Bako Heat, sometimes called magoo, is a cuddly curmudgeon who finds himself busier in retirement than his work years. He spent half his life (so far) in Indiana and the 2nd half (so far) in California. He enjoys the desert climate and surrounding mountains of Bakersfield, the vineyards of Napa, the beaches of Newport and everything about San Francisco. He enjoys writing (three novels and dozens of short stories) and playing music. The only thing greater than his children are their children. Somehow he won the heart of the most incredible woman on earth. Probably where the term “Luck of the Irish” came from.
