Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I sometime play racquetball at the Air Force Academy rec center, and we drive by two static displays next to the Academy’s airfield. On the very last day of 2011 I drove my own car into the grounds, and therefore … Continue reading

This post closes out the documentation of my Thanksgiving (2011) trip to San Leon, Texas. As before, we drove down there. Driving is my favorite way to travel. For one thing, I get to spend time with my wife. As … Continue reading
Shrimping boats heading home were one of the things I was looking forward to seeing on my return visit to Galveston Bay. I did see a couple, but they were semi-shrouded in the early morning fog. Nothing like my June … Continue reading
