I know that a lot of people who read my book and visit this website are going to find it odd that a 44-year-old English teacher in good health considers himself an "Old Guy." There's a reason for that. To me, being an Old Guy is something to be proud of. I'm one of the last of the Baby Boomers. We're survivors. I figure I'm well into the second half of my life, and that makes me part of an elite group, one that should be revered by the rest of the world. The problem, as I see it, is that too often, the Old Guys are given short shrift in our society, and I'd like to see that change. We have so much to offer the world in terms of talent, experience, wisdom, and resources. It's about time we, and the rest of the world, see that. I want to see all the Old Guys band together and make the world a better place by making full use of our talents to help and serve others. If you've read my book, you know my story. Now, I'd like to hear yours. If you're a Baby Boomer, an Old Guy, a "Youngun," or just an interested observer, I'd love to hear from you.
Welcome to the website dedicated to my first published book, The Old Guy Rules. This site is for all my readers and honorary Old Guys out there, especially you Baby Boomers. I want you to have a place to vent frustrations, give feedback on the book, have a laugh or two, and tell me about yourselves. If the book does well enough, I'd like to someday write a book full of stories I get from my readers, so if you have a remarkable or even unique story that you'd like to share, please do so; I'd LOVE to hear from you. You can email me at email@example.com with anything you'd like to share. While I may not get back to you immediately, I promise to try to reply as soon as possible. If you are one of the people who bought my book, please sign the guestbook and/or email me at the above address, as I'd like to thank you personally for doing so and helping me in the neverending task of paying for my daughter's college education. If you have any suggestions for improving the site, I'd like to hear those as well. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy the site. It is, and always will be, a work in progress dedicated to all the Old Guys everywhere.
