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?



'OH! My,my,my!"





Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"


My Only Son


"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Time is a Thief!

Swamp Monster!

Gather around, I'm going to tell you a story about a place I once knew,
when I was much younger than all of you.
Long ago back in this darkened swamp, tall cypress trees laden with
Spanish moss grew.  From out of the early evening mist a strange
sound could be heard by more than a few.

Some say screams, others to afraid to say.
But I know what it was and I'm going to tell you on this very day!
Beneath those brackish waters Cottonmouths, gators lurked, and a
a single black raven loudly squawked as he fluttered from tree to tree.

It was the scariest place I'd ever been. You can believe me when I say,
I won't go back again!

Since I was a lad, I wanted to venture
into this old swamp and see what it had.
I'd always heard that a snake-eyed monster
tarried there.

Some said it was just an old black bear,
but I wanted to see for myself if there
was really a snake-eyed monster
living there.

On that muggy day, not far away. I saw it! A brown hairy creature staring
from behind a big old cypress tree.  You guessed it! Staring right at me!
Green glowing snake like eyes, shiny black horns on his bony head. It
jumped up and down and screamed. Scared? I thought for sure I was dead!

I screamed too, and took off running down that swampy path and I ran,
 and ran and never looked back, until I was sure I was long gone from
that Monster's tracks!

Now I don't know, but I've been told that some that go into that dark
swamp doesn't always come out! But after what I saw, that's a story
I don't doubt!

If you want to know where that swamps at! Send me a dollar and
I'll send you a map!
