Extended Profile

I love classic country music. Both to listen to and to collect. I have an extensive collection. Also, have just about all the popular 50's & 60's rock 'n roll music. Can listen to days and days worth and not hear the same song by the same artist twice.

Next I like to read. Think I caught this from my daughter, as she's been a book worm all her life. Put on a Merle Haggard cd, pour me a cup of coffee, and give me a Stuart Woods or Harlan Coben mystery and I'm good to go.
