I am a 47 year old male. I work as chief clerk at our local County Election Board. I spent 23 years in public service (law enforcement & EMS)before taking this position. I have a 20 year old son who is my pride & joy. He went to work for the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe railroad, what a good job for a young man to get. He married a beautiful girl that truly loves him and made us a great daughter in law. We have a grandson that words can't describe my love for him. I have been married for 18 years to my soul mate (cheekywabbit56), the love of my life, without a doubt, my Queen. I have 1 sister (niecedenise), she lives in Kansas City, she's also a swap-botter, I am very thankful for her. We live in rural northeastern Oklahoma, in the southwest corner of the Ozarks, deep in these flint rock hills along the beautiful Illinois River. I play Mountain Dulcimer along with all kinds of percussion instruments, spoons, washboard and a host of others. We are members of our local rock and mineral society.

Some of my favs are, The Chieftains, Don Pedi, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Yonder Mountain String Band, Harold Aldridge Jr. at www.deepbluesduo.com (our next door neighbor 1/4 mile away) & Pat Moss (Deep Blues), but, I like and listen to many more.
The Departed, The Lord of The Rings (all of them), The Illusionist, Pirates of the Carribean, The Last Castle, most action movies (guilty pleasure)
