This real life adventure is about persistence which has always been with me. Persisting to be the best at whatever I do, would lead me to a successful life. I faced many path ending situations and obstacles along the way. My story is rich with memories, fun, love, adventure, happiness, unbelievable dog escapades, comedy, death, sadness, and conflicts. A conflict with my boss ended with me quitting and my boss retaliating against my wife who later died from brain cancer. A conflict with a neighbor whose Pit Bull attacked causing my broken hip. Is there justice and success?
