My "Skid" Marks on life


At the end of 2005, the question of divorce was equally settled upon and during this time, the idea for this website evolved. I was driving back up to Atlanta to get more of my stuff when a thought occurred to me, what kind of mark have I placed on this world? I knew not enough to be "Googled".

I thought I had "forever" but I didn't.

She replied nicely, maybe one day you'll let me read it.

I said, you can....it will soon be on the World Wide Web.


Things may get a lot more interesting around here, so stay tuned and place your mark!
