Here is a little bit about me.
I'm in my early 40's - married with wonderful kids.
When I was 4, I drowned. My Father pulled me out of the frozen water and revived me on the beach. A lifelong military man, he told me that I was
"dead" - cold and blue, not breathing, no heartbeat. I don't remember any of it - sorry guys, no warm light at the end of the tunnel or
Halfway through my senior year in High School my parents house burned down. We lost everything. My family went to stay at my grandparents house, but I
was "too cool". I ended up spending the rest of the school year living in my car. (Long story as to why I didn't go to my parents for help.) It was
pretty cool actually. The church donated so many clothes, that it was a non issue. I would get to school early, run around the track, and shower in
the Gym. My biggest regret is that there are no pictures of me before the age of 18. I would love to get my hands on a copy of my yearbook.
After graduation, I met a woman and fell madly in love with her. She was taken from me by a drunk driver just 4-1/2 weeks before we were to be
married. It's been 2 decades now, yet I'm still not over that.
I was lead singer in a band for quite awhile. I play guitar, but I'm not very good at it. I've won awards for track and field, graphic design, and
my Bakery won a "Best of Philly" award. (Using my own recipes!)
Overall my life is great. I have no complaints, and I NEVER EVER sweat the small stuff. I, as well as my family have great health (Thank God).
Now if only the Eagles could win the Super Bowl..........
