Ken Oag – Biography
My Bio is quite short. After proving that my skills at getting along with employers were pretty much nonexistent, Joyce and I started our own business, and that kept the wolf from the door for about twenty five years.

Shortly after we were married, Joyce started calling me Ole Albert. She tells the following story of a childhood neighbor. Her father went out of their house one morning, and noticed smoke above Ole Albert’s house. Chimney fires were much dreaded in those days, because they would quickly spread to the roof and destroy the house. Her Dad ran across the field, and burst into his house shouting, “Albert, hurry! Your chimney’s on fire.” Albert was sitting calmly at the kitchen table, wearing nothing but his long johns, eating a bowl of cereal. “Yep,”, he replied. “After breakfast, I got to build me a ladder and put the darn thing out.”
Now we have never had a chimney fire and I don’t wear long johns, so I don’t know why Joyce calls me Ole Albert, but I humour her and I suppose some day she will tell me.
Over the years I have amused myself writing a few Old Albert essays, and lately I have started working on a science fiction novel. I got thinking that I might as well give the people who have never been exposed to my essays, a novel to never be exposed to as well.
