Welcome to my little corner of the Blogosphere!
(The short version)
Hello, my name is Rick, I live in Las Vegas, Nevada.
I am my children’s father, and the son of deceased parents who I never knew. I’m an east coast guy living in a southwest desert town. An older guy trapped within a young man’s mind. I was once a sibling to many but known to none. After 63 years that all changed.
Married and divorced way too many times. For many years I was a planner. Now I’m a writer and a poker practitioner, a mind sport of sorts. I have other interests as well.
I am a man of faith, a patriot, a student of the arts, and history. I love words and the various ways to combine them. My pet peeves include wasted youth, wasted lives, suck-outs on the river and drivers who don’t know how to use turn signals. I enjoy conversation, constant contact and B&R chocolate ice cream.
My life has been one of complications and implications and, as you might come to realize, a not so ordinary one at that. Every photo in the montage above, speaks a little about me.
I’m a champion of facts, the mortal enemy of innuendo, speculation, hyperbole and utter nonsense.
This is who I am. I hope you’ll come back again finding the time you spend here worthwhile.

I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means…. What is going on in these pictures in my mind?
