From the Author
I was is in the U.S. Air Force from 1958 through 1962 and spent the last 2 years stationed in Northern Japan. Our reconnaissance Squadron was sent to Thailand for two months in 1961. I was in the standby Reserves until 1966 and would have been recalled to serve in Vietnam. An auto accident in 1964 left me with a fractured spine. After spending 3 months in the hospital I recuperated at a loving aunt and uncle's house for close to a year. That is when my varied job experiences started with sales, etc. My civilian life was mostly spent driving every type of truck on the road. That was a lot of solo thinking time to share with the world today. I have been blessed with a good life, a wife, four stepdaughters and numerous grandchildren. The outdoors was my life, hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, golf for a while, and gardening. I chose jobs that kept me outside.
Knowing that my physical condition will degenerate until the wheelchair beckons to me, "come and sit down." I prepared for wheelchair life by writing a Blog for the past few years, it covers numerous topics, many are based on my life experiences.Truth is stranger than fiction. Writing gives me a purpose to press on with life. I can still walk with a walker.
