I am cheerful and friendly, but am apt to have an emotional life. I like to have several lines of effort going at once. I am a good talker and promoter yet seldom worry over anything.
At times, I can be impatient, and impulsive. I have the ability to bring an idea to completion. I can express myself joyously and constructively. I am prophetic! I am frank, methodical! I believe in law, system and order!
My desire is to inspire and lead... to control another's affairs, would be tragedy...
I am giving, courageous and bold! I am action oriented, energetic and strong! I want to make a difference in the world. My attitude often attracts my clients to cultural interests, politics, social issues, and the cultivation of their creative talents.
That's me at your service??

Johnny Buss, also a dear friend, had a few of us over for a Lakers game. John was one of the many talented people Carlene Carter friended me to. (JUNE CARTER/JOHN CASH FAMILY)
Before this picture was taken in California, I got to travel on the Doobie liner Martin 404 for a few stops on the Minute by Minute Tour.
I had a crush on Michael McDonald and my dear friend Keith Knudsen knew it! Keith was always pushing or tripping me into Mike. He got slapped for his skulduggery every time Michael wasn’t looking.
Mike never knew about my crush and Keith didn’t quit his pranks until Michael met Amy. Keith and I then witnessed Michael getting slapped by Amy on a few occasions when Michael engaged his own skulduggery and pranks on Amy.
All in fun back in the day when slaps were reserved for pranksters pulling shenanigans. Michael got slapped a lot, too!
In fact, the whole band and crew were quite the pranksters! Nicest guys that ever hit the Big Time.
NEVER BECAME TOO BIG TO IGNORE EVEN THE SMALLEST SINGLE FAN.
