Neil Larkins


A "golden-ager" (whatever that is) now living in Arizona, I was born in Kansas and raised in Colorado. Back in the sixties I tried college but couldn't make a go of it. But college wasn't all bad: it was where I met my first wife, Teresa who gave me a wonderful daughter and thirty-three fascinating and adventuresome years until she succumbed to breast cancer. During those years I worked my butt off as a tradesman 'til I retired. In 2005 I met and married a wonderful lady who is everything to me. No, not much interesting about me, but I hope that you will find my stories compelling and make you want to read more. Thanks.
