I'm devilish but harmless.
Outside of that I'm still the same crotchety, old, sarcastic, humorous, young at heart curmudgeon. If that doesn't scare you off, good. I welcome contacts with anyone. I've written enough now to realize I'm hopelessly addicted to it. I'd welcome any comments and/or criticism on my stories or even just on me.

Making it to my next birthday while enjoying life, the love of my wife, my sons, grandkids, and greatgrandkids.

Favorite Books
I'm a voluminous reader, up to five books a week for over 60 years, so there's not enough space to list all my favorites.

Favorite Authors
Same answer as above.

Favorite Movies
I'm not a great movie buff. I did enjoy the Harry Potter ones and the Hobbit series, so you can see why I say I'm young at heart.
Or maybe, just childish.

Favorite Music
Classical, 50's ballads, swing. Showing my age again.
