Legacy of Short Stories and Essays
In putting together this book I have tried to focus on interests of the general public. Rubber Duck 5001 was spawned by an actual rubber duck race on the Chattahoochee River; an annual 4th of July event that only lasted a few years, and where I witnessed a small boy in a wheelchair rudely denied entrance with his little rubber duck. A Place I Called Home was remembered from the time I spent on the Davidson Ranch south of Las Animas, Colorado. Grapes of Wrath (Essay) was an essay I wrote in college after reading the novel by John Steinbeck. We Are at War was written because of the conflict in Iraq. I lived just outside Fort Benning, Georgia, at the time I wrote it, and also drove a taxi cab during that era of time, and listened to many tales brought home by our Military troops both from Iraq and also from Vietnam. Cab Eighty Nine was thought up as a result of my years in the taxi business. Old Yellow Doc was the best stallion I have owned. He died in 2010. The rest of the stories are purely fictional. And in dipping into my imagination I hope I have come up some enjoyable pieces of writing that you, the readers, will enjoy and recommend to your friends. Thank you for being my loyal and loving public. Other of my books you may enjoy are; Destiny’s Call — my debut western novel, Priceless Pages From Amazing People — a collection of mini short stories and poetry written by friends and associates as well as some of my own, and If I Could Be a Poet — a collection of my own inspirations.
