About Me

I’m not wet behind the ears anymore. As they say, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. I have done a lot of things in my life. My Dad farmed me out to work summers on a ranch at the ripe old age of 13. So I learned to work at a young age, up at 3:30 AM to milk cows and bed about 9 PM.

Spent a great 4 years in the Navy, best 4 years of my life. Wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. Left my home town of Saratoga, Wy, pop. 950 and went to see the world. Was on a destroyer for 3 years and did a 34,000 mile Mediterranean cruise. Stan Hjerleid

After Navy, went to college and got a degree in Electrical Engineering and later a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. I wasn’t too much for working for big companies so I went into teaching at a community college and eventually started a part-time photography business. Ended up going full time into photography and owned 2 photography businesses, wedding and portrait. After 10 years of that, I burned out and sold the businesses and went into Information Technology working as a Systems Administrator for Hewlett Packard and Agilent Technologies.

I’m now self-employed and owner of Self Publishing Bookworks, LLC, Cat Lovers News, and Seniors News Magazine.  I co-own with my wife, Happy Cat Retreat.

My interests are Bicycle Riding, Motorcycles, photography, and I raise parrots.
