But, first I’ll say a bit of “Bio” about me: Don’t know how to tackle this, so I’ll just wing it.
I grew up in a family of four kids - two older sisters, one younger brother - with a vegetable garden, a tennis court, lots of l books; all in the depression years of the 1930’s. I have always been mechanically inclined, always been the guy to fix the lawnmower, collect old motors with flywheels, etc. Can’t explain why I like to write. I’m a slow reader, but a reader nevertheless. I like all kinds of “good” music; play ukulele/mandolin. My wife and I attend plays/theatre… and always have too many interests going on at the same time.
And that’s my quick intro. Now about this website:
Troy, N Y, like any other small city, has its own culture, characteristics, idiosyncrasies and history. In my case, I write first person accounts about:
How Rototillers came to be made here in Troy
My interest in urban gardening
Local history that has come to my attention
Some of Troy’s diverse and often incognito architecture
And maybe I’ll just throw in a few other stories that I thought were funny, strange or compelling for some other reason.
So please read, tell me what you think/ make comments/give feedback. I will respond and print your messages with dignity and respect, if you give me your OK to do so…
