Biography

Somewhere North of the Rio Grande...

In the Deserts of West Texas....

There's a Rag Chew, Welcome, Waiting....

At a shack called Bienvenido Amigo....
=================================================================================
WELCOME FRIEND!

I am active on most bands from 440 mhz to 1.8 mhz most days since becoming disabled.
and just sponging off my wife and the charity of others to stay alive.
