I am married. I keep myself busy with landscaping, doing remodeling work, travel, catering, bowling and the occasional concert. While I like to cook, I enjoy eating out just as much. I relax by playing guitar in my spare time, This is a song I wrote in 2006 called Merry Christmas From Iraq.
And this is one of my "cover/interpretive" songs, Astronut (Diapered For The Drive Across Five States), which is a parody of Sir Elton John's Rocketman (I Think It's Going To Be A Long, Long Time).
BTW ~ Some people may say I can't sing but nobody can ever say I didn't sing!
Travel is my all-time favorite pasttime. I have been to Canada, Mexico, England, The Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Poland, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, and through most of the 50 United States of America. I intend to continue visiting the world as long as I can and my goal is to one day visit all 50 states in the US as well as visit all the continents of the world.

So, I suppose if you have made it this far through my bio, you aren't too bored. Most of my comments and entries are friends only. If you happen to add me as a friend, be sure to make a comment as I don't always look at my info page. Friend me, and I'll friend you back (unless you are under the age of 18).
Finally, Music's lyric is life's dialogue.
Songbird written by Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac
For you, there'll be no more crying, For you, the sun will be shining, And I feel that when I'm with you, It's alright, I know it's right
To you, I'll give the world to you, I'll never be cold 'Cause I feel that when I'm with you, It's alright, I know it's right.
And the songbirds are singing, Like they know the score, And I love you, I love you, I love you, Like never before.
And I wish you all the love in the world, But most of all, I wish it from myself.
And the songbirds keep singing, Like they know the score, And I love you, I love you, I love you, Like never before, like never before.
In loving memory of William Michael McKinney January 1951 ~ September 1993
