Oh gawd, where do I start here eh? Not going to go too into detail here, but it'll give you the background!
Let's go from leaving school!
I got married (for the first time) in 1983 and was blessed, two years later, with a daughter. 18 months after that, a son followed, but I was already heading for my first divorce by then!
When my first marriage went tits-up, I moved away to Lyme Regis in Dorset. Met another girl, got married, realised it to be a big mistake, got divorced again!
After a number of crises, including some oik torching my car and losing my girlfriend, I had a breakdown. Bit of a big one, hospitalised for a while in the Psych Ward, but hey, ho! I lost my younger bro to leukaemia, bless him got another girlfriend, lost her to another bloke, had another breakdown (just a minor one this time), spent a year living in a Transit Van, got a flat, got another girlfriend (who I'd fancied for donkey's years), crashed my Harley, had half my right leg amputated, lost the girlfriend, moved into another flat, had copious amounts of the brown stuff thrown at me, BUT I'M STILL HERE!
Now, don't get me wrong, there's been lots of positive stuff and people in my life. Many of the people that I've met along the way, are still really good friends. I've tried to ditch the toxic ones and keep the good ones (and believe me, they're GOOD). If you're reading this, you're probably one of them.
Probably the biggest thing of my life, was losing my leg! I have a separate page for Stumpy. Please do take a look, but it's not for the squeamish!
So, "what's happening now", I hear you call? Basically, I've moved again! Sticking to the south coast (cuz I love it) I'm now down in Brixham! I was back on 2 wheels, for a while, but have recognised that that is not such a good thing! Seems there is life in the old dog yet!
Talking of dogs, I now have Ozzy. Ozzy is a long-legged Jack Russell (not a Parsons), who has his own Facebook page! Check him out at https://www.facebook.com/ozzdog
