Blogging is really popular, and the available names are really limited. “Dave’s Blog” seemed too simple and was taken, and I really ain’t into the obscure blog names, you know, like “Ants crawl in my Room” or “Honey on my Body”. Although if you have honey on your body, most likely, ants will be in your room.
I chose “On the Road with Dave” for two reasons.
First, I was an aspiring comedian in my college days, (I’m a ventriloquist, among other things) and in the past year I have been practicing my craft again and was going to make a trip to New York City to attend a few comedy workshops and try and see if I “still had it”. I’m in my 40s now, and there’s so little that I do “still got”. So being on the road as a comedian was one reason.
The second reason was because last year I met a friend online. I know it sounds very “Jerry Springer” but we became very close, even though both of us are married. Now don’t get the wrong idea, no hanky-panky was ever involved but we did meet(with our spouses) and her husband offered to take me on in his construction company.(I have had some construction experience, more on that later)
So I’m currently living in two cities. My home in Mobile, Alabama and the state of Maryland. So I’m doing a lot of traveling back and forth.
