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?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Highwayman

A Celebration of Freedom





IT IS THE FOURTH OF July,
THE GLORIES DAY OF OUR NATION'S BIRTH,
AND WE CELEBRATE HEAVEN HERE AT THIS
BEAUTIFUL SPOT ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH.

AMERICA, AMERICA ...NOW AND FOR EVERY
THE LAND OF LIBERTY, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
AWAY OF LIFE BOUGHT WITH BLOOD AND
STRIFE, AND GOD WILLING IT WILL NEVER FALL.

TO THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE BORE THE COST
OF OUR FREEDOM, WE BOW OUR HEADS AND THANK THEM
IN A SILENT PRAYER.

FOR THEY HAVE BRAVELY FOUGHT AND DIED KEEPING
THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE FLYING HIGH FOR ME AND YOU
WITH ALL OF ITS LOVE AND CARE.

FREEDOM WILL ALWAYS BE OUR AS LONG AS OUR YOUNG
MEN AND WOMEN PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO AMERICA
AND FOR WHAT IT STANDS...ONE NATION INDIVISIBLE
UNDER GOD.
