About DAVE


  • HI, I’m DAVE. *WAVES AT YOU*
  • I assume you know who YOU are.
  • I publish under ‘DW RHODES.’
  • I used to hang out HERE.
  • But now I’m HERE, at DAVE BLOG. So are YOU.
  • I write things.
  • I’ve been doing that for a long time but haven’t put a book out.
  • Maybe this year I will.

  • I’ve been the life partner to a nice lady named ‘Dorian Dorey’ for a long time. In the pic above, she is pictured with Audrey Hepburn. Audrey is on the left and made out of wax. Dorian, on the right, is made out of love.
  • Also, she’s a POET!

  • I’ve never been a go-go dancer, as shown above, but I think it would be fun. The GIF above is just a whimsical depiction of what that might be like, and I must say I rock that dress.
  • I’ve had a diverse career. I’ve been a…
  • Sailor in the US Navy.
  • Security Guard.
  • Security Manager.
  • Security Dispatcher.
  • Theatrical Manager.
  • Sound Designer.
  • Radio DJ/Producer/Board Engineer.
  • Stage Actor.
  • Professional Mime (I apologize to all my former victims during that phase).
  • EXTRA in Film and Television.
  • Hotel Security and MOD for a Hilton.
  • Taxi Driver.
  • If it seems like I’m indecisive and unwilling to hold onto any one position for very long, that’s only because I’m indecisive and unwilling to hold onto any position for very long.

  • In the photo above I am on the left, and my old pals Michelle and ‘Soda Pop’ are hanging out with me in Union Square.
  • Currently I’m a Tour Guide in San Francisco, and I have no idea how I’ve managed to hold that job longer than any other.

  • I am now a ‘Senior-In-Training.’ Pictured above is me almost 40 years ago, and then me about 5 years ago. I like cheeseburgers, and my hair has now migrated down and sprouts out of my chin.

  • HERE’s what you’ll find at this site…
  • DAVE The SCRIBE is where I put my essays, whimsical and otherwise. I like satire, so you’ll find a lot of that there. It’s all just life observation.
  • DAVE The STORYTELLER holds my fiction: short stories and serials.
  • DAVE The TOUR GUIDE is all about two things: my adventures as a tour guide on a sightseeing bus in a world class city, and things about that city, which happens to be San Francisco.
  • DAVE The POET is where I stash my poetry. My other half, DORIAN DOREY, is a much better poet than I am. Remember, you can find her stuff HERE. But I try, and she tries to be nice when giving me reviews.
  • DAVE’S GUESTROOM is where you can find guest posts. If you’d like to submit a piece and be a GUEST POSTER on DAVE BLOG, contact me.
  • PLEASE NOTE! This blog debuted on January 1st of 2020, and I’m not republishing anything I’ve written before. The intent is to start fresh with all new stuff, so if you’re jumping in during the first part of 2020, please subscribe and come back, it’ll grow as the world spins and time marches on.

  • Well, that’s about it.
