Happy New Year!!


About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    Many thanks for your always relevant and meaningful posts! Just now sipping a 15yr old Scotch to salute you, your family and the New Year! As a grandfather 6 times, hope you and Clark have a 2019 of delightful days!

    Already all growed up! Amazing! Enjoy the coming year, too!

    (And think a little about those less fortunate than you, those not in Florida, but who live in a freezer six months out every year . . .)
