Hello, My site name is "stumpy". No, I am not an amputee. I am an American, and proud to be a "natural" born child of an Immigrant. I grew up in the Los Angeles area, with some of the "rich and famous", of which I am not. I spent 4 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, "class of '65'-69'. I also spent 12 years as a cop with the L.A. Co. Sheriff's dept. until the "political correctness" got to me back in 1981.

One of my favorite poems The Making of Friends by Edgar A. Guest "Life is sweet because of the friends we have made. And the things which in common we share; We want to live on, not because of ourseleves, but because of the ones who would care. It's living and doing for somebody else On that all of life's splendor depends, And the joy of it all, when we count it all up, Is found in the making of friends.
