Hello world!

Life always has interesting subjects.  That not only applies to stories, but people who commit themselves to create such stories.  Just one quick one to perk your interest. 

I worked contruction work right out of high school.  I had no other skills other than working on a farm.  So I worked in a radial arm saw shop with my dad and his side kick Shorty Henderson.  Shorty was a good man, but he had a hankering for ‘shine.  Him and his cousin Leedy could put down some of that water clear coma inducing liquid.  Smoooooooth was the word I would hear them say, describing the last batch.  Of course they still smelled of alcohol when they’d come to work.  And the stories they could tell with grins from ear to ear.

Our “shack” was the hold up point for the lunch crowd.  Most of them were a mix of carpenters and heavy equipment operators.  One operator I remember for telling the biggest tales you’d ever heard.  Some of them were the ones about snakes so big their head would be going into the woods on one side of the road as their tail came out of the woods on the opposite side of the road or deer with racks of horns they could only run fire lanes through the woods.

So, come on back when you get the time.  Maybe you’ll see something you haven’t read.  I’m sure I’ll have something to write about.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
