Biography

I am back, been gone awhile, it was needed.

Ok, Let's see .... I am a retired chef, a guitar player and a singer, my college time was spent in several bands and loving the thrill it gave. I was in Ohio at the time, 1975, and prior in high school in Indiana some small time garage band gigs. The band I was in in Ohio, Lickity Split, did a lot of work around Columbus as well as a couple of regional small tours. We opened for Edgar Winter Group, ZZ Top, and Grand Funk in 1975. I will never forget that time of my life. Now I play an acoustic mostly and sing for my grandkids, but if given the chance the road would take me away again.

I was also Military. A Ranger in a LRRP unit (Long Range Recon Patrol) and enjoyed that as well. Yes I know, two sides of a coin, but they have both made me what I am today. I ended my career in the Army as a helicopter (Cobra) pilot. I spent my career in places we never were. If you have a military background you will understand the meaning of this, if not, let's just say the United States Army is never NOT at war. They are just not all declared.

I am was a chef at a Wolfgang Pucks, now retired. I love Italian cooking and love to see peoples faces when they taste my food, always amusing.

Now I am studying to get a CEH cert and start my own business. As well as doing some recording and writing.

I have rambled on long enough. I am looking for friendships and conversations that will help with my writing. As far as other writers, I would be honored to hear from and relate to you. I am an open book, looking for a new life to explore and relish. The old one ended. Time for me to fly.........

Saying Good-bye

    How do you say good-bye to someone like her What do you tell her What can you say She was there when needed most She pulled you back from a certain end She woke up your soul and supported your return One of the two that kept you from taking that step   What do you say How can you tell her what she did for you Would she understand Would she think you daft Or maybe laugh it off...

Turnabout

    Lifting the receiver she dials, waiting as each ring seems to take an eternity, then he answers. "He doesn't suspect a thing. I promise." "But he seems to look at me like he knows. I keep waiting for him to say something." "Don't lose control, he has no idea; I would bet my life on it." "If you're wrong, you already have. You know what he'll do. You've seen him in action." ...

Holding Sweet Dee

We used to have these little get togethers every day, now they are becoming far to rare...

Next Time

That sound. I know it’s the same sound. But am I dreaming or is it really there? I don’t really know anymore. Now what? Do I lay here and consider it last night's pizza giving my imagination something to do? Do I get up and let it happen again? I wonder, if I stay here and don’t check it out, will it start again or is that the trigger? It doesn’t matter, I can’t just lie here. I already wish...
