Wow, this thread went from introducing yourself to turkey.
I'll play, I have nothing to hide.
I'm Bill and I'm 64. I was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin but lived most of my life in San Antonio Texas where I am now. I finished my grade school here. I dropped out of high school and went into trade school for auto mechanic. That's how I made my living but I went into automatic transmission as a specialty.
I am retired (thanks god). Back in 91 I went got my GED and got in college for computers because I like computers. I didn't like the classes required for this major so I dropped out and just work on computers at home. I've built all my computers.
I am not like those who go for the cutting edge computer technology but I buy the last year's tech (so to speak) as they are pennies on dollars. My PCs are more than enough for what I do with it. Like right now I'm running an i5 system (Ivy Bridge) and my previous system, a Sandy Bridge i3 is in the closet for keeps. I love computers and I'd like to keep up with the tech for knowledge.
I like reading but I don't care for fiction so I like reading real stuff like the news and techs in areas like mechanics, electronics, guns and computers just to name a few. Hell, I like reading manuals LOL. Anyway my shelves is full of Uncle John Bathroom Reader series which is full of interesting stuff to read about and covers practically everything.
Knowledge is power.
I love to play my guitar, I have two custom made guitars, two amps which one is tube and the other SS bass. I have an Adrenalinn III box which is "Beat Synced Multi FX - Amp Modeling - Drum Box" Sweet pedal and loads of fun for jammin. I used to have a band back in the late 60s, The Brazen Men, and we played Surf Instro (instrumentals). I and my drummer friend stuck together for a long time, with members come and go. Sometimes there's just the two of us and I covered lead, rhythm and bass while my friend tear it up on his drums. Wish I could do it again, lots of fun.
Oh yeah, I never married and I had girlfriends who wanted to get serious but I got cold feet. I never wanted to get married because it makes me feel like I'm tied down and I don't like that. I rather have lady friends but lately that's getting rare as I'm getting pretty old and not interested.
So far, I never met miss Right, whoever that is.
I live with my sis and we own the house. Our living arrangement is 50-50 and we're both on SS (she's older than me and she's divorced). We get along quite well (I'm glad). We do whatever we want.
I like guns and I only have two because I don't like collecting but rather for home defense and I like to go to the range and shoot. I have an MP15 556 carbine and a Sig P250c 40sw. That's after I bought and sold my guns then I'm settled with these.
I kinda miss my HiPoint 40sw carbine though.
