I've been proud to be a contributor here on Hub Pages. It's hard to believe that I've been doing this for 13 years.

Not bragging, but I've have always had a way with words. I discovered this ability at the young age of 17 years old, I joined a Top 40's style horn band. Playing trumpet was my ticket to becoming a member of that semi-successful group, but my true passion came from writing lyrics for some of our original songs. And as we were trying to build a name for ourselves and performed popular tunes of the day, I loved rearranging some of the songs to make them a bit more distinctive to our style.

I try to write about a wide range of different topics to appeal to a diverse audience. Some subjects just pop into my head. Other times, I use the internet and the trending news at the time for ideas. I am very passionate about family and sports, so there might be a tendency for me to lean towards those topics more often.

I am blessed more than words can descibe to be married to the girl of my dreams, Marcia, for 47 years as of October 11th! I am immensly proud of my three children, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and two grandchidren. I am reminded not to take my family for granted and cherish every day that we have together.

All in all, I truly enjoy writing and want to try to keep active as a hubber. I want to stay flexible and write about an array of different things. I'm glad to be part of this exciting venue.
