Dog rescue is an important part of my life. I have been doing it for almost 15 years now. I started two dog rescue groups and I am very active in dog rescue, although not as much as I was a few years ago. I pulled many dogs from the pound who would have gotten the needle only because nobody wanted them. I am also involved in animal law through several professional organizations.
A few years ago I decided that my life was getting to the stage of half over and whatever I wanted to do I better get busy and do. Then I went dogsledding. I bought a motorcycle and I started playing saxophone in a jazz band. I spend a lot more time outdoors enjoying nature or playing with my dogs and a lot less time watching TV news and worrying about things. I take writing classes at the Writer's Garrett. I work on my vintage Porsche a lot and I'm getting ready to race it at Porsche Club of America and SCCA events.
I never thought I would still be alone this far down the line, but life moved faster than I thought it would and there were so many other things to do. There are times when I am up in the mountains or out in the country and I wish there was somebody there with me. I would like to find somebody special to share my life with. I own my own house, my cars are paid for and I pay all my bills on time. I am an honest, hardworking just a little bit smarter than your average Joe and just a little bit crazy. I like to live life to the fullest.
I can figure skate. I had an ex-girlfriend who was a professional ice skater who trained at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. She taught me extensively.
I can weld and make my own car parts, thanks to the hot rod school at Eastfield College.
I'm really getting into Game of Thrones now. I used to read George R.R. Martin when he was doing more a more futuristic type of sci-fi. Nobody develops characters the way he does, and yes, the books are better than the TV show. I just rescued a huge Alaskan Malamute and named him Greywind after Robb Stark's Direwolf. He really looks the part. Before that I was into Sons of Anarchy. I actually grew up in Stockton, California where the story took place. My best friend's dad owned the Harley Davidson dealer in town and my friend always worked the parts counter. If there really was a SAMCRO this guy would have sold them parts for their bikes! I also liked Breaking Bad. Especially the New Mexico scenery. Yeah, I love the desert as much as I do the mountains. I like bad science fiction movies. I hate reality shows and most of the crap they have on TV now. I am very picky about what I program into my PVR.
I read just about everything Jon Katz wrote about his dogs to the point of actually getting my own Border Collie and training him to herd sheep. I actually got to talk to the guy at a book fair in Austin. He's about 10 years older than I am and went from network TV news producer to farmer and dog trainer. I consider him a role model for middle aged guys who don't want to do what everybody else does.
Other favorite writers, Allen Steele, John Scalzi, Clive Cussler (I actually saw him driving his Duesenberg when I lived in Colorado), Garth Stein, Hemingway, Steinbeck (he and I both grew up in Northern California) many others. I read lots of science fiction, especially space opera and military science fiction which is also the genre where I attempt to write. I am on a tear reading the classics as well. I read everything. Sometimes I wish I had majored in English Literature.
