I am retired from the US Navy. Currently I am attending school at a community college, and nearing my AA degree in ART. I am a cartoonist, and do a bi-weekly cartoon strip for a local paper. The name of cartoon aharacter is ZACK. I am divorced, and I have two children living on the other side of the country. I enjoy gardening, writing poetry/haikus and photography. I live life a day at a time, and feel a sense of humor is one of my most important attributes.
