Ron Terry - aka: Yogi Bear, or Smokey Bear
I guess if I had to introduce myself to someone new, I would have to say that I am kinda Odd. I like who I am. I am proud of my GOD given Talents, and I am trying to share them with as many people as possible.
I was born in Andalusia, AL (before Eisenhower) and grew up in North West Florida. I was a Motion picture Photographer doing contract work for the US Air Force (during the intro of SR71 Blackbird, the C5-A transport), Singer/Promoter for a Gospel Quartet, a Diesel Mechanic for Off Shore Oil Boats from Venice,LA to Corpus Christi, TX, a Deputy Sheriff / Private Investigator, a Cowboy on a 10,000 + acre ranch, Restored and Built Old Cars and Hot Rods (had one of our cars in Don Garlits’ Museum), did Radio Announcer / Programmer / Voice Over work (was the voice of Smokey Bear in late 60's). An Owner / Operator of an over the Road 18 wheeler supposedly covering 48 states (although I mostly worked Southeast and West)! Wow, This makes me feel really Old.
But my Best accomplishment and my proudest achievement was marrying the Love of My LIFE, Ms Joy. She has been the support / encouragement behind everything that I do now or have done. She told me years ago, “If your not gonna save those Poems, then quit writing!” So I have been saving ever since.
We have 6 children (3 boys & 3 girls) 11 grandchildren.
We enjoy Movies, Reading, Music, Good Southern style Cooking, Swimming in our Cement Pond and Travel. We both like traveling, and I like showing off Ms Joy.
I Love the USA, I Love and Admire our Troops throughout the World and the job that they do to defend us and keep us free. There is never enough that I can say or do for them. I Love my Church and I Love my GOD. I am who I am, because of the Talents and Personality that came from HIM.
I hope everyone can enjoy my Recitations and maybe find at least One that they really like.
