Sitting here in front of a computer screen on a sunny, seems to be a fall like weather day glancing out of the window blinds of the Section 8 apartment one bedroom that I share with my wife here in Carson City that is in a continual state of renovation inside & outside and, who knows when it will be completed? Or, what it will look like when it's finally completed. Retiree , retiree, fixed income, trying to stretch a dollar until it snaps back into your face. I entered the janitorial field in 1978 and bounced around from Kansas City, Mo to California Sonoma County & back to South Lake Tahoe & then on to Sparks, Nv & to Reno, NV and finally back to South Lake. Worked in Casinos, hospitals, Federal Courthouses, Restaurants, and grocery stores and finally, finally, officially, retired in 2019. That's a long stretch for anybody considering that was my legitimate profession. Now, on the other hand, I began playing music professionally, that is to say that I was paid for my services & even joined the Musicians Union starting in1969. The world of bars, truck stops, music festivals, touring, traveling round in a van for short money. All that ended around 1978 but I still wrote songs, recorded, put music out there. And now, here in 2021, sixty nine years old, I'm still here. Never be a house hold name, not really in the game, no fortune, no fame, but it's all the same cause I like a good story as much as the next guy. How about you?
