    Cold Windy Evening @ Wrigley Field

    My avi picture was taken while at Wrigley Field a few weeks ago. The Cubs were hosting the Brewers and I got free tickets through the USO. My Cubs lost, but it was still a great night at Wrigley. The bleacher seats were partying it up anyway. The cold air kept my beer cold, so it...

    Great Day...

    My avatar was taken not too long ago. I volunteered at a senior citizens Christmas party and had a blast! I put a lot of work into that day and the preparations leading up to it so not only is it a great memory and representation of me, it's also one of the few pictures I have...

    My newest picture is a picture of me holding up my hockey league's version of the Stanley Cup. Last season I played in my first hockey league and we won the championship. What a great and amazing feeling that was.

    My Avatar...Well, Here`S The Story...

    Since I was a teenager I was mad about motors, cars and motorcycles. I passed my bike test in 1967 and that was the start of a long love affair with two wheeled transport. That ended when I married; my wife was not keen at all on bikes then, so I confined my activities to the...

    Actually, I don't, but I think it's fair to

    Comfort Food

    I love comforting others. I love holding their hand, holding them, kissing their head. & I also love being comforted. It has nothing to do with sex, I just love snuggling & physical closeness. So I'm "comfort food."

    Kyoko Mogami from the manga Skip Beat!

    If you ever cared about someone and worked your *** off for them because you loved them, had them treat you like crap and toss you aside like garbage, then you also relate to Kyoko. Especially if you wanted payback. Not just her, but I also think of that moment in Diary of a Mad...

    My avatars show my mood of the day, or how I feel, or where I would want to be.   They are all anime, all red-headed women (like me)... and that is the story.  Except on special occasions like Halloween when I choose to try and SCARE people!
