Below is my resume, but that is the boring stuff.

When I was a kid, I did stupid things just like everyone else.

 

My youthful choice of stupidity included, jumping off corn quonsets into hay stacks (painful), jumping over our house with a 125 Kawasaki motorcycle (successful), going water skiing when there was still ice on the water (bad idea), and ripping flesh from my shin bone trying to show off how high I could jump, and then sewing it back up. (that stings, and you need pliers as well as a needle and thread).

I have cleaned pigsties and toilets, loaded iron and stacked concrete, detasseled in the cornfields and stacked hay, been a driver, a store clerk, a waiter, a newspaper boy, and a worker on an assembly line.  I have worn most hats.

 

In the military I have walked through machine gun nests,  been blown down runways, and have huddled half frozen on the Korean plains during operation Team Spirit.   

 

I am just an average Nebraskan, originally from Broken Bow.  My family has been in Nebraska for 7 generations.  I know what Nebraska was, and what we have lost.  I want it back.
