Walkin'

“Thin nylon BB on LHS on C 3rd D,” the note in my handwriting said, “tshirt/m-drawer/sleeveless.”
I scribbled it a few weeks earlier while talking with Sabra on the telephone. She called from work because she forgot to take a change of clothes with her for our volleyball game at J&A Tap in North Liberty.

Food For Thought

In the “Oxford History of the American People,” Samuel Eliot Morison observed, in 1965, that, “If the American Revolution had produced nothing but the Declaration of Independence, it would have been worthwhile.”
One can barely imagine what our country would be like had that one document never been created. Not only did it define our need for freedom from the British Empire, it provided the impetus to withstand all other attempts to take over and force our submission to the rule of others. Without it, our nation would not have evolved into its present shape and substance.
