I extend my welcome to the pseudononymous GradyPhilpott. Actually, if it isn't too revealing, I'm curious as to the significance of the name?

In any event, enjoy your time here.

Thank you all for the welcome. I found an error in my original post which indicated that I served four years the Marine Corps, from 67-68. That, of course, is impossible and the correct years are 67-71.

About 20 years ago, while living in New Orleans, I dressed up as a wino for Halloweeen. The character was so popular that I also used that character for Mardi Gras and now, living in New Mexico, I use it for Halloween.

Eventually, someone wanted know the name of the character and Grady Philpott was born. When I went on line, it was only natural that I would use that name as a "handle," or "screen name." I've always thought it had a nice ring to it and, yes, there is a sort of double-entendre for the really abstract-thinking among us.
