About me.   Hmmm.

Married – All good.

Two kids – one good and one bad.

Two dogs – one good and one bad.

One cat – surprisingly good.

What do I/we look like?  Here is an original pen and ink sketch that I did – having taken drawing lessons in the Northern Virginia Academy of Crappy Drawing – so that you can see a good likeness of our little slice of heaven.  All rights reserved.

Sketch 2012-12-17 17_09_28

I live in the aforementioned Northern Virginia area across the street from a purple house, which I’m sure will make the subject of a blog one day.  I mean seriously, how could it not…

My musical influences are the Ramones, Joan Jett, Social Distortion, Flogging Molly and the Avett Brothers.  How’s that for diversity?   And I don’t really know that they are influences necessarily – it’s just who I like to listen to this current day.  They don’t influence me to do anything except listen to them.  So they’re influencing my influentialness.

I like watching reality TV shows with the family.  And paranormal shows (also will be a subject of an upcoming blog of course.  Or six of them.)  Finding Bigfoot, Ghost Hunters, Unexplained Mysteries, anything of that ilk.

See.  I’m just a normal person.  I just have all this ‘fun’ bottled up inside of me that I’m going to virtually upchuck onto your computer screens each week/month that you may enjoy and may not.  But at least it will be out of MY system…

    Can you please elaborate on which one of your dogs and kids is good and which one is bad? I’m having trouble creating a mental image of your family without knowing these key details 🙂


  2. You are an absolute hoot! Do you really have a piggy?

    The Ramones are/were the greatest band of all time. Thanks for visiting dentaleggs, too.


  4. Found you through The Waiting blog and nearly snarfed my coffee twice while wandering around your site – since I love to laugh I had to click “follow”!


  5. […] Tim from Flying Here in the Middle of Somewhere – Fellow Southerner! You always make me smile, and that is more than enough reason to share […]


    • Good lord. Does that mean I now have to get all gussied up for an awards show? Maybe I’ll just play the ‘I’m currently on tour in Mozambique’ card and skip the actual ceremony.

      But seriously – thank you so much for the nod. Your support has been tremendous and it’s much appreciated.


  6. Hi there,
    Thank you for taking the time to stop by my little corner of the blogosphere and for the follow. Your support is greatly appreciated,
    Have a great weekend 🙂

  8. Hello,
    After following a link in your (presumably) old Instagram I came across your website and a means to contact you. I am interested in acquiring your Instagram username @battlewagon. Seeing as how your account only has 2 posts and the most recent being over 3 years ago, I am guessing you don’t actively use the account anymore. I would be very interested in using the Instagram username @battlewagon. Please let me know if you’d be willing to give up the username so that I could start using it.

    Thank you,
