I was born September 18th, 1969 in Austin, Texas.
I'm 6ft 3in, about ~210pds, and as you can see -
I'm ugly as can be! (But I look so happy! Right?)
My family has traveled all over the world(oil business), and I have done a little traveling my self. That was a state of sheer stupidity on my part, as I was in the USNavy at the time, but I made some good friends and found out the world can be a damned unfriendly place... You'll notice the large number of "fictional links" about on my site, it's the product of a suposedly fertile imagination, and far too much time with nothing better on my mind!
I did learn something else in my pathetic little experiences:
I also learned plenty about yardwork...
That's about the sum of things so far, but who knows, I might actually dare to say more...
On to brighter subjects then..!
I have no idea why, but this wonderful person came into my life:
And to my great surprise, we're now MARRIED(Eeek!) We're even expecting our first child! (The very thought chills...) I met her on July 22nd, 1998. (Oh what a wonderful day, even if we did miss the movie!)
She did not come alone though, Maca is now with us as well!
Maca can be cute... But she often gets into trouble...
And she's been stuck with me ever since, poor woman...
As if THAT was not enough, now Bonnie has delivered our brand new daughter!
"Summer Aylene Shannon Steele"
Born July 30th, 1999
At 8 pounds 13 ounces(also my birth-weight), and 21 inches long.
We even decorated her very own cage..!
I also have a shot of some of my friends, that's Paul "The Pun-master" Means(check those horns...), Tammy Cox(long-time buddy of Bonnie's), Jeff "the CMA guy"(I forget his last name), Jill "Lady Lillandria" Notgrass(my chum for eons), and Bonnie (previously Owens)...
And now a RARE shot of Dawn..! She's a long time friend now working in the New York area on Movie Set Design...
After a long pause, new updates!
Summer is growing FAST, we now own a house, and we're doing well.
My long lost family has contacted me,
they are also Steeles..!
*Days of sorrow are upon me...*
Bonnie and I are breaking up, Summer will be living with Bonnie, my life is a shambles...
The Holiday Season of 2001 will be among the darkest of my entire life,
by the New Year, they will be moved out...
Bonnie's back with Summer!!! We've worked a lot of stuff out, and things are LOOKING GREAT!
June 24th, 2003 - More good news, after a long stretch, Bonnie found work again, and we're getting ahead of the bills once more. I've got a great majority of details worked out for my invention, though I've had some trouble finding a way to get it marketed and patented. Summer's almost 4, and we're due to see her Grandfather-in-law's folks this July 4th. This will be the first time Summer has met them, and we have great hopes that she will remember them kindly. I've made contact w/my long lost half-sister(that sounds a little too distant to me), Brandy, and we'll be in constant contact from now on! Hopefully, there will be pictures of more of the Steele Family up soon, along with more pictures of everyone else...
November 2003- Well, Bonnie's started
massage school, and we're chugging away hoping the bills won't catch
up before we get the school paid off. Various friends of the family
are having some really cool things happening in their lives, and I'm
hoping a little of that will shine on us too..!
November 12th, 2003: Our favorite munchkin was on TV! I've got the newscast clip HERE(WARNING, it's LARGE)..!
-July 5th, 2004: Well, we've had to move to yet another apartment, as expenses outstripped our meager income(YAG!) again. I just found out my half-sister(Christine, aka Brandy) has been "on the lamb"(run away) for 2 WEEKS now, and I really hope she's safe and well, but I want her home ASAP..! Summer has grown immensely, and will be attending the reviled public school system this fall, I can only hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Bonnie's nearly completed her Massage School, and will be taking clients this fall as well. I'm seriosly hunting for high-paying jobs overseas, and hating our contiuously-broke living condition. I'm hoping my good friend James Cocen will let me help him, he's had a rough ride, and I think he needs a safe harbor. Enough ranting for now...
-November 30th: Yep, it's official, I'm completely INSANE. I've signed up for a "CNS" degree at ITT, am writing a module for Talislanta, and holding down my regular job too. Bonnie's got her temperary licsence for massage, and Summer's in school..! AcK!!!
-January 14th, 2005: Jeez,
my Grandfather(Jack Harmon) dies the day before the Huygen probe
lands on Titan, and I learn that I may have scored the second
Talislanta Printed Module gig(after finishing the first one 3 months
ahead of schedule). Summer scars her knee good, and Bonnie takes her
State Exam for Massage. Busy much? And it's only mid-month...
-July 8th, 2013: The
changes since my last update are Legion. I've
been married twice, landed a solid job for the last 5 years, &
gained effectively THREE new kids. I've found a woman who is a Real
Survivor, & Challenges me every day to be a better man. Sadly,
I've all but lost my first born daughter, Summer, as she has chosen
to stay with her mother throughout her High School years. This puts a
certain end to the Line of Steele, I will be the Last of my Kind
-Forever. I can only hope my forefathers can forgive my failure.
January 2014: Another year gone & more on my plate than ever! As of Feb. 23rd 2013 I have Lawfully TERMINATED my "US Citizenship", and since have become a "State National of the Republic of Texas". Likely you don't know what that means (because your parents were never told either), but it is all laid out HERE. My reasons are legion, my decision made Very Difficult, and with over a year's Serious Consideration and Research. I've been online a lot about it at my Facebook, where you're welcome to ask more if you're interested.
There will be more, to be sure, but enough for now!
Oh, of course I always offer a path back...
