About Me
41 year old male. Disabled mentally & physically.(hurt myself outside works & let them intimidate me into workin hurt resulting in a burst S5/L1 disk pinching my spinal cord to 1/4 normal size. 3 herniated disks above that, all compressed above those 3 have nerve damage and drool from pain even though my daily pain med would subdue an elephant) Miss my career which was just over 20 years in auto parts. Funny, witty, my collection will someday be part of my retirement. (If I live that long) They cannot do surgery on my back because if they put me under 50/50 shot I'd die on the table. But I keep positive. Only really keeps me from standing long or walking over a few hundred feet.
Interests
Was aspiring knife maker untill a semi-professional (in my humble opinion) knife maker and columnist for Knives Illustrated recommended I buy a Grizzly as my first knife grinder which was a just shy of $900 TOTAL waste of money. Also without telling me any reason told me never to contact him out of the blue. Have a few of his customsfor sale! LOL Still very much into cars, writing poetry, playing guitar, educational tv, etc
Other Hobbies
Guitar
Writing
Drag racing (converting my 89 Chrystler Conquest to a small block chevy,shooting for low 11 seconds 1/4 mile et. Will be street legal, though more for driving to the track, do not street race (or recommend it) except for very rare special circumstances.)
