Welcome to the world of samboiam. I am so glad you chose to visit my life in a nutshell, or should I say in a hubpage. This would be where I impart a tidbit about why I am samboiam. By day I am employed with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. By night I am a husband, lover, father and friend. Have you ever watched the “Dukes of Hazzard”? Well, I don’t look anything like them and I certainly am not sliding across the hood of any cars, unless by accident. But the theme song, that’s a little closer to home. I’m just a good ole boy, never meaning no harm…just a fun loving kinda guy that likes to put a smile on the faces of those I’m around. Laughter does the body good. Probably “gooder” than milk.

For the past 19 years I have been adding to the gray hairs on my beautiful wife’s head. I have not done this by myself, our two teenage boys have contributed as well. Life is great. I probably enjoy it more now than ever.

Recently I have added blogging to my repertoire. This could be due to the fact that I am now the BIG 4-0 or because I have an overrated opinion of what I have to say. Whatever the reason, I feel the need to express myself. I, by no means, claim or pretend to be a professional. I simply want to utilize my right to make heard the voices inside my head, so please be patient with me.

Hopefully, you will find samboiam humorous and/or thought provoking. I have found it is easier to take a closer look at myself if I don’t take myself too seriously, maybe, in my endeavors you will do the same.

Other places to find me on the web.
