A new and different look at the Amicus, John Cole, former radio announcer and newspaper reporter…. and… father… which is why…
A recent family reunion of fifteen grandchildren, eight boys, seven girls, reminds me of what life is all about.
I have had a life many would aspire to, ran from an abusive step father at age twelve, joined the US Navy at seventeen, married at eighteen, a baby girl at nineteen.
Toured Europe on a motorcycle, thus, “Natasha”, let Miss Canada drive my ‘57 T-Bird, the one with t hr port-holes, drove my little girl around in a ’58 Austin-Healy Mk 3000. Interviewed Joan Baez... Had Don Ho and his band as guests on my radio program many times. Built and sailed a boat from Miami into the Caribbean, cut down 1400 trees with a 32” Stihl saw as a logger and cut beef as a butcher… Been to Alaska, loved a Canadian girl and served fifteen months in Goose Bay, Labrador as an Air Force communications supervisor.
But my six children have proven to be the greatest delight of all… hi guys…
I have some life to share with you…
Got arrested, along with a nineteen year old co-ed from the University of Hawaii, for painting a Pink line down the main street of Waikiki on St. Patrick’s day… Judge said had we painted it green…
I loved my work as a DJ and radio and television talk show host, loved even more the newspaper reporting for high school sports, and play by play game broadcasting… and now I write naughty stories about all the girls I met and then some… in the hope of entertaining you for a while…
