I spend time with my family and my Pug/Jack Russel terrier mix Buoy (@BuoyTheDog). You can see pictures of him over on my Instagram and Flickr accounts. As you can tell photography is also one of my passions. I also enjoy goofing around with Photoshop with some measure of success.
I also enjoy music, both listening to it and playing. I have a small collection on string instruments that I love plucking. I am self-taught in ukulele, guitar, banjo, tenor guitar, and a tiny bit of mandolin. In my youth I toured the country for four summers as a percussionist in the Argonauts Drum & Bugle Corps. Every once in awhile I will write a little tune or two.
I love to read and write poetry. In fact I have volumes of verse of various quality posted online at my poetry archive. I also have been found to blog my thoughts over at the Jugbo Blog (although it’s broken right now, don’t know what’s going on there yet). On August 10th I will be celebrating my tenth year as a blogger. Although I struggle to keep up with it sometimes it truly is one of my dearest passions.
I was a widower and now I’m divorced. I have a grown son and teenage daughter. I enjoy being a single dad.
A few other fun stuff I enjoy: camping, boating, fishing, watching live theater, hiking, Xbox, good food.
