Biography

I'm a happy octogenarian living content in a sprawling conurbation filling what spare time I have writing the odd poem. Lifes good, and armed with my bus pass travel to many destinations of interest, so abundant are these that being the age I am, will probably never have to duplicate A bit of advice to those dreading old age, It's not a time when active life stops, for with a little self discipline keeping fit etc. it is most definitely something you should look forward to. 'Cause while you're shackled to a clock watching regime, I'm jumping about free in a bowl of cherries type existence, that's full of concessionary or better still, free activities. Don't worry about future financial problems, for living in the slow lane you'll find money(used sensibly) is bottom on any list of priorities. Even if like me, your on basic pension. I'm now pleased to announce having lately in two thousand and sixteen self-published a paper back entitled "NOW I KNOW WHERE I'M@" consisting of an eclectic seventy or so comical and somewhat more serious rhymed pieces each with an easily interpreted profundity' (nothing mysterious about my stuff) inspired by and dedicated to Julian's W.O.L. international family of Poets. If curiosity is getting the better of you, it's available now at AMAZON books.
