the_real_ozone_ferdThe picture is me – age 21 – starting my junior year in college.  I’m much (much) older now but still think like that grinning 21 year old.  The body no longer responds the way I want it.  But I still like motorcycles, dirt bikes, music, guitar, comic books, comic related toys and figures, writing and reading.  Just check out my pinterest page, it pretty much covers my likes.

I have a 2005 Yamaha VStar Classic, a cruiser motorcycle, but am looking at a new bike.  I have a 2002 Yamaha YZ 426 but I’m looking at selling it cause the body just can’t take that lifestyle.  Or perhaps a dirt bike you don’t have to kick-start.

I’ve got 14, 400 comic books but I’m looking to start selling off as I go all digital with my comic book reading.  I’ve got quite a collection of comic related actions figures and expensive collector figures and a sufficiently sized batch of G.I. Joe 12″ figures.  Need to sell some of this stuff off.

I’ve got umpteen guitars, a couple of bass, a drum set, an electric drum set and a Korg keyboard.  And all the microphones and accessories that go with the equipment.  I like music and I like making music.  I have a recording studio where I dabble.  I enjoy playing in bands but alas that too is a painful endeavor and haven’t been in a band in 2 years.  Playing bars until 2:00 a.m. and then loading up is physically demanding.

So, I’ve got a lot of interest and i didn’t even touch on my desire to write a book or just write in general.  This blog helps in that endeavor.  I will, of course, touch on all my interest in this blog.

And did I mention I’m a Grandfather?  Yes throw that into the mix.  A wife, three sons and 2 grandsons.  There aren’t enough hours in the day for my day job, hobbies and family but I do what I can.
