Grandfathers' Learning Adventures

New Adventures!

John has once again proven to be just a nineteen year old at heart! This new adventure covers a new medium for John as he takes on "vlogging" to

produce a series of vignettes about his family. Vlogging allows him to narrate the story himself and include family photos and documents to bring the messages to life. It takes a few weeks to put each vlog together. He adds each one in sequence as it is completed. However, you can browse them at will. Be sure to check them out as they're added.

Amazon has published my audio podcasts in printed form! You can get the book either as a hard copy or as an ebook.

John has written a novel!!!

Oh yes, it is about the lifetime of a dancing master—what else would you expect John to write about?But the story may not be what you think it is, and he submits it with some trepidation because it may at times be very private and personal (not something you would expect from John). Be sure to read the disclaimer!!!

Life of a don whose name is John

John is now ninety-one years old outside, but feels like nineteen inside!  People say he doesn't look his age and his doctors say he is in very good health—considering his age!  This website gives him a chance to share some of his life experiences.  Here is a biography of John recently written by a high school freshman for his journalism class; he titled it  Dancing Dairyman.  Feel free to have a look and you may be inspired to be a maverick, too!
