Guy from southern Indiana Free
Born in '54 near the bucolic, pastoral town of Hitchcock (Washington County) in southern Indiana, within earshot of the celebrated Monon railroad ("The Hoosier Line"). Admiring and influenced by my perpetually drunk, brawling, leg-breakin' WWII Battle of the Bulge veteran uncle, I grew up as a hell raisin', fist fightin', hard drinkin', drag racin' jail-bound ne'er-do-well teenager. I soon learned the err of my ways, fortunately, before any major tragedy occurred. Now widowed, utterly repentant, reclusive and retired, barely living off of Social Security, near the idyllic, sylvan town of Furnessville in NW Indiana (Porter County), within earshot of the historic South Shore railway. My final goal now is to try to outlive and take care of the stray cat and her three kittens that my beloved late wife and I rescued back in '19. They are the last of the many dogs and cats that we rescued over the years. More than a few jobs, many lessons learned, far too many regrets, but even more stories.
