Primer for the White Knuckle, Jelly knee, Socializer


A six-page brochure. Available at AMAZON

That was me during high schoo! Isolated, working on a farm as a hired man. My two older sisters Bonnie & Frances, recognized the problem I would face as an adult. They took it upon themselves to ensure I perfected an area of socializing where I became comfortable conversing with any one, any age. Their guidance allowed me to explode onto the social networking stage. You can read how sisters did this in my novel Post Hole Digger

    Born March 25, 1937, Avoca, Iowa at home on a family farm. Attended a one room country school for two years. At age fifteen upon the death of my father, I became a janitor of the Macedonia, Iowa Consolidated School. Age sixteen worked as hired man on a farm for four years. After graduation I joined the Navy and served twenty seven years in submarines. After I retired from the Navy, went to work for utility company as production controller supervisor of the computerized maintenance department. Starting out life in the "cash n' carry " world, where needs and savings were the law we lived by. At the age of sixty, after working all my able life, I just stopped going to work. I have a wonderful partner. She and I have been together for thirty-two years travelling the world extensively. I don't know if I am a writer or just a story teller that can uniquely connect the dots.
