When I was a kid, I used to run two houses down to grab the daily afternoon paper from my friend’s driveway as soon as the distributor dropped his paper route pile off every afternoon because I couldn’t wait to read the sports section.
My fate was cast. I became a reader and a writer for life.
That exciting relationship took me through the world of daily newspaper journalism, where I worked at the big daily in upstate New York until the really big layoff of 2013 tapped me and a whole bunch of colleagues on the shoulder.
Now I write here every day. I share tales from A Bitty Better, which I share with my dear wife Karen and Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle. My terrific adult daughter Elisabeth and her great boyfriend George and Karen’s son wonderful son Daryl are frequent guest stars. Besides life, my topics are music and sports and movies. You know, my passions.
On the full-time front, I work in public information for the nearby public library. It’s a great place, and I’m fortunate to share experiences with such an interesting community.
