I walk for exercise. I have an enormous potential for story line creation. I can think up projects with out even trying. I have alot of ideas I want to use down the road for books.

My growing up years----- (Life-- outside town).,
I attended -public schools- Participated in after school local events and charities . My grandfather on my mom's side, sponsored me for church & scouts. An avid out door's kind of ki,. I walk and roam the woods and fields just about everywhere. I had every pet imaginable. The usual stuff by most people's standards-The --dogs,cats,rabbits. - Racing pigeons were a common thing - bought and donated by my dad. I loved the wild creatures as well--Garter snakes and Salimanders, I often times had aquariums with minnows and cray fish in my bedroom. I loved looking for frogs and turtles. Some times --I'd spend hours in the heat of summer on the opposite side of our property in a stream tributary of the Brandywine. I walk just about everywhere when the weather was right. I'd shoe leather north to a farm about 6 miles away. It was owned my grandparent's on my dad's side. My Grandpop Phillips --left me learn horse back riding and the milking of a cow. During these times They had occasional live stock. Born into what later became a divorcing parent environment, I was afforded everything imaginable as the first long term surviving grandson. Microscopes, Erector sets, Chemistry sets. Telescopes, Radio building kits and tons of other neat things. Mother would give me money on Saturday to see a movie at our local --Y.M.C.A/movie theatre. Cowboy flicks were frequent in those days. I would opt out finding them adult entertainment and boring. Walk to Coatesville change streets and spend the early afternoon in our Public library. I still to this day love and frequent quite a bit.(of course- its not the same building and alot newer a place). I would also go swimming and bowling. ( coincidently in the basement of the town Y.M.C.A).
I attended Roman Catholic mass with my mom's family from 7 years of age, rarely missing a Sunday. In those days it was still in Latin. As time went on, I took private airplane lessons. Solo'd on my 10th hour of instruction at Lancaster County Airport. Then for a good while flew around enjoying my new found flying freedom. I Later purchased 3-acres of property in the mountain's of Roulette Township just West of Coudersport, Pa.-(Potter County), Served in the U.S Navy then upon returning from active service-- enlisted an additional year in the Airforce National Guard of Newcastle Delaware). I was married for what lasted the better part of 20 years. I cherish an afternoon with my 25 year old daughter. We usually have dinner in a restaurant then shop a mall somewhere.
