Default Woody

I was born in France, by two crazy alcoholic types. Graduated High school; played football... had a scholarship to Ohio University...got injured my senior year of high school... only honored scholarship for one year.
Moved to San Jose ,Calif. ... get to know my real Dad (long story)... Worked as a tire buster...worked my way up to management.
Returned to Cincy ,Ohio.... Joined the Army out of bordom...3rd Ranger Battalion...bla...bla... ra...ra...
Got out after Desert Storm... Started a Painting company with 50.00, a set of business cards made by a heroin addict, and borrowed my first extension ladder.... In 2005, I downsized after being married(still am)for 17 years, raising two boy's (the third one manages a TV station in Virgina). I've done every job emaginable.... I charged 45 per man hr. ,all the way up to 2 million dollar jobs.....ra...ra....ha...ha
I have knowledge , if someone wants it.... "Personally, I think we have enough knowledge hear"

Today; I'm recovering from back surgery's, applying for SSD, and VA benifits... My home is payed for, and I drive a 2009 Ford....ra....ra...ha...ha.



Stay Frosty

Yes, there is no shortage of character and plot. I gravitate to the sites with solid content, and a healthy balance of fun.

What we need is something like the systems in professional baseball. Single A, Double A, Triple A, Majors. We already have owners, umpires, scouts, players. All we would need is a commissioner.
