Retired military. Retired from phone company. Independently politically active but not bound to any party. Do not participate in social issue discussions because they are fruitless. I love to put a touch of satire in my scribblings. Happily married for more than 22 years. Bi-lingual. English/Spanish. Beautiful and intelligent wife. age-68 going on 17. I am a novice or rookie writer and have not taken writing seriously until now. I just want a place to write and not lose everything to a bad disk or virus but as well mingle with others to read and exchange views with one another. maybe I will rub cyber elbows with some really great writers.
