My individual journey through life began in late 1947 when I was conceived by My mother and father. On August 3, 1948 I experienced my first breath of air outside of the womb. Since then I have traveled down many varied paths from scoring the winning touchdown in high school to spending a grueling "Tour of Duty" in Vietnam. I fought the communists in the late 1960's and lived in their midst in the middle 1990's. There have been many highs and lows, but my life goes on because there is a divine purpose. These pages are a snapshot of my past, present and future. My hope is that you enjoy them. If you've tread on similar trails then please share your experiences with me. If not, then please sign my Guestbook anyway.

I've Composed a New Page on Photos Taken on My Missionary and Personal Trips Back to S.E. Asia in the 90's.  I caught this little Tribal Girl Watching me During a Medical Clinic in Tchepone, Laos...

I utilized a Free Lycos Guestbook for over 10 years. It had over 1,500 posts.
On April 5, 2012 I noticed that the Guestbook was gone.
It turns out the Lycos said that they notified all Guestbook owners in February 2012
that they were closing them in April.  I did not receive any email from them or I
would have tried to save all of the posts for you all to peruse.
Sorry...!
