About Me

I was born in Columbus Ohio in 1958 and we moved to W. Chicago IL. back in 1965. I grew up here and graduated W. Chicago Comm. High in 1977. I joined the U.S. Air Force Nov. of 1977 and became an Air Craft Maintenance Specialist working on fighter and heavy cargo and bomber aircraft. I was stationed up in Minot ND, Tucson AZ, Kunsan AB S. Korea, Limestone ME. Chicago Ohare airport with an Air Force Res. unit and Phoenix AZ. I was over sees For Desert Shield/ Storm and retired in 1998. I started driving 18 wheelers in 1994 till 2002 when I got off the road. I've been pretty much to every state in our union except Hawaii. I'm pretty easy going and some what shy although depending on my mood and the person I'm talking to I can be out going. I've been married since 1978 and currently have a beautiful daughter and a fine son that's serving oversees with the U.S. Army. I also have 2 Grand kids from my daughter. right wing extremist checklist

I'd like to meet

I like meeting friendly folks that are straight up and honest.

Activities

I don't get out a whole lot for the most part. Once I get off work I tend to stay put but if the day's decent then I'll hop aboard my motorcycle and go out for a ride wherever it leads me. I also like talking to my friends on Soda Head. I watch a lot of TV so not a whole lot of excitement there. I like tinkering with classic cars. I like going out target shooting when i have the time and the extra funds to spend and I like a good car show or air show. When I was in Arizona I did a lot of volunteer work over at the Pima Air museum working on and restoring the old war birds that they show there.

Interests

I like working with my hands and tinkering with machinery. I enjoy working on classic cars.

Favorite TV Shows

NCIS, Law and Order, Law and Order SVU, Jag, Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Ghost whisperer, Billy the Exterminator, Dog Fights, WWE Monday night Raw(I know, it's not real) Power block TV, and a whole lot of other shows I can't think of right at this moment.

Favorite Movies

Major Payne, Periscope down, McClintok, Ghost rider. and Wild Hogs.

Favorite Books

When I do decide to do some reading I like books by Steven King, Dean Koontz, Dale Brown, Steven Coons.

Favorite Heroes

First and foremost my son Adam. He's currently serving in the Army and has seen combat in Iraq. Also, all the current active duty/reserve military folks. Fire fighters and Police officers that put their neck on the line each and every day of the week.

    Sure doesn't take long for kids to grow up too!! I haven't any kids but my two nieces and nephew are all grown now into their 30's and I can't believe how fast the time went by and they were just little tots hanging onto furniture trying not to fall down. lol Heather was born in /77, not married but has lived with her BF for 10 yrs & her parents don't like him, as he used to slap her around. Amy, the youngest was married in /08 but it only last 3 yrs - has recently moved in with new boyfriend; and Nathan, now living in Revelstoke B.C. - nobody serious and not married yet. Heather & Amy are teachers, and Nathan a heavy equipment mechanic. My brother and his wife wonder if they'll live long enough to see any grandchildren. lol

    Hi Brian :) Been taking a tour thru your collection of pics on your profile. A nice bunch of pics and an insightful cross section of your interesting life. You look like a dad that any girl would be proud to have - what a lovely picture of you standing with her when she was getting married. You look like you're busting with pride.
    Have a safe and happy week.
    enjoy life

    Wouldn't want to be around where there's that many bikers in one place, things could get pretty rough I'd think! They are expecting around 800,000 here it said on the 6pm. news. Then in the spring (April) we get another 50,000 for the Maple Syrup Festival in the small town of Elmira which is only a 15min drive from me - the roads are continually clogged between here and Elmira but thankfully that's only for one weekend. Good for you for staying on the wagon for that length of time. It can be done. My ex-fiance was an alcoholic who was on the wagon when I met him in /75. He has been thru three bad marriages since I broke up with him and guess what - he's still on the wagon to this day. He never slipped off and he should have a medal for that. He did finally meet & marry someone again and they've stayed together for a long time and are happy. Jack and I have stayed good friends over all these years and his current wife and I are also good friends - his other wives wouldn't let him have anything to do with me. lol Guess they didn't have the brains to figure out that I had him long before they did and if I'd wanted him, he'd have been married to me, not them. duh
    Been very cold here & I've had the furnace going for a couple of weeks now and brought all my plants in from out...

    Been very cold here & I've had the furnace going for a couple of weeks now and brought all my plants in from outside but next Tues it's going back up to 21°C so I figure I'll cut my lawn for the last time this season and then get everything pulled out of the garage to swap places with the lawnmower and snow blower. Not looking forward to that but it's gotta be done I guess. Hope you're enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend. :)

    Thanks a bunch Brian. Good to see you back again, the site isn't the same without you :'(
    Have a very HAPPY Thanksgiving weekend and DO eat too much and ENJOY!!
    Kitchener is crazy this weekend as it's the kick-off weekend for Oktoberfest here. You can't get in anywhere, everything is booked in the city and the traffic is enough to make you crazy. It lasts for about ten days every year. Was fun when I was younger but now it's just a headache and a cash grab for the city. All cops are out in full force, following people around who leave from the drinking tents to catch them DUI, parking tickets bring in a fortune, the beer and other liquor sales are phenominal. People make money getting paid to be a designated driver to help ppl get their cars home safely - it's a wild circus here Brian.
    Drive safely if you're going anywhere and watch out for the other guy more than usual this weekend.

    Hi Brian,
    Good to see ya. I don't see you on too often any more but I understand the are more important things in life than this site and we all need our time away.

    There is more mayhem going on this past day or so. someone is making a career out of coming on every few days and attacking random members on their profiles and tracking them on poll replies. It is just happening too much. I hope the staff will clamp down the perpetrators soon because if they don't the members will leave permanently and it will give this site a bad name.
    How is your weekend so far, emphasizing "week-END" being Sunday? LoL.

    Hi Brian!
    How was your 4th?
    I was just looking for our last replies to each other and they aren't in my comments margin. I didn't take them off either because I like to check back all of the time to see where we leave off each time since you aren't on here all of the time as you used to be. Some weird stuff is going on here too, ones who I had as friends are not on my list and I ask them and they don't know either. I'm getting upset.
