Me, in a nutshell…
I’m a dad in his late 30’s, married with a young, happy son, a slightly smaller but just as jovial daughter, a cat and too much stuff in his basement. We live on an island off the coast of Maine and are a bit odd in some ways, but then again… aren’t we all?
After running my own business for ten years, I finally decided to sell the shop and become a full time stay at home dad. A decision I have never regretted one bit. The hours are brutal but the job satisfaction is huge! Politically, I skew Libertarian. My own views are that if what you’re doing doesn’t hurt anyone, then it’s fine in my book. I’m a social liberal and a fiscal conservative. I like to shoot high powered rifles but will take the time to set a ladybug I find in my house free. I like the idea of socialized medicine but distrust government intensely. I totally support the rule of law yet love the Founding Fathers or our country for being the treasonous bunch of law breakers they were. I’m full of contradictions and rather like it like that. Basically, I figure that as long as I’m ticking off everyone, I’m right where I should be.
What will you find here? Good stuff, mostly. That is to say, I like to write about the good things in life. The daily grind can wear anyone down and I think there are plenty of blogs who take care of the complaining and “issues” we face all the time. My goal is to keep things fun, interesting or at the very least, thoughtful. I hope you enjoy the ramblings. I’m having a great time jotting them down.
I refer to my son here as Short Stack, my daughter as Lulu Belle and my wife as Action Girl. They are the center of everything to me. Action Girl and I have been together for over twenty years now and still seem to have a lot to talk about every day.
I am also an…
Good guy to call in a pinch,
and Husband, Father, Son and Grandson.
I’ve been writing here for almost two years now, so it’s a pretty good vein to tap. Pick up and read where you will. I hope you’ll enjoy.
