and fall:
My home is my care-if gladness be there,
It's a mighty good world after all.

O heart of pure gold! I have made you a fold,
It's sheltered, sun-fondled and warm.
O little ones rest! I have fashioned a nest!
Sleep on! You are safe from the storm.
For there's no foe like fear, and there's no friend like cheer,
And sunshine will flash at our call;
So crown love as King, and let us all sing;It's a mighty good world after all.

- Robert Service
