This paper is a faithful description of the author’s career as a scientist, which often intersected that of Yves Couder. The emphasis of this paper is a true description of how the science that the author has been associated with really came about. Included are brief descriptions of the science associated with the research paths described. It is hoped that this rather accurate account may be amusing for the senior scientists among us and educational (and possibly useful) for younger scientists.
