A BROKEN ARM AND THE CAN CAN?

When I was thirteen or fourteen, I went roller skating one Friday evening, which was one of my favorite past times as a kid. During the course of the evening, I fell because my friend knocked me over unintentionally. However, while I was on the ground and attempting to get up, someone accidentally...

FRIENDSHIP ABANDONED

I've had something on my mind most of the day and I just had to talk with someone about it and since you guys have always been so supportive, I thought I'd share it with you. A little over a year ago, the person I considered to be my best friend for the past twenty-five years informed me that she no... Sign in to see full entry.

HOLIDAY MEMORIES

With Thanksgiving coming up next week (believe it or not), I keep thinking about my favorite memories from this time of year. One of those memories is of hayrides when I was a young teenager. Our church would get people together and go out to the country where someone would have an old flat bed... Sign in to see full entry.

McDONALD'S AND THE BEATLES?

When I was thirteen, I travelled to Mississippi with my Dad's Dad, Grandaddy, and his wife, MaryLou. Unfortunately, both of them were smokers so I did my best to sleep as much as possible on the trip in the car since it was filled with cigarette smoke. Anyway, Grandaddy lived on a farm outside...

BACK TO THE KID STUFF...

I know I told you about the time I sold pretend tickets on the train but that was just the beginning of my "sales" career as a kid. When I was about nine, I took one of the large, smooth rocks out of a neighbor's rock garden and painted a picture on it. Then, I took it back to the neighbor and tried... Sign in to see full entry.

A PRESIDENTIAL MEETING

Approximately twenty-three or twenty-four years ago, my family was in New York City - I believe it was for Thanksgiving. Anyway, one evening we went to 21 Club for dinner after going to the theatre and as we were walking through the lobby, my we saw a friend of my Dad's, Congressman Joe Waggoner. Of...

ONE OF MY DREAM PLACES

Sorry it's taken so long to write again. Things have been a bit crazy. But I have to tell you about one of my favorite places. It's called Tamarron! It's a resort in Purgatory, Colorado just north of Durango where the Durango-Silverton train is that I told you about. Tamarron is a gorgeous lodge and... Sign in to see full entry.

A TRAIN RIDE THROUGH HISTORY - PART TWO

Well, I hope you enjoyed your imaginary train ride with me through my poem, The Durango Silverton Adventure, but now on to tell you more about my experience. What I remember most about the first trip was being showered in soot! Keep in mind, this is an old steam engine, or it was when I rode it.... Sign in to see full entry.

A TRAIN RIDE THROUGH HISTORY

Durango, Colorado is one of my favorite places in the whole world. At least places I've been so far. There are several reasons I'm so fond of it but one of the main reasons is the Durango-Silverton Narrow Guage Train. The first time I rode this train, I was about ten, I think. I've ridden it twice... Sign in to see full entry.

BUT, I WANNA ROLL

A few postings back I told you the story of our family's trip to the Grand Canyon and within that story, I told you about a previous trip to the Grand Canyon when my mother had to bury my brother's diaper in the Canyon. Well, there is another incident that happened during that earlier trip that I... Sign in to see full entry.
