I am just a regular old guy.
My production date was in 1951.
My expiration date is know only to GOD.
Married in 1976.
3 kids and 2 grandkids.
2 kids adopted as infants and 1 the old fashioned way.
I refuse to live my life in fear.
My family has been in Georgia since the days of James Oglethorpe.
A really big boat is named for a distant relative of mine (CVN70).
My Dad was a Merchant Marine during the "big war".
He sailed the Atlantic and the Pacific on Liberty Ships.
I was ARNGUS 1971-1977.
I trained as a medical corpsman but I ended up driving an M113.
I am now retired from Georgia-Pacific Corporation after 25 years.

What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.
It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
"The American Revolution began long before the war commenced.
The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people.
This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people
was the real American Revolution."
"I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia.
It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
But perhaps there is a key to understanding.
The key is that Russia will do what they believe
is in their own national interest."
~Winston Churchill-1939 (2 months before Russia invaded Finland)
Many things are riddles wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma and are simply unknowable.
I often ask myself: Who am I and why am I here?
Lots of conspiracy nuts of FR now...
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear,
And disregards the rest.
~"The Boxer"-Simon & Garfunkel
Nothing else to see here...
Move along, move along...
