Yes, I do live in Texas, but I have traveled and I try to keep up with the rest of the world. My wife and I have four young grandsons so I tend take the long view of things. I was self-employed as a craftsman for many years and now I travel when I can, I paddle a kayak when the rivers are up, and do a little research and writing. I collect old postcards, hand-made toys, pieces of rusty wire, and other small treasures including quotes from people who are smarter than I am: "He wrapped himself in quotations - as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors." -- Kipling
When time permits I write occasional blog entries about postcards, photographs, or other objects that may range from debris to trophies depending on one’s point of view. I believe they offer enlightening links to other people, places, and times. Perhaps you will agree.
