I was born and raised near St. . Louis , Missouri , and later, moved to Chicago , Illinois (1971) . Music was always a part of my childhood. I played Little League baseball from I was 7 or years old, until 13. Met the love of my life, Rose Mary , and we're "Married with Five Children".I like long car rides and music from the Fifties , Sixties , and seventies.I like romance , sports , amusement parks and teaching. I am a G.E.D. tutor , retired softball player ( 16in. Clincher ). I learned how to "Step" at age 14 , and have grown to love the dance , a Chicago original . I do a lot of charity work , and was involved with politics , to a degree. I have never had a headache , stomach - ache , or a bad day .I neither smoke , drink , do drugs , take medication , nor eat pork . I think that I have the greatest life , and this fact shows every time I hear a sweet song on the radio . I have six living grandchildren: Angelo, Bradley(BJ), Armand, Aniyah, Journey, and my 1 yr. old twin: Amayah, and one deceased , "RJ".
