About the Book

"Though no particular accomplishments in my life warrant an autobiography, I feel like the man on the television insurance commercial when he says, “We know a thing or two because we’ve seen a thing or two.” I don’t know that everything I relate is 100 percent accurate, but I have made every effort to tell the truth. The accounts and descriptions I give you are how I perceived them, and my memory may have faded over the many years in some instances. While I have made an effort to adhere to chronological order, I believe that a strict order of events might become confusing. Subject by subject, rather than year by year, seemed more orderly. I also developed the subject matter by focusing on what I consider to be defining moments in my life."
