About me

Location San Diego, CA
Introduction I am the more serious twin, not to say that Patty can’t be serious. She has more creativity and humor -- I am the Dean Martin to her Jerry Lewis. We became twins in the Mediterranean in 1996. My singular purpose is service to others. With remaining time, I climb mountains or get ready to climb mountains. When I am off track for my mission, the old bullet wound to the right thorax begins to hurt. I have two children and three grandchildren -- all girls -- and I have tried to impart that they have been given gifts, that they must give back even more than they have been given, and they must leave this earth a better place for having been here. Life is that simple.
