And so it begins.....

It’s been almost 11years since I moved to Houston from Los Angeles and there is only one thing I can say about the past 11 years. It has been one hell of a roller coaster ride. After spinning my wheels for 5 and a half years in LA I decided to pack up and move to the bayou city. By August of that year I landed the best job I have ever had in my life. I had the title, responsibility and the rewards I had always hoped for. It was a great two years. Then the owners either got greedy or blinded by success and the dream ended. A few months later I basically fell into another growing company. One that spanned the entire state of Texas. I had a bigger title, more responsibility and even more rewards. These were the salad days. The only time in my life that I never had any worries. And if something happened well hell, just get it fixed. I worked hard and played hard. Then after some time passed these owners became blind and greedy. After which the nightmare began. It wasn’t merely enough for them to take bad risks and fail no, they had to drag everyone around them down with them even the ones, like me, that moved on. This is the time I came upon the fork in the road. I went one way and the other part of me went the other. I have realized in the fullness of time, that it is all part the boom and bust cycle of living in Houston, Texas.

As I remember the story of walkabout I will at some time meet myself however, I think I’ve bumped into myself from time to time and did not notice on a conscious level. People have asked me where my screen name comes from. The first time I joined AdultFriendFinder I picked a quasi-acronym like many other screen names. I remember how I saw, and still see, some of the stupidest, arrogant and disgusting screen names imaginable. So this time, I decided to come up with something different. As I was joining AdultFriendFinder for the second time, I pondered feverishly over the possible handles that I could use. Then my cat, that I had rescued from the bowels of the hangar where my office is located, decided he needed attention. Like a laser guided bomb he jumped and landed on my lap. After my voice deepened and I could stand up and walk it came to me; albeit the hard way. Piper!. I believe now it was one of those periodic encounters with myself when I was really me for a time again. Two years earlier I heard his kitten calls looked, found and decided to keep Piper. He is an impressive specimen that if I were a cat I would want to be just like him. Just not fixed. Now, I can not imagine my world without him and he is always with me in spirit, and at times in my lap, when I journey through the, sometimes treacherous, world of AdultFriendFinder. Maybe Piper is filling in for the part of me that’s still missing. Keeping me sane.

And so begins the adventures of Pipercat2000.

I applaud your search and quest for more of life. I am also at a similar stage where I know there is so much more and I want to experience it and make as many friends as I can as well. But only a few chosen ones will become my confidantes with whom I can truly share my mind and visions.

This is pretty self explanatory. A quick history. Piper is a cool little bugger and a pest at times. He must be a cat.
