My family is my world. Christ is my Savior. Of course, it is obvious that cycling is a huge part of my life. I stay physically and mentally fit, while struggling to understand the redundant Lifetime plots of man-hating movies. My son graduated from The University of Alabama and now works in Huntsville. My daughter graduated from Columbus State University, works in Atlanta, and holds my heart in the palm of her hand. John Steinbeck is incredible, and Batman is the best superhero. I try not to cry, holding to the strength of my tearless gender, but the Notebook kicked me in the gut. Nobody is better cowboy than Robert Duvall, and one day I will pack out and ride in Montana. Muscle cars make me giddy. I was a heathen in high school but graduated with honors in college. The Army brought structure to my life, but my wife showed me how to be selfless and love without bounds . . . she is my essence.
