Cherished Stories

Marilyn in camouflage These stories occurred over quite a few years of my life. Some are favorites - I hope the number of these grows over the next few years. Others are instructive, as well as descriptive; they are placed in the Miscellaneous section.

Most of my stories happened during the time when my kids (Jennifer & Michael) were between the ages of 4 - 12.

Hunting has been a favorite recreation for me throughout my life and the picture here shows Marilyn, in camouflage, on a hunt. My motto is, "If you can't eat it or shoot it, it is worthless."

Another organization, Caring Bridge, has been very helpful during my recovery time. They allow us to maintain a website and Marilyn regularly updated it to keep all our friends up to date with my progress during the first year after my stroke. Here is a link to that website: CaringBridge.org for Mike Dorough. Also, notice that there is a link under Miscellaneous to Marilyn's story of my stroke. I used her story to describe much of my stroke progress.

As you can see, I tend to love outside recreation. From this point of view the Western U.S. is a fabulous place to live. I grew up in Texas, worked for years in Oregon, worked and now reside in Arizona. I have visited many National Parks, but the ones that stay with me the most are Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain in Estes Park, Glacier, Grand Teton, and The Grand Canyon. The greatest place to see and camp is Crater Lake, Oregon.
