Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Time to up-date:Describe Myself.I am Just a Simple guy.It does not
take much to make me happy.I am a very loyal and devoted to my
friends.I am into finding someone who is into commitment.I don't
like being played.I have been down that road before and it hurts.I
am sure I am not the only one on OKC who has been on that road
also.I feel that I am loving,Honest and can be depended on to be a
good friend.I like to be challenged.I have faults and I am not
afraid to admit that.I have traveled all over the world and have
many stories to tell if someone wants to hear them.Sometimes I can
get carried away talking to much.So I need someone who is willing
to knock me in the head to remind me to slow down.I have a great
memory.I can remember things back to when I was 2.Sometimes I look
at that as a gift but it also can bring back some things I wish to
forget.I am 49 yrs old. Happy grandfather of 5 Two Grand daughters
3 grandsons. 3 children. Daughter 28 son 27 son 21 I love my
heritage and my whole extended family. Served 8ys USAF DOD
firefighter, weapons specialist, Medic.One thing I like to do and
say when ending a talk, letter or e-mail is sign off with Stay
Positive. I really do try to stick to that with everything I do.I
hope you can to. If you need help sometime try to think of
When you can't find a light, to guide you through a cloudy
When the stars are not shining bright, and you feel like you lost
When the candle light of home, burns so very far away.
You gotta let your Soulshine.
Just like my Daddy used to say.
I'm Talking about Soulshine.
Its better than Sunshine.
It's better than Moonshine.
Damn sure better than Rain.
I am ontime, dependable, and truthful
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now Just being dad. 18 yr old son is senior at Tualatin high
school. He plays football and runs track so chasing him around
keeps me out of the house.Also love spending time with 2 yr old
grandson my other 2 live in SC.I will some day be Chief of my tribe
(Alsea).Love Pow Wows.
Up-Date:My son has Graduated and is now in the process of moving
out and heading off to College.
What am I doing?Well to be honest not much.I am learning that
Fathers can get Empty Nest Syndrome also.Some people may call me a
type B personality.That is far from the truth.I just don't get to
worked up.I tend to always be planning what to do next but 3 steps
ahead of where I am.I guess I do this so I can act like nothing
surprises me kind of like expected that to happen and I knew that
Up-date.This is old guess I need to up-date more often or
rewrite.So old that my youngest son is now a Jr in College and is
totally out on his own.So the nest is really empty now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching kids that there is more to whats on the score board ie..
Little victories like first hit, tackle, catch and so on.I have
been a Football coach for 18 yrs. Shooting (Uncle Sam made sure of
that)Both Rifle and Side arm.Staying calm during Emergencies.But I
have to say the best thing I am good at is telling my children I
love them everyday.I am also good at reading other peoples feelings
and body language.Is it to conceited to say you are a good lover
also? I hope not because I do not feel like a conceited person.I am
good at fixing things.I am also a great house painter (Family
Business, got started at age 10) Just give me a brush.I would
rather spray the paint though.I love giving and receiving hugs.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall and big.Also I guess my friends and people I am meeting for
the first time will notice I have fairly long hair.I keep it long
due to a Tribal Elders request that I grow braids.My Hair never got
this long in the 70s. But I will not disrespect an Elders
request.Also you will Notice that I wear mostly Nike clothing.Hey
its free from coaching in summer camps and comfortable.
Up Date:I have shaved my hair and donated it to Locks for Love.A
friend has cancer and her hair has started to fall out.I went to
the Tribal Elders and told them and they gave me permission to cut
my hair in support of her.It feels weird to be bald but small price
to pay to show someone that you are with them all the way.Plus I
told her when the Chemo is over and hers starts to grow back I will
start to grow mine again and we can race to see who gets to the ear
Up-Date on hair:My braids were very important to me.My hair was
donated to Locks For Love and I received a nice thank you card from
them.Now the bummer part.The woman I cut my hair for turned out to
be not that good of a friend as I thought.Although it went to a
good cause for wigs for kids I gave up a piece of me for the wrong
person.I hope it grows back faster than last time.

Meat and spuds, All music is a gift, Old westerns Military and yes
a good chick flick,Books-Days of Grace by Arthur Ashe,Its Not About
the Bike by Lance Armstrong,Generation Kill by Evan Wright (he is
from Rolling stone mag and he nails it on the life of special ops
in the military).After Reading my profile I noticed that I come
across some what as a sports fanatic so I guess I need to add that
I have just finished Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson.And although he
is a sports writer I just reread Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch
Albom.Just finished reading War,Fire and The Perfect Storm by
Sebastian Junger. So just so you know I am not a knuckle dragger
all the time some times I can be civilized to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My best friend John
The Great Creator
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Up-Date Jan 14-2012.
I find myself thinking about Losses.Not games but chances and just
Time.Also my children,Their growth as young adults.Ups and
downs.Also how can I still be Daddy to my Daughter and Dad to my
Finding someone to be with. What to tell people about me.If you
would like a more deep answer Please read my Journal and feel free
to respond.I could use the help.Also what the hell am I going to do
when my youngest son goes off to college.I also think about the
things we did in the Military.I lost 7 very close friends while I
was in.And I wonder about Karma because of the saying what goes
around comes around.Well Uncle Sam didn't send us to some of the
places we were sent to be Ambassadors of good will.I know they say
God forgives but do people?Then again can I forgive myself.
On a typical Friday night I am

true.Also I cried after Sons last game.Boo hoo no more High School
games for me.
Up-Date:Sons track season is over now.He made it to State in the 6A
110 meters Hurdles.I cried again.So I guess I can admit I am not

with me while I sleep then make fun of me later.
