The Adventures of Morty Angel

MortyAngel on Skye Scooter

Grumpa Joe’s Place

This is my personal web page. It is the place where I can brag about myself, my family, and my friends. It is also a memorial to my late wife Barbara, and a testament of love for my new wife Peggy. I will fill the pages with items of interest. Some will be informative, some will be educational, some will be news regarding my activities.
It will also serve as a history and geneology of my family.

Morty Angel is my guardian angel. I assign him to watch over my kids and grandkids. He is a character in a series of stories I have concocted for my grandchildren. Morty’s story is told on a separate website, This site was also the original GrumpaJoe’sPlace. Eventually, it will become Morty’s private address. One of my stories is on the site in its entirety. You can print it down and read it to your children. The story is titled “Lil T.”

I figure we can see things we don’t agree with and attack each other, or we can try to get a more well-rounded view of the issues and laugh a bit in the process. Nice blog.

  13. This country is far from beaten. What the brit hasn’t seen is the sleeping anger that american citizens build just before they put their boots on and go to kicking. Our government has foolishly tested those lines this time and it won’t be forgotten.

  14. Thanks for the information. I appreciate it. You have a very well-done blog.

  15. Dear Site Owner,

    Our website is devoted to credit cards and it’s at the top 10 in Google for the keywords ‘credit cards’.
    It’s a high traffic site with PR4 and it contains loads of useful financial information presented in news and articles
    that highlight the most much-talked-of issues such as credit cards, debt solutions, financial crisis, ways out of it, and many more.
    We believe this information can awake interest in your guests as well.
    We would like to purchase some links at your site.
    We thank in you in advance for your cooperation.
    Best regards,

    • Caren;
      As much as I’d like the money, I cannot sign on to your offer. I do not condone credit cards from any of the companies you represent. Even tho I have cards, and use them, I do not own any credit card debt. The next economic crisis to tear down our economy will be credit card debt. This crisis will make the housing crisis seem like chump change in comparison.
      Good luck with your endeavor.
