Whole bunch of new Gentle Readers are flooding my e-mail Inbox with questions. Forty-six, to be precise. So ...
I learned to write using a fountain pen and a bottle of Waterman's blue-black ink. In my mind that is the way you should write your personal stuff. This blog is a personal journal of mine, so I use heavy italics in dark blue.
Plus, the heavy blue italics have become a bit of a LawDog Files signature.
My mother was born in Texas and has American citizenship. My father was born in Kansas and likewise, has American citizenship. I was born overseas, but under the doctrine of jus sanguini I have American citizenship. My grammar, punctuation and spelling reflect the education I received overseas -- and that is why The LawDog Files occasionally look like they were written by a foreigner.
My being born overseas results from my father being employed in oilfield engineering. I am not a Military Brat, nor a Missionary Kid.
I am also an extremely private person. Outside of work, or the Internet, I am screamingly introverted, and this is why I use the nom de cyber of LawDog and am intentionally vague regarding personal details -- although I am getting better. And, yes, I realize that any script-kiddie worth his salt could find out everything he wanted to know about me with a handful of keystrokes -- but why make it easier for anyone else?
All pictures posted here that aren't downloaded from the Internet are taken by me with a FujiFilm FinePix A345 digital camera.
I still don't have any plans on publishing a book; and I will get the Pink Gorilla Suit Story done sooner or later.
I think that just about covers the range of questions.
