About Me

I'm just a guy who knows how to enjoy a pink lemonade, and realizes the importance of the position of the little finger while doing so. I write a monthly perspective/humor column for Houseboat Magazine, and some of my stories and articles have appeared in various magazines and anthologies, including Chicken Soup for the Soul, Whispers from Heaven, and others. However, copywriting and marketing work pays most of the bills, at least until my book takes off. Oh, wait, I don't have a book. Dang.

I'm married for 37 years to Roxanne, have two daughters and two grandkids, a BMW K1200LT motorcycle (Canyon Red, by far the fastest color) and a 40' houseboat named the Phoenix.

Random Question -- Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

Whistling with wood, of course. Why? In a general sense, almost anything is more pleasurable with wood. Except maybe riding a bike.
