Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My profile pic is my Trademark skull. I put it on everything. I can draw or paint it much better than his computer drawn counterpart shown here. I started drawing it in High School and he has evolved into what you see here now. I chose Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck Of The Edmond Fitzgerald" as my Anthem now also. If you check my last recording of it I explain further. My name is Tim and I'm originally from Wheeling, W.Va. I moved to Virginia in 82' when I joined the Navy as a Boiler Technician and got out in 93'. Spent a few years on a farm as a child with mainly milk cows and lots of dogs...both pets and wild ones that lived in the woods. Maybe why I don't have a fear of dogs? Rats, mice (even little meeces) or any rodents with beady eyes on the other hand...I'm terrified! LOL I love animals. Started feeding the critters around my house recently. I get so much joy from them. I was diagnosed with lung cancer in October 2016. It's small cell and no hope to ever cure it, but rather just keep treating it and watch what happens. It'll take me one day and I've come to terms with that. I've had a pretty good life and now I am able to enjoy a little bit more of it before I go. I'm not working so I have time to do things now that I didn't while working, so it's not all a curse. I do enjoy working and friends at work and miss it. I tried recently to return to work, but it only lasted a month or so and I was back in the hospital....could hardly walk. I hope and pray that life is a big loop...a circle and we just go around and one day it starts again. I'd take every bit of it...every tear and joy. I'd love to see and hear you all again! Maybe things would be the same or maybe we could switch it up and do it different until we get it right! lol I'm not looking for pity or drama. I come here to sing and have fun and will continue to do so as long as I can. When the lord wants me to come home he'll take me and I'll be grateful for the time he has given me. I try to get around to listen to folks, but also don't want to spend all day glued to this computer. Nothing else gets done that way and life is too short. I come here to sing, so that is my #1 priority. I don't have the time for contests, and don't feel the need for shiny awards on my profile page. A nice comment from time to time is fine by me or even just a "hi" to show you've been there would be nice. Getting views and no comments SUCKS! There is a lot of talented people on here and out there in the world. Please don't feel that I try to do better than anyone. I just try to do the best I can. I've always loved making people laugh so I love singing silly songs. I love language and pronunciations, so I listen and try to mimic it as much as I can. I have never felt as much as a baby until a colored girl calls me Baybee:) My neighbors were an old colored couple when I was a young boy and I considered them my grandparents. I was always at their house too! lol It hurts me anymore to see walls being built and races being separated. After we spent so long to overcome that. Good and bad people come in all races. Spread love, not hate. I believe in protecting what is ours, but love my fellow man enough to share what I possibly can with him/her.
I think about life, living and death sometimes as we all do I'm sure. Seeing loved ones and heroes and idols go. Well one day I wondered what it would be like to be immortal...even god like with vast powers, time, dimensions, etc. Particularly after watching the Marvel movies and good versus evil. Would such a being be concerned about the happenings on a little blue planet? If you were in this position, what would you do....for the good? It's a tough question! Now although your meaning may be good it may bring about bad results later. You know this because you travel back and forth thru time. The end results may be for the better and so on, but as you see it would be a big loop, like life and death itself. It would all be redundant and pointless in my view point. Yes...more boring than a Hollywood movie. I finally came up with an answer. I'd create things. This and other dimensions would be my gallery! There would of course be an occasional destruction...to make way for the hyper space bypass (If you've ever seen "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). lmao It would be cool to visit places and see how they live, but I'm thinking...low key. No interference. A vacation per say. What would you do?
