Random Thoughts, ideas,
musings, and incidental blogging
in early 2008, so he has lots of time to manage
the various escapades that he has in mind. He had spent some
time in the military, then finished a working career in a public
service field that is not important here. His experimental
"retirement beard" seems to be important, though.
more important is that he is now loose upon the world and will
likely meet and crash into many people as he stumbles, rumbles,
and bumbles along.
a wide variety of recreational activities (although he sucks at
most of them), traveling in various forms, and sometimes just
lazing around doing nothing. He spent a few years in
Europe for Uncle Sam, and has visited a few touristy places but
has many more places to see before he's done.
Martin is an
experienced SCUBA diver, a bad golfer, a dangerous bowler, a
decent dart-thrower, a lightweight drinker, a pretty good
motorcycle rider, a good teacher and trainer, and a rusty and
slow martial artist. He is legally prohibited from singing
or dancing in public, he has no musical ability whatsoever (much
to his regret), and he should be avoided on the ski slopes.
He is computer literate and can draw a straight line if he has a
straight edge to use.
Mostly, he's a
decent guy who can be a lot of fun -- but usually in moderation
and sometimes at inappropriate times.
Don is a
Klingon in a world full of Ferengi.
Don rode with
Martin through Central America and most of the way around South
America from October, 2008 through February, 2009. Don will add
to his bio if he ever gets interested enough...
