Hal (Chandos Wolf)
Hal (Chandos Wolf)
Hi! I am Hal, also known as the Chandos Wolf.
I am presently 52 years young, and I am presently a widower, having lost my beloved wife Jennie to cancer on December 11, 1995. I have 5 step-children, ranging in ages from 33 to 27, and one natural daughter, Lesley, who is now the tender age of 18. I also have 3 Step-Grandchildren, and one Great-niece.
I was born and raised in Chippawa, Ontario, Canada,
now incorporated as part of Niagara Falls, Canada. I love visiting here with my Dad, who is now 85 years old, my Aunt Doris who is now 83 years old, and my younger brother Jack and his wife Linda, and their family as well.
Like the Chandos Wolf, I travel alone. But like the
Wolf I have a pack of enduring friendships I have
been blessed with over the years. That is not to
mention all of the wonderful friends I have met here
on ICQ, and the many friends I meet who visit my home page and site on the net. Friendships are very important
to me and I always say, "one can never have enough
friends in one's lifetime", and once a friendship is
established, I can be quoted as always stating, "I will
always be there for you". And I mean every word of it.
I attained my love for wildlife from my Mom and Dad, who
were both true nature and wildlife lovers. I remember as
a kid, many a Sunday afternoon spent on drives into the
country. We would watch hawks soar through the sky, spot
and name various bird species, and watch the odd deer
cross the road in front of us. But it always was the wolf
that captured my imagination. From as far back as I can
remember I always wanted to know more about this
I find the wolf to be a cunning and elusive creature.
I also believe the wolf is a totally misunderstood animal.
As is normally the case with various wildlife species, man
has a need to destroy and wipeout that which he does not
understand. He sees the wolf as a nuisance and a threat to
his environment. Therefore, the wolf numbers have depleted.
Due to man's persistence to place bounty's on them, he has
killed and nearly erased this wonderful intelligent animal
from our beautiful earth. Hopefully, the wolf will
continue to strive and exist outside of human interference
and continue to grow in numbers.
As I have been continuously asked many times over, for the
meaning of my name, Chandos Wolf. It is two fold. Chandos
is the name of the lake my cottage is located on, and is a
North American Native word, meaning "Loon Lake", so I have
been told. Wolf came because of my love and respect for
this marvelous creature. Hence, the Chandos Wolf.
It is through my Mom and Dad, especially my Mom, that I
attained my love of life. My Mom saddly passed away in 1993,
and my Dad has reached the age of 85, and he is still well and happy. My love of life is always evident in my up-beat and happy self. I have been told over the years by many people, that I don't take life seriously enough. Maybe I don't, but I think it is my sense of humour, my short down time periods, and my ever present values of life, that give people this outlook of me. I always accept life as it comes, and always wear a smile, which I try and pass on to others. This has always been evident to the people who do get to know me. Truly me!! So, enough about me, come chat and find out for yourself, the real Hal........*S*
And I have once again found true love in my life. I have met a very special and beautiful lady who is not only my best friend, but the true love of my life. I honestly didn't think that I would ever feel true love or total happiness like this again in my heart, mind or in my life, but Linda has touched my heart and mind with her eternal friendship and true love she gives unconditionally to me. Linda and myself met at a family BBQ and started dating shortly there after which has developed into true love. As I always say, you just never know what is around that next corner in life.
Isn't life great???
So, my friend, as you tour my home page and my web site, it
is my wish you find it a friendly and relaxing place to be.
I hope you come away with a little more knowledge about me,
the Chandos Wolf, and see the the "Wolf" as a needed and
respected member of the animal kingdom. Oh yes....please
don't forget to sign my guestbook. I Look forward to knowing what new friend has visited with here today.
I hope you appreciate the hard and tedious work, and long
hours given by a very special and dear friend, Stormy. She
created and started and made possible my home page and my web site,
"The Wolf's Den", and turned it into a reality I will
treasure forever. Back in Sept. 1998, I had no idea what a Home page was, little own what html coding was. But, as I learned html coding, I was then able to pick up where she left off and I have created the site you now see today, and are visiting with me here today.
It is my further wish that you, take the time to enjoy and
digest the poetic and graphic talents of my special friend.
That you exit my home page a little more knowledgable, and
poetically enlightened with not only the Chandos Wolf, but
the exquisite work of and by Stormy.
And to you, Stormy, my eternal friend, a continuous thank
you for all your hard work and long hours. You have given
me a beautiful, and outstanding home page and web site.
The Wolf's Den is second to none, and always makes me very
proud, as I am just knowing you and calling you my friend.
"Take care, be happy and keep smiling".....my parting wish for all
who visit here.
P.S. My ICQ number is 32723584. You will always have an
open invitation to drop in and say hello, and chat with the
ChandosWolf. Clean chat, never ending humour, and a true
friend is all you will ever find there. So, grab a coffee and let's chat!!!!
