I grew up in Eastern North Carolina in the small rural town of Aurora. My early years were spent working on my grandparents' tobacco farm and exploring my world of family, friends and school.

After marrying my high school sweetheart in 1972, I moved to Lakeland, Florida where I spent my adult years raising a beautiful family and working in the citrus industry with over 39 years of manufacturing management experience, selling real estate and being a writer wannabe, all at the same time.

In my spare time I attended and graduated from Florida Southern College while working full time and starting a family.

I am still married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 beautiful children and two wonderful grandchildren.

Interesting

The was very interesting but way too slow. It was hard for me to keep going because the monologues were long and boring. I didn't enjoy this book.

“Life is not always easy but in the scheme of things it is fun and gets better every day.”
Larry B. Gray

“A problem is something or someone who presents a difficulty or obstacle for you to overcome.  It has a negative connotation and tends to direct your actions to a negative response.  Most often this will lead to less than desirable results. An opportunity offers you a chance to achieve or excel in accomplishing a task. By defining the “problem” as an opportunity you change it from a negative to a positive and you begin to approach solutions from this positive point of view. Usually this will result in a positive and successful outcome.”
Larry B. Gray, Problem Solving - Dealing With Employee Issues

“There is an old saying that “inside every small problem is a large problem trying to get out.”  If you have lived life for any length of time you know this is true.  Small problems have a way of growing very rapidly into large, out of control problems.”
Larry B. Gray, Problem Solving - Dealing With Employee Issues

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

“While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.”
Chinua Achebe, Anthills of the Savannah

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
St. Augustine

“Life is not always easy but in the scheme of things it is fun and gets better every day.”
