Louis L'Amour, Jim Kjelgaard, Robert Fulghum, Bill Lentz, Jack London, Brent Westbrook, John Eldredge, Tommy Williams....some were authors, and some were just people that were placed in my path for a season and their names would make no sense to anyone but me....unless you knew that I shouldn't even be here today, and some of these people played a part.

 

Other influencers: Mr. Blackwell and his Westwood FIshing Camp, the late LeRoy Theune, my CPA who happens to be the sister that I never had, Tracey Wallace (the other sister I never had), Patch Adams, Neo, William Wallace, and Mike Hayes.

The more I thought about it, they are probably two extremes...but come'on now, the same message: be a good person!  :D

My biggest influence was a family friend, John Wade. He was one of the Chosin Few. I grew up thinking if I can be half as tough that nothing could hurt me.

Temple Grandin has probably inspired me more than anybody else.  I already knew I wanted to commit my life to making the world a better place for animals, but she showed me that someone could actually make an entire career out of that.

Who is wearing the tag in their ear?  JustKidding, JustKeely!  She is a very interesting lady.


Still trying to figure out  don't like this new forum style.

Did I mention Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart?  I spent a lot of time listening to them (still do when Mrs. Z isn't around).  I guess Bill Harkleroad ( Zoot Horn Rollo )would be considered an influence, too .  He is important, or he wouldn't be on Wikipedia, right?

Ha.  I didn't click to who what was at first.  I thought it was that weird dude that painted the forests scenes with a putty knife on tv. lol.  Seeing it again I do not know how I possibly confused them.  Messner is far cooler in all respects.  Except, maybe, painting forests with putty knives.
