Old Patriot's Pen

Personal pontifications of an old geezer born 200 years too late.

I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Between doctor's appointments, trying to keep up with things at home, getting ready for Thanksgiving, and trying to finish a 50,000-word novel before November 30th, I haven't had much time to work on my blog. The novel is about 4/5 done. By the time the Thaksgiving weekend is over, I should be over the 50,000-word mark, and into the last chapter. Once I've finished it and proofed it, I'll post it to my regular webpage, where my other novels are. This month has not been the best to try to write a novel during, but I'll finish before the due date. The readers I've had look over what I've written so far have been enthusiastic about it. Once I've got this one done, I'll begin working on a novel I'd started, but put aside halfway through when I lost about 2/3 of it to a computer disk crash. I promise to do it at a much slower pace, and spend more time blogging!
