At the request of my children I have started drafting my autobiography. I will periodically post the resulting prose to this site. Here is the first paragraph of many to follow:
When I was in college and had to do a paper, we didn’t have computers. I used to research and write down ideas I thought I might want to use. Then I would cut them out and organize what I had collected until everything was in the order I wanted them to be. Then I began writing the paper. There are so many things I would like to tell my family and I don’t always think of them at once. Therefore I will start by writing ideas as they come to me. If I am lucky enough to complete this, I will organize them in a timely or subject related book. Otherwise this may seem disorganized but that seems to be the best way to put things on paper. As I begin this, I am 72 years of age and have been married to Jim for over 50 years.
