TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF MY LIFE

A GOOD DAY IS WHEN THE FAMILY IS ALL TOGETHER

THE STATE OF STATES!

DON'T MESS WITH VETERANS

BROTHERHOOD OF VETERANS



POETRY

I WAS THINKING OF GIVING A WEATHER REPORT

LOVE AND WATCH OUT FOR THE SALT SHAKER

RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE POETS

ABUSED CHILDREN CHARITY

SOOTY GREY-Dreamweaver

REALITY IS

DANCING WITH THE BOGGEYMAN

THE OLDER YOU GET

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE

I WAS NEVER PERFECT

TAKING SIDES

SOMEWHAT MATURITY

IT'S THE FOURTH

NO TEARS FALLING FROM THIS PROUD CHIEFS EYES

SENSE OF HUMOR

ELVIS AND THE SEATTLE WORLDS FAIR

DON'T LOVE YOU ANY MORE

AINT OLDTIMERS WONDERFUL?

FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS

GOD'S COUNTY

RETURNING THIS TO A POETRY SITE

SILENT ARE THE SOUNDS

COULD NOT LET THIS GO BY

THINGS BOTHERING ME

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

I open the mail to an e-mail
It was about old friends
My friend from high school sent it
To remind me I was his old friend
Unrelated at Graduation dinner
My son spoke to my Grandson
He had a message
"Ryan as you walked by you slapped
hands with many of your classmates.
It is important to know that years from
now you well never see most again
Cherish those that have real meaning
and be sure and let them know your feelings."
To which Ryan answered,
"Wyatt and his Mom and Dad stopped me
to congratulate me on my Graduation.
"We didn't' know Wyatt was graduating with you?'
"Oh, he is not they came to see me graduate special."
Wyatt and Ryan began playing hockey in grade school
On the same team that won State Championship
Today at sixteen Wyatt plays for the Everett Silvertips
He is a coveted draft pick
No jealousies Ryan had gone to his games to root him on
It is friendship as well as hockey they share
As we entered the arena it was noted the front tire
went totally flat a disaster.
Danny's friend from high school was there to watch the graduation
While we fretted he went out and fixed the tire
He is namesake to one of my Grandchildren and Godparent to all three.
One of Danny's friends from high school days to remember
