Profile Information

 I'm 62, originally from the U.K.. but have lived most of my life in the Great Lakes region of Ontario, Canada. I'm a retired construction worker and married to my first wife of 42 years, have 3 kids (grown) and 4 grandkids (still growing). I started writing stuff (poetry and short stories) just for fun when I joined a couple of seniors' forums about 5 years ago. I decided to join Booksie also, just for the enjoyment of it and am by no means under any delusions that my writings are worthy of being published or anything like that. In fact, the wife thinks they're mostly just "stupid" (and she's right, I guess), but I have received positive feedback from time to time from my fellow old folks in the forums. Perhaps they were just being kind. Old folks can be like that. Well, some of them anyway. There are some cranky ones out there too. Meanwhile, I thought I'd expand my horizons, give this place a try and see what the reaction (if any) is like from people who are more serious about writing. I plan to read some of  your stuff too but meanwhile, If anyone here cares to read and comment on mine, by all means be brutally honest. I have no ego to bruise. Like I said, I'm just here for fun.
