Michael A. Skrien:

I am a lifelong attorney specializing in criminal defense of indigents. I have a wife, three children, two ex-wives, and several debt collectors who depend upon me. My hobbies are travel, guitar, outdoors, and writing. I ran a marathon once and learned 26.2 miles is a long way on foot.
As an ex-bartender at the Ritz-Calton, and ex substitute teacher, and lawyer, I have been exposed to an extraordinary amount of mankind's follies.
I hope I can relay some of that humour in an acceptable manner for your enjoyment.

Ian Curtress:

I started with limericks when at school. These were popular (not with the Masters) but as they were thought entertaining by my peers I continued on an off for some years.
However, all that was to change dramatically. From an idyllic childhood I was thrown into the horrors of war. I am in my 95.year [Feb 2021]. Born and bred in a London we were in no hurry to leave, the result of which was bedtime was in an Anderson shelter with fingers crossed night after night.
In the fullness of time I was in the Services. (Royal Horse Guards)(Horses were Scout and Armoured cars in Recce unit).
Did not take up writing again until retirement with the exception of a request or a particular event in the Family. I was jolted back into consistent efforts following the loss of my Wife of 65 years, a few years ago. It became a panacea and saviour.
Now my two loves are the Environment and Humour. The former not being humorous.
I have also dabbled in “long” short stories.
I have been published occasionally in Cotswold Life and I had a book of poems published a few year ago,
Do They Really Know Me.
Humour is required more than ever now with Corvid as it was during the war. It’s the British Way and has served us well.
You can possibly guess, I have written a few around the screwing down of my wooden overcoat, not  always appreciated by my lovely Family.
My immediate aim is to hang in there until some sort of normality and responsibility is returned to everyday life and I can leave a safe World for my four GreatGrandChildren.
