The Black Wall (Short Story) - 10/17/2011 8:06:03 PM|
I like this one a lot, for as short as it is you got an eerie feel for this kind of story -- mystery and suspense is closely related to horror in many ways and I think you can expand this one into a full blown Gothic horror story if you wanted to.
The Ticket (Short Story) - 10/5/2011 2:16:25 AM
HA! That's what happens when you put something off until the next day! Great story! :)

The Ticket (Short Story) - 9/21/2011 6:13:13 PM
ok, even tho my husband also is the slick "used car man type"... at least he has enough sense to check for lottery tickets in the glove box-LOL.

One Shoe Town (Short Story) - 7/27/2011 2:04:42 PM
I wouldn't use shoes in place of shingles. An act so odd, even the chief of police was stuck. Too wild!

This is a good story, Lowell, especially the surprise ending. Not everyone can pull that off, but you did. Well done.

Why Do We Vote? (Poetry) - 10/8/2011 12:22:30 PM
Sad thing is that the founders were only addressing the 0.1 elite and I still find it sad that down south there is an unacceptable amount of prejudice such a divide would have one in gaol on this side of the pond.
Keep moving onwards and upwards!
Why Do We Vote? (Poetry) - 10/7/2011 12:26:21 PM

Well done Lowell. Thanks Dick

Death (Poetry) - 9/30/2011 7:31:10 AM
Lowell, All very true, but we've both got a lot of living to take care of for now. Don't know about you, but that's where I'm concentrating my energies these days.
This was a nice reminder. Thanks, Dick
Death (Poetry) - 9/29/2011 6:43:44 PM
True, true Lowell. Don't fear The Reaper tune just popped in my head.
Death (Poetry) - 9/29/2011 4:27:30 PM
I'm not afraid of death. I know where I'll go in the hereafter. I do hope that I'll live long enough to get my love one's in the fold. A chilling view of death, good work, Lowell.
Vietnam (Poetry) - 9/28/2011 9:58:57 AM

Vietnam (Poetry) - 9/28/2011 4:40:23 AM
Powerful verses on war. They are gone but not forgotten in our hearts. Our soldiers should always be on our minds and hearts. God bless.

Storm's a Comin' (Poetry) - 9/21/2011 8:15:50 PM
Well expressed. I used to live on the beach a long time ago and storms were feared because of how quickly life is always changing...

Apollo 11 (Poetry) - 9/20/2011 7:57:21 PM
Of all the things this nation has wasted cubic money on, the space program was not among them. The return is beyond estimate. Sadly we lack a vision to continue and I'm afraid it's not just about money. Patrick
Apollo 11 (Poetry) - 9/20/2011 6:58:43 AM
That was the beginning and now it seems to be coming to an end, but in his review of my recent poem "NASA Shutting Down" Chip Bergeron suggests that there is still hope. We'll all be watching, I guess.
Nice one Lowell. Thanks Dick

Ten Years Ago (Poetry) - 9/11/2011 5:50:50 AM
Never will forget...
Nine Eleven Eve (Poetry) - 9/10/2011 5:43:07 AM
That day lost my wife,
Went through a great deal of strife,
Since then I try to forget, but everyone else wants to remember,
Oh well, guess I gotta live with it, such is life...
Nine Eleven Eve (Poetry) - 9/10/2011 5:31:45 AM
Short and to the point. I don't think our nation is any safer IMHO. I think that even though as a strong country we came together and supported everyone who was effected by this horrendous event, none that were alive when it happened will EVER forget or even come close to closure simply because it was such a shock to everyone. The grieving process will continue whether we are ever attacked again or not. I personally lived in Florida on 9/11 and had the morning news on while I made coffee and was in complete and utter shock when I watched the event occur on Fox news. Being the wife of a 1983 Beirut bombing veteran, I was always aware of the horrible attacks on people in other countries, but when it happens here on our own turf where we feel safe, it throws you off and makes you feel so vulnerable.

THIRTEEN!!!! That first real "Milestone" birthday. Wow, a teenager at long last. Bet she can't wait for 16 and a drivers license, 18 and graduation, 21 and the age of majority. THEN???? Well then, they're all downhill. After 21, nobody looks forward to another birthday. NO ONE!!! Well, maybe I looked forward to #65 so I would qualify for Medi-care, but other than that……
Nice memories Lowell, Keep em coming, Dick
Fat Man (Poetry) - 8/9/2011 5:37:18 AM
Indeed they did. And where are we now? Scenes around the globe of
blood, bombs, bullets & endlessly mindless political propoganda to
justify the perpetual funding (buy blood & treasure) of a run-amuck
global military-industrial elite...
The time is long PAST DUE to shift gears from global war economies to global PEACE economies: cap global population growth, recycle ALL resources as Mother Nature does, and push to develop viable alternative energy technologies!
The "Fat Boys" sitting in power need to go so the world can begin traveling a sustainable course henceforth. I know that my MANY ancestors, with their collective record of long military service (Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, & currently Afghanistan) stand with me on this point.
End of rant. Thank you.
Peace & Blessings,

Little Boy (Poetry) - 8/6/2011 8:27:34 AM
Truely a sad time in the history of mankind, but quite possibly an event that would save many more lives than it would cost, in that it became a turning point in a terrible life costly war.
Our Backyard Tree (Poetry) - 8/6/2011 6:37:11 AM
It takes all kinds.... Like you, I write about everyday things and most of the time I try to make it rhyme. I don’t consider my stuff to be on a par with the “real poets” as it’s generally not all that deep thinking, oblique type stuff, but I enjoy doing it and it serves as a great release.
I’ll be back to sample more of your work. Thanks Dick
Leather and Lace (Poetry) - 8/6/2011 6:22:28 AM

I Remember When... (Poetry) - 7/17/2011 4:54:35 AM
Ice cream cones were 5 cents or 10 cents, and they were BIG!
I do wish you would stop surprising me with those bio pictures, though, and put on one of Lowell J. Bergeron for a change. I enjoyed this reminder of the old days, which were SO different.
I Remember When... (Poetry) - 7/10/2011 4:46:00 PM
I'm new to your site, but was not disappointed! Your poem brought me back to a time when the family unit was still the good ole' American family, kids could roam free and paid a dime at the movies... and no one locked their doors. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, what a memorable trip it was!

...and then there was James Cash Penney, who strangely enough, found his way to your bio page before expiring (or after)
This is a clever poem, and mentions a lot of admirable names, along with some not so admirable. John Wayne still makes many appearances on our tv. Nice collection of famous individuals to think about.
Gone (Poetry) - 6/26/2011 9:58:50 AM
I called and he came. We had a fundraiser for beautification of the campus. I suggested Alex Haley for a speaker. Another committee member suggested Miss America runner up, Suzette Charles.
I called Playboy first, and then Alex's agent. We had to postpone the event to Mother's Day because Alex was not the merchant ship writing a memoir about his childhood in Henning, Tennessee.
He came in she came. What a consummate gentleman Alex was, allowing me to take his jacket and speaking to the audience in a way that utterly thrilled them about how first-time college graduate parents feel. She came and rejected my offer to take her fur coat. Balked at the idea of singing her songs at separate times, and demanded cash from me at the end of the evening after giving me a signed photo of her and Alex taken earlier that night as we sat together on the podium. Still, the rendition of “Raindrops Keep Falling” ran chills down my spine.
Alex Haley was a fine example of what it is to be a famous human. Suzette Charles was Miss America for a couple of months after Vanessa Williams resigned and later became Mike Tyson's girlfriend for a bit after disappearing from the limelight.
Some of the others you mention were just as great and public as Alex. John Wayne comes to mind.
