Hello, my name is Victor A. “Al” Hood. I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia with Patty, an absolutely lovely lady who, shortly after we met 54 years ago, said those three little words, “Get lost, loser!” But I persevered and just months later she even said “I do.” We live just one block from the Chesapeake Bay. We have two children, two granddaughters and two dogs.
I started this blog in August 2010 as a way to journal. When I began it was mostly my opinions of events and happenings around the country and the world. Since then, it has evolved into a reminiscence of sorts, a way to talk about my life both past and present as well as the people in it. I really enjoy readers’ comments and insights and you have my word I will respond to each and every one. I’ve gotten to know some pretty neat people along the way.
So sit back and relax and enjoy the blog!
Your pal, Al
