Hey everyone, today, July 16 2014 I turn the big Five-Oh! Yes, I cannot believe it. Its pretty incredible to think I have been around for 50 years — that seems such a long time, yet now I realize it is nothing at all.
I have had a lot of adventures in my first fifty years and hope to have just as many the next fifty.
I have journeyed to Japan and England and been to many states. Travel is beautiful and I hope everyone gets a chance to see this incredible planet and the wide and varied assortment of civilizations.
I now count so many friends from around the world. Because of the web I have friends in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, England, Scotland, South Africa, Brazil, Sweden, France. The list just goes on and on.
I am also a published author of numerous game books and here this month I will finally publish my debut novel, Amish Johnson and the Pegasus Chamber. I still have so many stories to tell, even though they may be a bit disjointed and cobbled. I hope to still be writing 20 years from now, telling everyone adventures.
I have enjoyed my computers over the years, and I can appreciate them coming from an era where there was none. When I was a kid, there was no Xbox or even computers. No MMOs, No first person shooters, no turn-based command & conquer games. I lived in a world without email, and cell phones, and if you wanted to watch a show you better be home when it was broadcast. I remember the introduction of the microwave, or at least when my family got one it was real special.
I was a kid during the greatest time for movies: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Star Trek, ET, Jaws, etc… What a wonderful time to grow up.
Here is looking at the next fifty years.
