"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found



Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art

Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Those Were the Days

Those were the days when life
was free in its youngest ways.
And time linger in a slow
moving child-like haze.

Today was forever and tomorrow
was only a day dream.
Baseball, licorice sticks and
chocolate ice cream.

Baby dolls, teddy bears and tea parties,
Little girls dance and whirl up the spiral
stairs.

Puppy dogs, kitty cats,
calico and funny hats.
Hop-scotch, jumping
rope with laughter
coming from childhood
hopes.
 
Summer days, swimming holes,
bicycles and fishing poles.
No time for grown up goals.

Days of  adventure, discovery
and childhood surprises.

Life was good, life was free.
What a great time just to be.

Those were the days!
What a treat at a place called;
Walnut street.
