Waiting

Waiting on paint to dry, that pretty much describes the mood, I am in right now. Holed up in a motel, unable to get home, not sure when all this will end. I miss my bed, my dogs, my pictures on the wall, my chair with the table next to it, and my wife not …

Love

I can tell you when I knew there was no one I could love as much as my wife. It was when we were separated, my daddy died, and our dog got killed by a car. In the mist of this stormy time, so much was not going good, then we went on a date …

Sweet Peas

My second grade teacher was Mrs. Denton, and she had been teaching for a very long time, in fact, my mama said she was a teacher in her school days. Now, rumor had it, that they had to take her ruler away, so she didn’t go around using it to slap unruly children knuckles in her class. Mama …

The Tree

My favorite place at Five was up in the big Oak tree in our backyard, it even had a treehouse of sorts. You know the kind you got a piece of thrown away wood here and there to patch it up a bit from neglect of former tenants. Daddy was in the Army, so we was renting, …
