Over the years, I have been telling stories about my life, most of them funny, few sad. In 1980, a friend began calling them Gary Stories. These are true, at least as true as my memory. In some case I have kept notes in a journal, but enjoy them for stories. Elsewhere, on this site is my blog, which I had been including some of these, but it needs reorganization here is the attempt. The guy at the left is me about age seven, reading of course. Which I loved to do then, if it was dark or too wet to be outside. The guy on the right is what I have become--older, wiser and very confident in who I am, but I have never lost the ability to be the boy. Many friends have told me I am truly young at heart. Thanks. Other parts seem a bit older though. And, still today, a rainy day, a good fire and a good book are a perfect combination. I still like to be outdoors, enjoying good friends and more. My parents were fond of saying that you should not discuss sex, religion or politics. I have found that these are very interesting topics, but that most people are not comfortable explaining what they believe in or why....but that is yet another story.
Stories so far....[this is a work in progress and is being updated every now and then]
