My Personal Page
I'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a midnight toker... Well, I'm a joker, anyway. The only thing I like to have smoked around me is some ribs or brisket.
One dog, three kids (all are legal adults these days), a wife of almost 20 years. I'm a night owl, having spent the better part of my adult life on the night shift, even when I was in the Army for training. Though, the army stint was cut short due to bad knees.
I hold an AA in psychology, a BA in Emergency and Disaster Management, and am working on an MA in the latter field, too, these days. I'm also working on a graduate certificate in "Human Capital Leadership" aka small team leadership. My end goal is to be a working emergency manager, somewhere in the Pacific Northwest.
I enjoy passionate discussion, even disagreements, as long as the difference does not become personal. That is an instant turnoff. As my blessed mother says, "You can disagree without being disagreeable."
In the next few years, I expect to be training a psychiatric service dog to help me with depression and anxiety issues. That will be quite an adventure!
