I was born in Burlingame California, in the late 1950's. I am currently single, but have been married 3 times. I have 2 sons, 2 step-daughters (if they'll still claim me) and a total of 9 grandchildren between all of them. I graduated from Los Banos High School in 1974. I have had a miriad of working positions, and enjoyed teaching and medicine the best. I have been referred to as a hopeless romantic, and that may have been true in the past. I am a hopeful romantic currently and will most likely remain one. Hobbies are fishing, good conversation, and gambling on occassion (what else would you do in Reno?). If you purchase this book, and can locate me, I will sign it on request (if you like). Anything else you would like to know, you will have to find me and ask. I will probably answer you honestly, except on 2 issues. I hope you enjoy this and any other book I am able to complete.
