Born in 1948 in Nitro, West Virgina to a mother and father of pioneer Texana lineage. Ancestry, 1/4 Swedish, 3/16 Cherokee, the other 9/16 of the purest of the pure 'poor white trash.'
Parents settled in Richardson, Texas in 1955. I attended Richardson schools 1-12 grades and graduated in 1966.
In the fall of '66 I enrolled in the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. As a course of study I concentrated on a well rounded curriculum, elementary imbibing of beer and liquor 101, intermediate marijuana experimentation which led to economics and marketing, and eventually, higher grade courses in international smuggling of marijuana from Mexico and LSD smuggling and sales from California to England and Germany. For electives music and dance grabbed my attention in the form of rock and roll, a smattering of country, and intensive beer barrel honky tonking, and chasing skirts, in other words, getting drunk/stoned/spaced as one can and will do if he is a reprobate, and I qualified as such, and messing around with the women.
