Never too late to have a happy childhood!

Many say… are you crazy?  Isn’t it dangerous? Anything can happen! … Hmmm, yes, yes, and yes.  Almost interesting.

To myself:  I have not gone to many places, and I take encouragement from those that have gone before me.  Almost everyone had some difficulty and from all that went wrong, upon their return, they had much to tell.

I guess I will have much to tell… So, hasta la vista!

John and Alberto

We both live in California, near San Jose which is about an hour south of San Francisco. we have been friends for the better part of ten years. We are both retired, yep, the rat race is ended for both of us… so these two rats will bail out of this local ship.

Alberto Sevilla

Born in Lima Peru. Migrated to the US in 1965.

I came to do university studies. First to the University of Miami, Florida (’65-69) and graduating from Ohio State University with a BS in Civil Engineering in 1972.

Flower Children, Bob Dylan and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida attempt to shape my life during my college years (1965-1972) leaving a bitter-sweet memory. The university was plagued with peace pretenders and buzz-word compliant copy-cats living a fantasy: To live like a pauper but calling home for money whenever the going got too rough. Bitter-sweet.

1973. I met a blue eyed, blond hair, about 5′-3″ and… very pretty. Peru never had a chance to get me back, and I stayed in the US eventually becoming a citizen in 1983. Now, currently residing in California near San Francisco. Two kids… kids? Well one is 24, not quite a professional student but close (aiming for a PHD) and the other is 18 going to college wanting to become a music teacher (the family charmer).

California. I like it here… and I do not like it here. But then I suppose that such would be the same no matter where I go… so, I adjust and conclude that I like it here.

Prone to philosophizing and to view the world with rose colored glasses. Life has treated me well to the point of attempting all kinds of adventures.

I am a happy guy, no further explanation needed on this.


John Carlson

Well, who knows, unless he decides who he is… and decides to tell us. But will he?

We all await some baloney coming from him some time. Don’t count on that as he at times has an understanding of privacy. Do not let that derail you, he is still a nice guy.

So… stay tuned
