There are also a few thoughts for the day as I call them that are only a few lines long. They are intended to make you stop and think about your life. Maybe you will like them. I hope you like the majority of the book. I doubt anyone will like everything in the book, but I hope at least a couple of them will catch you by the heart.

About the Author
I'm an oddity in my own way. I dropped out of school at fifteen because it was boring. It didn't help that near the end of my freshman year I tried to exit a '56 Ford through the windshield. It didn't work, but it did leave me with a couple hundred stitches from the chin up so I looked like Frankenstein's monster.
In later years I got my GED and started taking classes at the nearest community college. Working full time I had to take four shots at it, but I got a AAS in Information Systems. At one point I was taking classes at Rowan Cabarrus Community College and UNC-Charlotte at the same time. I broke three bones in my ankle and was out of work for over a year, so UNC-Charlotte went out the window. I still have two screws in my left ankle.
In 1999 I twisted my back and ruptured a disc. After two operations I was left with a disc fusion and declared disabled. Now I had metal in my back and ankle. In 2013 I had another operation in my back to remove bone that had grown into the spinal canal and was pressing on a nerve. In late 2015 I fell, landed on my butt, and destroyed a vertebrae. So, in early 2016 I had my forth operation and my second fusion. I hope that doesn't happen again.
Most of my life I worked in factories like weave rooms and knitting rooms. I have worked on looms, circular knitting machines, and warp knitting machines. And in between all that I did eight years as a crane operator in a quarry.
Well, that's probably more than you wanted to know about me. I hope you enjoy the book.
