How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!



That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?

Untitled

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Untitled

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"

"If"

My Only Son

GONE!

"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Time is a Thief!

The Grim Reaper

The Grim Reaper knows no time table, has no pity,
gives no reprieves and takes no prisoners.

The Reaper comes only once in a lifetime,
yet takes every person on Earth sooner
or later.

The Reaper will find us all no matter where
we try to hide, no matter how loud we
cry or how far we run.

The Reaper knows no prejudice, he cares not
about our race, our gender, our looks,
our age, our religious beliefs, or our
bank account.
The Reaper is a thief, he robs us of family,
friends, neighbors, and pets.

The Reaper defies all efforts by man to become immortalized .
The Reaper is always out there, patiently waiting for our demise.
The Reaper cares not between rich or poor.
The Reaper will forever be there to take more.

The Grim Reaper is the infinite opposite of life.
He’s death!

Advice from the Reaper for a longer life:

Exercise, take your medication, and avoid the following:
over eating, excess alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sex, motorcycles,
bicycles, cars, trains, airplanes, boats, skies, skates, swimming,
running, walking, stairs, bullets, knives, poison, lightning, floods,tornadoes, hurricanes, thousands of types of diseases, bacteria,  bears, sharks, spiders, snake, aligators, tigers, lions and irate Mother-in-laws, ex-wives, ex-husbands and the Atomic Bomb!
 
You won’t have much fun in life,
but you might live longer…smile.
