Since this is public and could be used against me in a court of law, I will cut to the chase.

Not all of my heros are popular for various reasons.

1.  The Lone Ranger - my first hero ever.  I didn't go to kindergarten because of family hardships.  When I was in the 1st grade The Lone Ranger TV show came on at 3pm.  I got out of school at 3:10pm.  I would run home (about 2 blocks) to see the last half of all the shows.  Some days I would be crying.

2.  Willie Nelson - I have loved Willie since 1976.  Wish he could have been in my family instead of the step-dad I had.  Willie has given away millions of more dollars than I will ever make.  I am also proud of his efforts for Farm Aid.

3.  Bernie Sanders - I was raised to vote for the man, not a political party.  (That's the way my Mom was.)  For most of my life I've been a registared Independant.  A few times I've been a Republican or a Libertarian.  I changed to Democrat last voting season so I could vote for Bernie in Kansas.  Enough about politics.

4.  Jim Rockford - The outside of his house looks a lot like mine, but the inside is safe and warm.

5.  Roy Rogers - Made me always want to be a cowboy.

6.  Dave Whipple - Been to Alaska way more than me.  I'd be jealous, but I'm happy for him.  I've been to Alaska, too.  I loved every minute of it, even with the bad times.  Once I dropped my brother's new expensive fishing pole in a fast moving river  on a float trip.  Once we stripped down to our underwear to dive and swim across a narrow river.  I forgot my glasses...they went somewhere down the river.  I got bucked off my sister-in laws big black horse and had to walk her back home because I couldn't get back on her.

David and Brooke Whipple have 2 websites. and  They are both top notch people with great websites.  If you like Alaska or just good people, they are for you.  I have so many Alaskan memories thanks to them.  They'd be the first to tell you I have bugged them too much.  Sorry guys.

Hum...who else...the late Freddy Powers.  Great songwriter and performer.  He worked a lot with Willie and Merle.  He has some youtube videos you can find.  Whenever I'm feeling blue, his stuff somehow cheers me up.

That's it for now. 

Ps: Dave and Brooke are most likely the only people that can spell sovereighnbohemian.  It came to me m a dream.  Just use sovbo like I do.  Peace
