I was born in the mountains of Oregon in the middle of the 20th century. As a young man living in a world that had little of the physical distractions of life, I learned at an early age to use my imagination. Reading and imagination were my main tools for enjoyment. In later years this proved to be a valuable asset as well as a curse. I developed a mind that never seemed to be satisfied and always searching for something new and exciting. I am a person of many interests as most people are. Here I would like to share a few of those interest with you and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
