In 2014 life took a dogleg left when it became obvious my parents could no longer function like they once could. Dementia (with both) and other maladies will do that to you. So I headed west to do what I could for them.
Mom lasted six months after my arrival. Dad beat all the odds by sticking around another two and a half years. In our time together I kept them safe and engaged even when the work got more intensive.

- Complete three novels (Damage Control, Desert Vendetta, and The Beta Testers).
- Hack on a few computers, just for fun.
