Go to the new site here: www.captainjustice.net

All of the content here was moved, and all new activity happens over there.

This blog is intended to be a mix of fun and serious stuff. Maybe it’ll be a bit provocative and we can ‘talk’ about things. I’ve had a complex CMS style of site (discussed here) that got in the way of writing, so hopefully this format will be simpler and more productive.  See summaries of all of my posts here.

I am Guilford “Gil” Jones of Marble Falls, Texas.  By education and vocation(s) I am a CPA/Attorney/Judge who also happens to have a lot of hobbies and interests. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin (BBA ’66 and JD ’73). I grew up in West Texas with wonderful parents and a sister who’s not so bad either. Domestically I’m married with children and grandchildren but all of that will stay private.

Probably more than you ever wanted to know is in a short bio.

Sometimes we’ll talk here about things that just interest me and perhaps also you, and sometimes about things that excite me — in either a positive or negative way. I hope some folks will come along and join in and all I ask is that the discussion stay respectful, even if we disagree.

I’m a bit of a hobby nut at heart, including BMW motorcycles, computers, ham radio, kayak fishing, photography and hiking, and we’ll talk about some of those things from time to time. In 2010 I started a running program to get fit and lose weight, and now it’s become an addiction. UPDATE: the addiction is now cycling. Mostly road bike, some mountain bike.

I also enjoy digital photography, some of which can be found at www.flickr.com/captainjustice.

    Gil,

    Are you the same guy I knew in Big Spring in the 50″s ? Your dad was the DA.

    Google found you because I have it picking up tidbits on the net ever since she was decommissioned.

    I too was out there on the “Hawk” from ’67 to ’69. I got to leave her almost every day as I was a Naval Aviator flying “The Hawkeye” with VAW-114. I’ll have to get out the cruise books out and see what you looked like as a “kid”.

    (Added trivia) Did you know that a local soccer team wants to sod the deck this summer and play matches aboard the “Hawk” in Bremerton?

    I still want you to give me a ride on your kayak.

  6. Hey, Gil, someone visited your site and dropped over at TT. Thanks for the linky love, Sugah!
