About me

Gender Male
Location Atlanta
Introduction I grew up in a family of Southern storytellers, headed to Chicago for college, and married a young lady from Boston, gaining a second family there in the process. Growing up, I also spent lots of time with family in Southern California. I suppose my thinking, writing and conversing reflect a blend of viewpoints from all over the map, but whatever your current geolocation, I hope you enjoy your time here.

What's the earliest you've gotten up to watch cartoons and what did you see?

6:00 AM to watch Thunderbirds (OK, so not a real cartoon).
