I grew up in Florida. I was afforded the opportunity to experience many wondrous things both in nature and of human nature. I served as a law enforcement officer in Sarasota County and the experience gave me a different view of people. I saw crimes, cruel treatment, disrespect for humans, as well as self-inflicted atrocities. I wondered how people could be so uncaring toward each other, even those they supposedly loved. I was also privileged to witness acts of selfless courage and genuine caring, sometimes bordering on heroic. Each experience prompted me to love my family more and provided fodder for the stories I now share with you, Dear Reader.

 As a Father, Grandfather and now Great-Grandfather I look forward each day to new experiences. My children are successful. My grandchildren are bright and beautiful. My great-grandchildren cause my heart to swell with each passing hour. ​​

 An idyllic childhood gave rise to a thousand adventures. Unable to chronicle all of them, I’ve chosen twenty-two of the most enticing memories to fill the pages of a little book I call Snakes, Spiders and Palmetto-Bugs. Here, I give the readers a peek into my youth. Join a group of youngsters exploring the woodlands, rivers, ponds, and bays of this beautiful Gulf Coast town. Share our adventures and bring along children, grandchildren, anyone young enough to enjoy, or those who may have experienced similar exploits; I suggest the stories be accompanied by a warning not to try this at home. 
This book is available as an e-book or paperback at Amazon.com.
