I had my first blog post in 2006( yes I am that old) and at the time I went by duke1959 which was ok but over time I started a new blog 1959 duke which lasted just about forever. Due to the fact, there was too much pain and suffering in them I closed it down sometime back. Life really wasn’t much fun at that point. Then comes the question as to why now? Circumstances in life have changed things so much of my life. Frankly writing is my passion and if I don’t follow it now when? The old-time clock of life is just chugging along and of course, I don’t have any idea when it will stop!
