God bless the memory of His gift to us all... Richie Havens.

Actually I had a strange childhood. Dad was in construction at that time and jobs were plentiful. He was also one hell of a good equipment operator and was well known with the bigger construction companies, so finding a job was not hard.

We moved a lot in the Pacific Northwest area. And by a lot, I mean a lot. I went to 11 differnent schools in the first grade. Hit one twice, and in one I was only there for half a day. While it did get better as I got older, for the most part we were not stable.

Actually I might have been better off in the jungle and then the zoo.

You asked where I lived.

I have absolutely no artistic ability. I appreciate those that do, but I have none.

But I can visualise structures in my mind and put them on paper. I can look at someone's design and tell within minutes if it will work or not. Or if it's even buildable.

I can't spell worth shit, but at one time I could do simple calc. in my head.

Everyone has different talents and abilities. You had the talent to entertain and provide pleasure to people. I had the ability to take that 200HP engine and up it to 500HP.

Is that better?

Yeah, that was awesome.

I learned a lot.

I thought calculus was a harden dental deposit.

I'm decent with doing simple math in my head, but when even rudimentary algebraic symbols appear before me, they do not fkn compute.

Yet, I'm fine with musical math...

Guys like you keep 747's in the air.

All I do is play guitar n stuff.

My Dad (Tony) was an airplane mechanic in WWII. Then from common drafting thru design engineering, eventually designing some stuff that went to space. I think it was in the area of computer component packaging.

Pop's passion was for mechanical drawing. Although I never got to see much of it, but Mom said that his work was "jaw dropping....masterful". Mom said they were some of the most beautiful drawings she'd ever seen. Mom was a commercial artist herself and a damn fine painter.

That is the one solitary compliment I ever heard her paid the old man.
