Words Have Power, They Are Magic pt 20

Life for me came down to sitting on the park bench during the day, rain, shine, cold, hot, it did not matter. My bench was my place. I was their every day, all day.  It became my palace, my refuge.  There I could sit and look out on the world, well a little slice of that world.  A nice slice at that, the slice that was the corner piece, the one with all the...

William, as he introduced himself or Wet Willy as the rest of the park residents called him, was gone in the morning. I had not moved from the bench. Not sure if I slept but it seemed as if I did not nor did it matter. I had watched the bums come out starting their fires after the regular citizens left the park,  cooking their meals, keeping warm, sharing their...

Bearizona

One of my most favorite things I did on my trip to Arizona was to go visit a place called Bearizona. Oh my that was the best. I was excited, scared, nervous, and amazed when visiting Bearizona.

Still a happy place after...

Verde  Canyon Train Ride

I love trains and have become quite an aficionado. Well, actually, let me revise that. I love riding trains.  Definitely am not one of those who can look at a train and tell you the kind of train it is, where it was how the engine works and whether or not it is a great train or just an ordinary one.  We all know folks like that. Not me.  I have neither the desire...

Words Have Power, They Are Magic pt 16

I had only been in the hospital for 24 hours and I needed a drink. I mean I really needed a drink.  My hands were shaking, I felt like I was going to vomit, sweating, my heart was trying to jump of my chest and I felt just plain miserable. I needed a drink badly.   The heart rate got the nurse into the room. She took one look at me and turned to call the doctor....
