Here are six random things about me (that you may not know)
1. I have quite a collection of old Bibles and Bible pages dating to 1499
2. I have been married for 33 years to my best friend, who also was the only person I ever dated.
3. On our first date at Elitches Garden in Denver, Colorado I threw up on Gina, and she took me to her house so I could clean up and wash my clothes. We then returned to Elitches, but didn't ride anything other than the train.
4. The only place I have had a story published was a magazine that published the story after I had submitted it, but never told me. Someone saw the story and told me. I have no respect for the magazine.
5. I like to submit pictures to the San Pedro Daily. I read the San Pedro Daily just about every day.
6. I can't grow sideburns under any circumstances. I'm glad the 70's are over.

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
