(Bio submitted May, 2007)

Well itís 2007 more than 40 years and if Iíd known I was gonna live this long I would have taken a heck of a lot better care of myself. Of course on the other side of the coin. I still wonder where all those years went. I can remember them but it donít seem that long ago.

I went into the Army in Jan 66, learned to work on telephone (central office) systems, got out in 68 and traveled around the country until 71 when I took a job on phone systems in Vietnam (as a civilian). I also spent a little time in the Marshall Islands and the Philippines . In the years I transitioned from central office to office telephone systems and finally in 94 I decided to change and went to work on something less stressful. Computers!  Did technical support and help desk until 2001 when my eyes started failing on me.

 Iíve kind of wandered all over the place. Now I think Iíve finally decided to stay where I am. I live in the Reno/Sparks NV area. (almost on the city limits of both). One of the reasons I think Iím gonna stick around here is that the bus service is good, and I canít see across the street anymore without a pair of binoculars.  I also use the same binoculars to read the menu at McDonalds and Wendyís.
