Damaged Merchandise, Poems and Stories of An Alcoholic Addict (Book) - 4/25/2009 10:51:27 AM
Dave, I love your authenticity! God is good all the time...All the time God is good! Blessings...Frances

Damaged Merchandise, Poems and Stories of An Alcoholic Addict (Book) - 2/8/2009 10:14:53 AM
Dave, I just saw you tailor for this book on your web site. It's great. The whole thing is very professional and appealing. I'm anxious to get me a copy soon. I can identify with deep depressions, anxiety and other things that are a part of and contribute to the alcoholic addiction. Glenda

Damaged Merchandise, Poems and Stories of An Alcoholic Addict (Book) - 10/1/2006 7:39:26 PM
Sounds cool. I share some of your same feelings and thoughts. I have written a memoir about what I have been through as well. It is important that we are able to share our stories with others. :)

Damaged Merchandise, Poems and Stories of An Alcoholic Addict (Book) - 4/4/2005 3:56:57 AM
Well Dave your book does sound interesting and like it carries much lesson in your words. I never was an alcoholic but I did drink to the tune of foolishness. Like you stated above in your excerpt,"I quit to avoid jail," this is the type pain and suffering too avoid. There's no benefit in suffering this way. G

Sometimes you have to loose eveything to gain life. Self improvement can be very difficult. Sounds like a great book to read.

Wow....this is powerful....knowing what verbal abuse can do to a mother and kids...being there still there....trying to seek help for hubby...but alcohol is a very powerful lover to my husband...and his family the doormats to his castle!! Thanks for sharing this glimps of your life!! Love Tinka

I wish you good luck in getting this published, Dave. An honest look and clearly written -- been there and done that, myself. Bob

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 3/31/2009 7:20:09 PM
Heart-felt and honest. Clear. Good communication. I think this is a good piece of writing. And if it is therapeutic, so be it! So much of writing is just that. Congratulations. I don't have the strength to seek a divorce myself.

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 1/12/2009 6:09:48 PM
Thanks Dave for sharing your story. Isn't it amazing that after everything is said and done, you can look back and see that what she meant to hurt, ended up a growth process of your psychological make up. I have had similar situations. God showed me that things aren't always what they seem to be. God bless you and your new wife! KJ Jacobs

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 1/10/2009 5:22:17 PM
WOW! The very same thing happened to me. One of the hardest things to reckon with while going through is that SOMEONE ELSE is going through the same exact thing and that we are not alone. Just as I have, I'm glad you chose to accept and move on. God bless you!

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 10/25/2007 4:00:14 AM
Interesting words, Julie..I was one that thought I was totally blameless in my divorce...my marriage ended rather awful and all were apalled at my then husband's behavior. I now realize that I had a part in it as well...my part was that I allowed myself to be played, I put my husband first the majority of the time...his schedule, his wants, his desires, his career always ALWAYS came first and I thought this was fine...then one day he just up and left to be with another woman. I now realize that my passiveness allowed this to happen, but I must admit that in retrospect I am very, very glad that it did end. Today marks the third year anniversary of the end of a union that I was always second, rarely an equal and I am eternally grateful that he left. I now realize that his leaving was the best thing that he could have ever done for me. My only regret is that it ended so bitterly and i wish that one day he would have enough courage to admit that HOW he went about things was not the kindest and that it could have been handled with a WHOLE lot more maturity.

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 10/24/2007 6:35:56 AM
While I could relate to most of this, I believe it takes two to tango. Not one person in the divorce is innocent. Until you ("you" being a general term) actually LEARN from your mistakes, ther eis no growth, and you just end up recycling the same past mistakes into a new relationship. Very thoughtful and courageous write, Dave. Hard to read with all the unnecessary commas, but worth plowing through to the end. Best, Julie

Thank you Dave for this, for I too feel I was addicted, to her to my ilfestyle, and the comfort these thing brought....It's been eight months now. still no divorce, it's in the works. but today I played 18 holes of golf, once a weekly pleasure. and I honestly felt like myself again. Dammit, I can't believe I let her control me for ten years, thinking only of her happiness and abandoning myself. Walt

As someone who did lose a family member to a drunk driver, I know the anger and horror on both sides. My young cousin has started drinking and with his second accident, he hit a tree (thank heavens not a person,) but he may still do jail time. So it is a very, very hard situation for sure...

