The life and times of an ordinary guy named Richard Shea. With hard work, even an ordinary guy can achieve extraordinary results. Sometimes it doesn’t take any work at all. You just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or perhaps the right place at the right time. Some call this the fickle finger of fate. Others call it your destiny.

Very few people ever make it to truly great status, to be forever remembered in the infinite nature of time. Others gain a large amount of fame in the present, but begin to exponentially lose that fame with each passing generation. Most, if not nearly all, who inhabit the earth belong to the large pool of ordinary people who are forgotten after the passing of a few generations of their larger family and friends. I am in this category. Yet these people experience memorable moments in life also. Most of these are just ordinary successes or failures in an ordinary life, whose significance is minimal to the larger public. To ordinary people, these are the extraordinary moments of their life. Here are mine, however few they number.
