Love to scoot on down to Charleston and take about a 7 day cruise
to the Caribbean.

Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Fort Apache, Streets of Fire, Woodstock (the
director's cut). Dr. Strangelove, Airplane.
Music? Head-banging Rock'n'Roll, some Jazz, and that rich Big Band

The six things I could never do without

decent conversation about ideas vs. other people or events.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
