My Life History

Thank you for taking the time to visit my history page.
I was born in St. Louis Missouri in 1952 the oldest son of Joe Dew and Dorathy Martin.
I'm also the oldest of their 5 children.
I have 3 sisters and 1 brother who is now passed on.

Lost my eye sight at the age of 3 and 5 years of age.
I attended the Missouri School For The Blind from 1957 until 1970.
In 1970 I married my high school sweetheart Janet Swain the daughter of Charles Swain and Betty Colter.
After 30 years of marrage, Janet and I were divorced.
Later that year Judy and I got together.
She is a fine lady and we both have a lot in common.

My wonderful pets.

Judy and I have two wonderful dogs, Whisky and Zoie.
They are the center of our lives and we could not love them more.
Whiskey is a 14 pound West Highland Terrier.
Zoie is a 13 pound Karin Terrier.
Judy is Whiskey's whole world but, I'm Zoie's favorite.

My work history

I started a real job doing dark room work in 1973.
It lasted until 1986, when automation equipment replaced my services.
Since then, I turned to playing the piano and keyboards to make a living.
In September of 1987, I landed a job playing at the Hideaway Lounge.
I've been there 21 years now and I have enjoyed every minute.
