The age of 18 found me still on the farm where my grandparents and parents created the perfect and happy life for us all, on an eleven-acre farm. The pranks and dare devil schemes I learned to do as a child, lingered on into my adult life teaching me that taking risks, was not all bad and prepared me for lessons I would soon find necessary to have learned. It was also where we raised much of our own food and I learned what I needed, for preparing myself for life in the future and teaching me the importance of earning a living, though I was just a youngster.
Our farm was located in a small town known as Andover, England. My grandpa taught me how to milk cows, fish and even learn to tell tall tales! My life never knew anything but happiness growing up being loved and learning how to give that love back in return. The love bug took a hold of me one fateful evening when I ask my sweetheart to dance and blissfulness continued to grace my life allowing my job challenges to be even easier to face head on. It wasn't too long afterwards we had a son, Simon, who made us proud in every way.
I seemed to always know my life would one day take me into the world of Engineering, as it has. My work was challenging and I held several responsibilities working as an Engineer overseeing many crews. But I also continued to take up those dare devil activities! But again, they prepared me for the life I never realized one day I would have with my son. It wasn't until that tragic day my wife, Irene, passed away in 2010. that my son, Simon, led me back to living life again through new experiences and adventures that brought breath back into my life. I decided to engage in a fire walk at age 70, swim with a dolphin that even kissed me and swam with tiger snakes (when younger) and sharks!
I learned to live life over again at age 70, making me realize my life was just getting started. I learned about Day Trading, took up martial arts and physical fitness activities and enjoyed cruises and road trips with Simon. Most of all, I learned that you are only limited by your own inhibitions. The lesson here for me was...I really, never gave up!
Of all I have done in my life, my greatest accomplishment is my family. Simon and Irene were and are my life and driving force for the adventure's that unfold inside the pages of my book. Together, we share joy, sorrow and great happiness. Join me at our family farm where Bessie, my friendly cow, gooseberries and my dog Jane help shape my life into what I am today. Learn about martial arts, dolphins, proper dietary needs, financial freedom and how to find your way back from devastation. Hope reigns and victories gain the path of all tomorrows.
