Diamond in the Rough

Well -- it's official -- it's 00.02 hrs on Nov. 1, 2011, I'm 50 yrs old sitting here in South Africa, and I've just started my first blog.  Welcome to my world.

I've never done anything like this before -- not sure what to say.  Do I start at the beginning, or just jump in from where I'm at and go off on random, exciting tangents?  I just don't know -- but I know I have to do something because ever since I was a kid, I've been told I should be a writer.  And now that I'm older and have some eclectic "sea stories" to tell about life, and my perspective on things, people the world over have been pestering me to put it to "print".  Well, these days, I guess you put it to blogs or vlogs.  And so at 50, I take my first baby steps into blogdom.

I hope you enjoy the story, and the many faces of "me".  Stay tuned .. I'm still just a diamond in the rough.
