Writer in Barton, Vermont
Ron. is primarily a poet living in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, land of the fur-bearing lake trout and the bilingual stop sign. From his front yard, he could easily throw a stone into Canada but has learned, from bitter experience with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, that doing so is considered a hostile action.
A reasonable sample of his published work can be found at EGGS OVER TOKYO: http://eggsovertokyo.blogspot.com
Like most folks with an abundance of time on their hands, Ron. blogs; and because he likes to keep things eggish, he calls his blog SCRAMBLED, NOT FRIED: http://rlavalette.wordpress.com
He's not quite dead yet.
