About me

Industry Museums or Libraries
Location Glendora, California, United States
Introduction I am a 50 year old dancing bear. By day, I work in a public library. By night, well...I sleep! I live with my best friend and the love of my life, DR. I have 5 big kids: Son #1 - Kick Back Dude (28) - who is dad to daughters, Miss Personality (8) & Love Bug (6), and son Little Prince (5), Son #2 - Secret Agent Man (27), Son #3 - Social Animal (24), Daughter - Girlie Girl (20), and Son #4 - Handsome Lad (16).But remember on Everybody Loves Raymond when he says, "It's not really about them."? Yeah, I'm not a mommy blogger (NTTAWWT!)I don't always succeed, but I am trying hard to live my life with joy and purpose.

If you were a wrestler, what would be your finishing move?

My finishing move would be a big, wet kiss. Call it the Kiss of Death. What do you think?
