This is the blog site that I was going to use for my writing. I posted three books on this blog site and part of a forth. I was hoping for comments but no comments ever came. So, I am going to rethink what I post here.
My name is Christopher D. Cole; I am a retired Technical Sergeant in the United States Air Force, which means I can be recalled to active duty but at my age (I was born October 14, 1949) and with my health it is extremely unlikely but it can happen. For my entire Air Force career I worked in Avionics, Electronic Warfare. I maintained the equipment that was designed to prevent our people from getting shot down. The equipment did this by warning the aircrew that threats were targeting them and either making the threat miss or blinding the threat source. It didn’t always work but it worked well enough that a lot of families did not lose a loved one.
I am an Episcopalian, attending Grace-St. Paul’s Episcopal Church here in Tucson and I am somewhat active in the church but not as much as I used to be.
I play table-top role-playing games. At present, 2018, my group is playing Star Wars as opposed to the fantasy games derived from Lord of the Rings and other similar fantasy novels. Plus a horror fantasy game based upon the D&D setting Ravenloft.
I like web comics and read several. I also read a lot of fiction, fantasy and science-fiction, as well as history, especially aircraft history, and religion.
I am presently active politically in the Libertarian Party, I am an officer in the Pima County Libertarian Party; as of 2018 I am the Chair.. I routinely “chew out” the Pima County Board of Supervisors.
I do a personal at gruundehn.wordpress.com with personal entries on an almost daily basis. I have also made a few entries there that had nothing to do with either.
As you can see from my picture, I have a beard. I hate to shave and haven’t shaved since June 1987. You can see some of the probably 4,000+ books I own. Since that picture was taken, in 2016, I have moved and no longer have as many books, perhaps down to a thousand or so.
