Hi, I’m Sm1ley. I’m 49 years young (though my body is beginning to take more convincing of that than it used to), happily married to a great woman, have three kids, one grand daughter, two dogs and a cat.

I’m exploring the idea of a blog to cover some of the many busy aspects of my life these days.  You see, while family is the most important thing in the world to me, it is NOT the only thing; I work of course; I also read when I can; I am an aspiring author; I make knives; and I practice Jeet Kune Do and Kali (yes, I pay perfectly good money to have my ass kicked three nights a week – I never claimed I was very smart. 🙂 )
