This is my first attempt at blogging, so I'm not really sure what to do. A little about me to start with. I'm a 46 year old, Paramedic, presently living in Western Colorado.
I was born in Florida, to a family of 8 children (7 at the time of my arrival). My family moved to Pennsylvania when I was 5 years old (but I found them again).
My Dad was a preacher, in the United Church of Christ. His hobby was stage magic, and I've picked up a few magic tricks over the years. My Mom was a preacher's wife, who also was an artist, woodcarver, poet, and bon vivant. My Dad passed away in 1993 after a long fight with Parkinson's disease, and my mother died in 2006, from organ failure. My brothers and sisters mostly live in Pennsylvania, except for my younger brother Mark (that's a story all of it's own) who lives in Iowa.
My wife Tonjia and I moved to Colorado in 2007. Tonjia wanted to live closer to her family, and not wanting to be left behind, I decided I should move with her. We have a mobile home near Clifton, which is just outside Grand Junction. Tonjia is an RN, and we met on the internet. That's a story for another time as well. Tonjia's daughter Breanna lives with us, and as far as I'm concerned Breanna is my daughter as well.
Our two "boys" are Max, a basset hound, and Frankie, a mini-dachshund.
After some encouragement from Tonjia, I've decided to start my own blog, so that I can add my own observations, and comments from time to time.
I hope that I don't bore everyone with my ramblings.
Good luck and a Happy New Year to everyone.
