Love to sing....
don't know if Im any good at it (profound 70% bilateral hearing loss since birth),
but my momma always said "if you can't sing pretty, sing loud" LOL

* a note about my hearing:. It is underdeveloped nerve as i was a premie. I can here low frequencies, and high frequencies but in between is spotty, some i can barely hear, some i cannot hear no matter how much its amplified. Sadly mist if the loss is in the range of the human voice.
It was dicovered when i was 6, prior to that they thought i had mental issues. There were no hearing aids st the time that could really help. In order to make what i couldnt hear audible sounds i could here were painfully loud. They did thier best they could with the tecnology of the times.
I do not sound or act deaf because my parents spent a fourtune sendinf me to Helen Keller school for the deaf, learned sign launguage, lip reading, how to speak and pronounce properly, as well as a tutor. I re.ember it was intense training. Now the digital world has arrived my new hearing devices are able to amplify only the ones i cant hear while keeping the ones i can at a sane level. So i can hear kida sorta. Is hard to explain but in music notes are missing, in vocals its choppy because so many tones i am just deaf to. Some i couldt hear before i now can. My dear sweet wife helps me get my songs right by being my ears.
I hope that answered everyone's questions.

My Pop was a body and fender man, with a passion for art, and did work as a advertising artist/illustrator, for a time he also worked as a Disney imagineer for a while, they used his conceptual drawings of the 7 dwarfs and wicked witch in Snow White,
He looked and sounded like Dean Martin, and worked as an impersonator for a while. So as you can imagine i grew up listening to the Rat Pack.
Then he used the money he saved up to achieve his dream of owning a horse ranch and his own body and fender shop, ending up being the top rated shop in the county for over 22 years, before retiring.
And our ranch produced 2 state champions, and 1 national.
