Welcome to my website where
information and ideas are presented in unconventional ways-- sometimes through stories, sometimes through memories, and sometimes through information. I hope you leave here with ideas and a smile to lighten your step.
Life can be challenging. That's why many people enjoy inspiration and encouragement to start their days. I like to turn to the Bible for answers to problems, then I gravitate toward humor.
While growing up, I especially enjoyed works by Erma Bombeck and Mark Twain. In adulthood, material by Dave Barry, as well as Eddie Jones, Jerry Spinelli, and Jeff Kinney have inspired me to find humor in everyday situations. Those writers, along with comedians Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Tim Hawkins help me to flip life's problems upside down and whittle them into manageable molehills.
Humor is great for encouraging, inspiring, and distracting even the saddest of us from our burdens. It's a far healthier escape than using drugs or other vices. I wonder if some day I might have to stand before an HA (Humorist Anonymous) meeting and confess, "I've been a humor addict for fifty years. It all started after reading "Puddin' Head Wilson" by Mark Twain."
A few Little-known facts about me:
When I'm not busy writing a new tale, I can often be found in the quaint little resort town of Grand Haven, MI where white sand beaches, sidewalk cafes, musical fountains, and weekly live bands accent the waterfront. I also enjoy kicking back on the grassy knoll while watching boats traverse the channel to Lake Michigan.
