Introduction Artist, impressionism and abstract. Born in Virginia, lived in Oklahoma and New Mexico for several years. B.A., Government and Public Administration, University of South Carolina, 1974. Single, non-smoker. No kids, no pets, and NO regrets :-) Four miserable years in the Army, duped into joining after I bought the government's lies about Vietnam. I decided to start blogging when mainstream media kept bloodcurdling facts quiet regarding the death of Marine recruit Jason Tharp. That blog is now titled "The Great American Scam" at askparris.blogspot.com
Interests art, snow skiing, hiking, birdwatching, writing, music, utility bicycling, sports cars, Formula I racing, sport motorcycles, pandora.com, realage.com
Favorite Movies King of Hearts, The Sting, Its a Mad Mad World
Favorite Music Stuff that rocks: Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis. Howls such as Seeger's Katmandu and Ray Charles' What'd I Say? Throw in some blues, but if it ain't got swing, it don't mean a thing. Ol' "Killer" Jerry Lee got it right: "Anyone who doesn't like rock and roll is crazy. Its HAPPY music."
Favorite Books The Education of Little Tree, Looking Out for Number One, King's Row
