Welcome to my journal! I use this space to capture my thoughts and experiences from day to day, and for special events and activities in my life. I share these thoughts because down the road I’d like my children and grandchildren to know a little more about their Dad and Pop-Pop. I also like to share insights gained from my life experiences in the hope that readers can learn, take heart, and share their own thoughts and ideas on these pages. Encouraging, constructive, and sharing comments are welcome! Dissent is also welcome as long as it is civil, polite, and constructive, with the caveat that shaming, hateful, and other rude and insensitive comments will not be tolerated.
