About

I’m just an average guy, married, 3 beautiful boys, and we live in an old farmhouse in the country.  I love my little family, travel, photography, music of all kinds, the “outdoors”, and kayaking of all kinds.  I have a physical need to be near water, salt and fresh, and get grumpy if I’m not for extended periods of time.  This is my journal of sorts.  It’s not about anything in particular but L’ll likely discuss the same topics at times.  Hope ya read some, and enjoy it.

    • Hi, I’m Tony, nice to meet you. My son is 12 and has autism. I haven’t really written much about him on here but I’m getting comfortable enough with this world that I may start to. Thank you for putting your experiences out there. The more awareness the better!

  6. Hey, I know you read a lot of my stuff, but I noticed you liked my post entitled “Paige”, and I thought you might want to read the analysis/guide for the mentally healthy that I posted about it just now, called “On Dissociation and Multiple Identities”. Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know about it and perhaps help it make a bit more sense.

    Thanks!

  13. Got a joke you might appreciate:

    Dad: Go to your room!

    Son: *grumbling* Jim Morrison was overrated

  22. I have to admit, the one thing that urged me to click the link to your blog was your blog name. It’s irresistible.
    I’m perusing through your blog and I love what I have found. Will continue to read some more if that’s not a problem for I love journal kind of blogs. They help me understand people better. 🙂

    Have a great day.

  26. […] Tone-Loc is absolutely genuine and sincere. No, it’s not his real name but that’s what we’ll call him. Gotta love it right? You know what I love about him? He’s not judgemental nor very opinionated. I think he’s a lot like me but more laid back. He’s married with three adorable boys. Over at his blog you’ll find photo’s of his family and vacations and his variety of music. He’s supportive and encouraging and enjoys meeting new people. https://sonofabeach96.wordpress.com/about/ […]

  35. Thanks for the follow! I am looking forward to checking out your blog. Just glanced at the songs of the day…Anyone who includes: The Killers, Lucinda Williams and Pink Floyd in the same list, is alright in my book! (My middle son’s middle name is Gilmour, after David Gilmour from Pink Floyd). Take care!

  37. sonofabeach – I just want to thank you for your kindness. I just re-posted a post this morning that I felt really nervous about posting. I’ve really come to respect you and I was afraid that you might see my post and shake your head and write me off as a total nut – which… okay, maybe I am a nut… but not a TOTAL nut, right? But I didn’t need to worry. Once again, you showed kindness to me. Thank you.

    • Oh, you’re more than welcome, but no need to thank me. It’s nice to read a fellow believer in reason, peace, and kindness in this current climate facing our country. So, thank you for providing safe harbor. 😊
