MY LIFE IN 202 WORDS
If I were to die
tomorrow, I could die happy.
In 58 years Iíve won the love of a good woman, a daughter, a son, four
granddaughters, and six dogs.
I made an unassisted triple play and won a championship football game with
a last-second 98-yard run.
I was captain of my high school tennis team, Senior Class President, and
unofficial class clown.
In college I played trumpet in rock bands, perfected the art of the stunt
fall, and celebrated my 21st birthday in Paris.
Iíve worked at Jack-in-the-Box and Penneyís, sold leisure suits and
contact lenses, and taught elementary school for 16 years.
In my spare time, Iíve learned a couple of hundred songs on the trumpet or
piano, painted forty wall murals, written two dozen song parodies and
eight plays, and completed one novel and half of two others.
Iíve also found time to build 155 plastic models (only 95 to go) which I
display along with a thousand 1950ís space and aviation collectibles in 54
custom-built dioramas in my toy room.
I may not place first in the ďHe Who Dies With The Most Toys, WinsĒ
Contest, but Iíll definitely be a contender.
