My web site was named after my dog. He was part of three abandon dogs, Molson, Blue, and Sixpaque. My wife found good homes for two, and we kept the third—Sixpaque.

Now about me, the Author.

With little education, I learned at an early age if an opportunity comes my way; this guy was going to take it. I had a chance to be in the transportation industry, and for the next many years, that was my trade, truck, heavy equipment, bus, boat, and everything mechanical in-between. Some people are naturals at what they do, and that for sure comes in handy. I didn’t come from a line of mechanics, just hard-working people trying to make a living.  So I was not a natural, I persevered and learned as much as I could in my chosen trade and in the end. In my opinion I became one of the best at what I did.

But If I had to describe our family tree it would go like this, my mother was from a quiet place in Nova Scotia, my Dad was a bit like a newer version of a gypsy, was always looking, searching for something, we moved a lot, and as a young person, well that was ok. Still, it played hell with friends and school.  We saw more country at age ten than most people in their life. But everything in your life happens for a reason. My Dad believed he was either born too early or too late for his way of thinking, “Interesting thought.”

(So the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree)

I like photography and being creative in Photoshop.

  • I fix things that’s what I do, and I am not a throwaway person.
  • I am a Libra and believe in balance.
  • I’m aware of the people and my surroundings.
  • I used to believe hard work was noticed and always paid off.

  “I don’t anymore.”

  • I believe if I find it comfortable, then it’s right for me.
  • I learned to take everything at my own pace, not somebody else’s.
  • Maybe I’ll share some of my award-winning photos and some yet to be taking.

You know what they say about people that keep moving,

“No grass grows under their feet,” and that’s me. “I promise not to bore you too badly.”

I thank you in advance for taking the time to read my ranting and maybe throw in some good stuff.

And if you still haven’t quite got a feel for me and where I’m taking you, please check out my Very First Post.
