My Contact Information ...

Phone ... 


Anyone can reach me via voice or text message at my Google account.

If you are a friend, the best way to reach me is always on my personal cell (8000 number).

I am also available for voice, video and texting on What'sApp if you have access there.

Note: I am no longer using my old LA (9999) number and am not checking in there with any regularity for messages.  I keep thinking about getting rid of that number ... but as I've had it for 20 years ... well it must be a sentimental thing I guess.

Latest Personal News?

Well, 2019 is gone.

A wise man once said about time that ... "the days drag on but the years fly by."  

2019 went by very fast. Hello 2020!

I spent the last few months mostly in Palm Springs enjoying the chance to wrap up 2019 in the Desert. Now, I'm back in Los Angeles for the start of 2020.  I should only be here for a couple of months and plan to return to the Desert in the early Spring (before my birthday in April).

Why LA? Unfortunately, I suffered a nasty accident recently and have some physical injuries that require recovery.  My face, upper chest and legs were bruised up a bit. Nothing broken. Nothing permanent.  But let's just say, I'm not going to win any beauty contests for awhile.  I should be back to normal in a few weeks.  Meantime, it's a lot of basic rest and relaxation for me.   

I'll continue to update this page with my comings and goings as I travel down the happy road of retirement.

I hope your travels these days are good ones.

American Heroes ... 

This picture has always been an inspiration to me. When young Dale Ostrander went to the beach in 2011, he was dragged under the surf by a riptide off the shore.

Dale spent over 20 minutes under water in the Pacific Ocean. When rescuers found him, he had no pulse and wasn't breathing.  

Miraculously, Dale survived.  But only because these amazing heroes rushed Dale to safety.
