The O'Reilly author's page above is a semi-decent bio. Other than that, I lived in Dallas two or three times after graduation. I stayed in Austin for about ten years, jumped ship after I sold my interest in the investment banking firm I started (WPRC). I landed in Laguna Beach, California. I had good friends living there and they didn't have to sell me on staying.

I lived in Port Isabel across the bay from South Padre Island before moving to Paris to attend watch school. Decided to stay.

I turn 70 tomorrow and looking forward to the next decade. I have a girlfriend and may get married.

In 2006, I finally took the rites of the Catholic Church. So, I had a Bar Mitzvah when I turned 13. Did I convert or join family members on my dad's side?

School Story

During my senior year, we had a substitute homeroom and physics teacher. He wound up staying the two terms. He retired as a Navy captain and had some age on him. He would fall asleep every day during class and we would just leave. He gave us all high grades and I don't know why.

I taught guitar at Minsky's Music (remember him?) in Preston Forrest shopping center. Leaving physics early gave me some time to kibbitz.

Saturday, I celebrated the anniversary of my birth with a trip to McKinney from Paris. Saturday has special meaning since it represented Eastern vigil and Passover. 71 years ago, I became my parents first born and I have no doubts a bundle of trouble to a young woman 20 years old. What were they thinking? They certainly lacked the maturity to bring a child into the world. Those of us still celebrating birthdays, a tip of the hat. Thank you for any birthday wishes. I can always use the prayers! God bless you!

I had a laminectomy on August 8th. My doctor removed the staples last Tuesday but I remain in recovery. I did not know what to expect so to come out of there free of sciatica or any other pain blew me away. My neurosurgeon performed the surgery at Paris Texas regional hospital and to those local people who said I had to go to Dallas, well, they should learn to use Google. I feel so grateful to God for standing by my side during the last three years in particular. The cause of the damage likely occurred when a nice lady hit me (my car) from behind as I sat at a red light on NW Highway and Web Chapel. Anyway, I feel well.
