I have always loved to sing. I was a first lead soprano in everything they had in high school back then. I've also been in a few bands (country and jazz) down through the decades since the late 70's and even right before I found SingSnap. So glad I found this place! It's been a lot of fun so far! I do play guitar and piano.
Please sing with me any time on any song you like! I LOVE that!! It's so much fun to hear what you do with them!
Still working my construction business of 46 years. I grew up working on houses (and barns and tearing off shingles and re roofing skating rinks!) with my Dad/Grandpa/Uncle who were all custom home builders in the 50's and 60's...went from there to working for 14 awesome contractors in OKC, came back here 31 years ago and took over the family building business. I've never worked full time, but I try to keep fairly busy.
I try to have fun but almost everything I've tried the wrenches get thrown in. I hope that doesn't happen but if it does I'll deal with it I always have before...I will again. Life can be so much sad for so many of us. The happys don't even know.
"We don’t shine best when we’re standing on the mountaintop. We shine best when we’ve been kicked to the curb, and forgotten, and left alone to burn, and we still choose to fight like hell and rise from the ashes and build ourselves all over again.
We don’t shine best when we’re popular. We shine best when we’ve been left out, and told ‘sorry, this table’s full,’ and we choose to get out our hammer and nails and build a new table and include everyone who has ever been left standing on the outside looking in.
We don’t shine best when things are easy. We don’t shine best when the roads are pre-paved and already cleared for us.
We shine best when life is hard, and we don’t let it harden us."
