As I sit in my chair, living in the past,

No longer light, nimble and quick;

I ponder and moan and think quite a bit.

About a dream I once had

​That suddenly went to shit.Van&TrlrStbdSide1

 

 

Too weak to say “NO” to his best friend – the “Man”.

Wanting to be a successful Businessman.

Had no money, and neither did I

Nothing but credit cards and a score that was high.

But I loved him so, and that was the catch

The credit cards gone, and the score down the hatch.

He’s living his dream, and life is just fine

While I sit here and fume, cuz I just lost mine.

No touring the Country, no Flinging the Chute

To take pictures on high with a landscape so cute.ppc-1

 

 

 

The trailer and the Chute in a Hangar reside

Along with a ‘Coupe nestled by their side.

Will they ever someday travel and fly ?

Only Time and Money will decide.New_HomeSweetHangar

A LATE IN LIFE DISCOVERY

IN THE BEGINNING

IMG_0344-3

It was 1951.

The boy next door and I went to the local town beach.

He was a year older than me. I was five.

It was when I first became physically close to someone outside of my immediate family.

Our bodies touched, and we put our arms around each other.

I liked the boy next door simply because he liked me back.
