I lost my 'BIG' Maine Coon little buddy, Goliath on May 12, 2014. He had been with me for over 17-years and died of a heart attack in my arms.
We lost our little buddy Samson, who was only 3-1/2, to Feline Leukemia in Feb. 2009

Sam was recently diagnosed with cancer, caused by the feline leukemia virus, so he's currently getting chemo-therapy threatments and has responded quite nicely.

Life...
It's been a long, winding and at times turbulent road, but I'm convinced I'm finally where I belong...

I now live in Houston, where I've been since March 2000. After 7-1/2 years of working for a multinational manufacturer and turning a non-existant Houston market into the #2 performing territory in the organization, I decided it was time to venture out on my own. In 2007 I started my own company and life has never been better or more profitable. I now own a manufacturer's representive company, specializing in HVAC, Heat Transfer & Steam related products.

In Nov. 2008 I married the woman you see with me in the photos here in my profile. Her name is Kelli. She is a native Houstonian and attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. We have been together since May 13, 2005 but chose not to live together until we were married. We had both done the "living together thing' in our previous marriages, and decided to take a different path this time around. We honeymooned for 11-nights on the island of Bali, with a 2-night stopover in Singapore. We will soon begin the process of custom building a new home on property she currently owns near downtown Houston, in an area of town that truly reminds me of the College Park area of Orlando. Neither of us have children, but our canine and feline menagerie keeps us quite entertained and busy! So our trade off for having no kids will be travelling together, which we are both looking forward to.

On an interesting side note, one of our '79 classmates, Teri (Peer) Ceja, will be living less than a 1/2 mile from us once we're settled in the new house.

School Story:

Hmmmm, let see...

Playing quarters at Scott Davidson's at least once a week after school.

The party at Kevin & Ken Coleman's house on Queensway that blocked the ENTIRE street with cars and teenagers.

The party Don Becker's house on Jackwood Ct. that kept all the neighbors awake and pissed off 'till the wee hours of the morning. I think I woke up face down on the downstairs floor the next day sometime.

The senior cruise. Teri Peer threatened to throw me overboard and not tell the captain.
Drank too many tequila sunrises and ended up in someone else's cabin, who shall remain nameless, so as not to sully her reputation. LOL!

Graduation night...Damn what a party at Oak Shadows!

Extracurricular Activities in High School:

well yeah, but let's just say we could've gone to jail for them.

Did you follow the career path you had planned in high school?

No, I just sort of happened into what I do, figured out I was pretty good at it, and just stuck with it. Now 30-years later, after lots of hard work, I guess I've been proven correct.

It's Saturday Night: Where were you THEN?

Working at Publix until 10:00-ish, then off to find some after-work get together, and party for a few hours.

It's Saturday Night: Where are you NOW?

Either sitting at PF Chang's having a few drinks, sitting at home watching a movie, or out for dinner with the in-laws.

What kind of car did you drive in high school? Did you carpool? If so, with whom?

Carpooled...usually with Jim John, but occasionally got to take my mom's car.

Me & Don Becker at the 2008 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo World's Championship BBQ Cook-off. Notice the 'Finalist Banner' hanging behind Bob. We ended up placing 3rd in ribs and 7th overall, out of close to 260 or so competing teams.
