--Ernest Haycox (Free Grass)

Echoes From the Campfire

--Louis L'Amour (Lonely on the Mountain)

"But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them."

How much more can this ol' earth take? Sure glad I wasn't born no later than I was. At least the coffee's hot this morning. Yes siree that boy livin' in Washington…
