Thanks for showing up!

  • I write on the back porch with the help of the neighbor’s cat.
  • Delphine, my wife of 39 years, died of cancer in 2000, and I miss her every day.
  • Two years later, I married Vickie. Every day I thank the Lord for Vickie. We taught English in China then retired ten miles from the Alabama Coast.
