About Me

 THE TALKING DOG 

A guy sees a man sitting on a bench with a dog and a sign that says, "Talking Dog for Sale."

The guy looks at the mutt.

"You talk?" he asks.

"I do." the mutt replies.

"So, what's your story?" 

The mutt sits up eagerly, “I knew right away I was pretty special.  I wanted to do some good in the world, so I contacted the CIA.  Right away I was traveling everywhere, sitting in meetings with world leaders – because nobody thought a dog could be an international spy.  But it got old, I retired and here I am.

 The guy asks the man how much he wants for the dog.

“Ten dollars."

The guy says, “Why would you sell this amazing dog so cheap?"

The man grumbles, "He's such a liar. He didn't do any of that stuff."

PUNCH LINE

Like the remarkable talking dog, I too am retired.  Unlike the dog, my resume is not lies, but also may not reflect the type or scope of work that is of interest to me today.

Like the dog, I am loyal, eager to be of service, imaginative and have has all my shots.

I enjoy research. I appreciate good editing and proofreading and strive to do my best at both. Much of my writing has employed humor, reflection and persuasive argument. I enjoy essays but also the challenge of any worthwhile project.
