About Me

Welcome to my world. A little bit about me.

I'm temporarily (we hope) retired due to some serious sleep issues which cropped up after a triple bypass and complications left me with one working lung. Still, the PettyBees (PTB's = Powers That Be) deem me ineligible for disability ... and so it goes.

I've been married to my second wife, for six years now. I routinely refer to her as SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed - blame 'Rumpole of the Bailey' for it, I just borrowed the term.)

I have two stepchildren from my previous marriage, she has four kids, between us we have 10 grandchildren with twins on the way. Not bad for someone who's never sired a zygote in his life...

I'm an opinionated SOB, politically somewhere to the right of Atilla the Hun if Atilla was fiscally conservative, socially liberal and prone to pronouncements from on high! [grin]

We'll get along just fine if you don't bait me about (dis)organized religion and SCT's (stupid christian tricks). I'm pro-abortion, pro-choice, and have no desire to see the likes of my Congress Critters getting their greasy hands on Social Security. (It might be imperfect, but we must never lose sight of the fact Social Security was created as a safety-net for widows and children and unfortunate souls, such as myself, who have no other resources to draw on in their old age.)

Let's see -- we've covered sex, religion and money. Is there a punch bowl nearby I can pee in?
