Raymond Bolton lives near Portland, Oregon with his wife, Toni, and their cats, Max and Arthur.

“The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart.”
Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”
Maya Angelou
