Hmmm... About Me... I spend way too much time online. I am married to my high school sweetheart. I bore two children.
My daughter is a very cool young woman who is ignoring societal expectations by invading the masculine world of motorcycles, pursuing certification as a mechanic. Not what I expected, but I definitely approve. She makes me proud.
My son passed away at the tender age of 19. He was funny and sensitive and kind and did nothing to deserve a heart that needed repair and an unexpected reaction to anesthesia that was previously tolerated. His absence causes a pain that will never go away. Memories of him make me smile.
I love to cook, especially "comfort foods" like braised lamb shanks and while chili. I believe that apple crisps should never contain oats. Ever. Despite what my oldest brother says, butter tarts should always contain golden raisins. Snickerdoodles are the BEST cookies.
After that one disastrous experience with Gin, I can never drink it again. I don't miss it.
What else do you want to know?
