Hi, I thought it might be kind of interesting to introduce myself to the internet community on this site with the hope and expectation that as I continue to strive toward a better understanding of the community and it's residents, I will have developed some friendships and affiliations along the way.
What best describes me? Tony is the name that most of my friends call me. Some of 'em call me other things but what are friends for? So who is Tony? Well, I'm a family man with three beautiful daughters, three terrific grand children and the love of my life; my unbelievably wonderful soulmate and wife. Her participation in our family falls into the 'cannot-do-without' category, so I guess she can be described as the "linchpin" that keeps our family together. Inevitably that family will continue to grow without our direct participation and I'm going to enjoy watching it happen. As testament to that ideal, I just witnessed two of the younger members of the family achieve their respective karate degreed belts today and couldn't have been more proud and jubilant at the same time.
My role in the family is one big combination of some little parts: Provider, worrier, disciplinarian, consoler, comedian, part-time teacher, big bear to grand-kids, etc. I'm Dad, the original ATM, according to the front of some T-Shirts. I'm a little complicated at times but who isn't in their own way?
My objective is to seek, find and distribute as much joy and happiness I can this holiday season. Good tidings come in many different ways and you can rest assured that each one of us will welcome our share in our own unique fashion on this holiday and for holidays to come.
Make this the very best holiday possible. Be well and Stay healthy!
