About Me

I am a 59 year old ex-Navy man.  Currently, I work as a handyman for a local country club.  I have been writing poetry for a number of years, starting with a very first poem in my 8th Grade Creative Writing Class back in 1966.  I enjoy most types of music, but my passion is the four part harmony of a barbershop quartet.  I dabble with a little story writing, and have helped people with editing their works, along with helping some with resume writing for job searches.  I've had a couple of strokes over the years, along with a loss of about half of my eyesight.  Still, I do okay with a keyboard and a slightly large screen on the computer.  In the military, I was an administrative specialist, so the typewriter is easier to use now than trying to hand write.  I have a number of poems to add to the site as time goes on, and hopefully will be able to afford an effort to publish a small poetry or story book.