By The Grace of God (Short Story) - 3/24/2006 10:41:41 AM
Dave, this is a most excellent write, deeply touching and moving and, most of all, filled with lots of truth. You pass on a very important message and it should be heard worldwide! Thanks for sharing and giving so much of yourself to others. Birgit and Roger

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 7/23/2005 11:10:31 AM
Thanks for your comments on my page. You said so many powerful things in this piece and I can tell that you understand what I am going through during my own break-up. Some things that really struck a cord with me were:"We both knew our future together, would be destructive and dysfunctional, if we remained united. " This is so true but strangely enough a lot of people ignore that important signal. "Whether, if it was for the best or if I could have done better, the truth was, at the time, I was scared, lonely, and full of pain....But the pain was real. The "emptiness" - huge." Oh my goodness, this statement is SO true. No matter how awful the relation was to live through, you wind up with a huge whole in your life once they are gone. You think you can deal with it but it is evident almost immediately. " We all deserve that. To be loved and wanted." Another statement that is so true but glossed over but people who are willing to settle for just having someone there no matter how badly they are treated. Humans are innately loving creatures. We are taught to hate through the absence of love in our lives. Nice write.

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 7/11/2005 6:09:51 AM
Even when walking away is the right thing to do, even when a relationship is deeply flawed, still we feel pain. For us who write, our work can be a part of our healing, as I imagine yours has been for you.

Recovery From Divorce (Short Story) - 5/25/2005 6:58:50 AM
Loss of spouse by divorce can be compared to loss by death; many of the same emotions are experienced in both cases. I lost my spouse by death, but I read we both had the same misgivings of our lives ahead. Faith, family, and friends help so much, but it is companionship that provide us with the needed stability - I have my special pet cats :o) You've written some important directions for others with this piece, Dave. Micke

The Split (Article) - 4/8/2011 6:10:23 AM

Phone Fun (Article) - 9/13/2010 12:39:32 AM
Dave, this is a riot! Nice work. It reminds me of when I lived in a rural town in Ridgefield, Washington. I lived in the basement apartment of the Ridgefield Cinema Building. It happened that my telephone number was almost the same as the theatre phone number upstairs, so I got oddles of "What's playing?" calls. At first, it irritated me, but, soon I became very good at inventing porn-movie titles ... heh heh heh

Newspaper bias towards our troops (Article) - 9/22/2009 5:51:24 AM
It is disgraceful that those fighting to defend us and our way of life are not honored in every possible way, even in print. Comments like those made by Edward Saint-Ivan are totally unnecessary as there are always a minute amount if "bad apples" that get the attention rather than the 99,9% if those that do good and wonderful work.

Helllllooooo! Wake up America (Article) - 8/22/2008 12:56:48 PM
Oh Edwin, Yup we need oil, as much as a heroin addict needs heroin. So to get him off his addiction lets have him run everywhere getting all the heroin he can find, so we can use it as a bridge to methadone. Yes, methadone may not be the final answer for his addiction, just as ethanol is not the final answer to our oil addiction. But getting more oil and more, and more, is also not the answer.

True to a point...but we need to drill drill drill while we build nuclear energy power plants, solar feilds (though not in Kennedy's back yard), and bio-deisel. Y'see, actually drilling IS the answer. It's economics 101 or read Economy for Dummies cliff notes. World markets, Emerging industrial nations (China, India), supply and demand, Martket futures, speculation, and little things like plastics, adhesives, pharmaceuticals, fabrics, etc, etc, etc, etc.....) Yeah, We NEED Oil and there is enough to bridge the gap until synthetics replace the market. Hemp has it uses but is best rolled in a fat joint. ;) Also, FYI...98.7% of the EVIL Exxon is owned by guys like you and me. Teachers, Fireman, Police, State and county employees, Factory workers, Corporate employees (Yeah, that's right, most employees in the U.S. of A.) all own Exxon. IRA's KEOUGHS, 401K's, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds, and every retirment/pension/annuity plan in this country owns Exxon. I've got it in my retirement fund...my retired mother has it in her pension plan. It's called Capitalism and serves our people well and sustains us more than any nationalized government program ever could. Ask this...what government contolled entity has ever earned a profit margin that even approaches the 8-9% marginal profit earned by Exxon? The answerf is...Not one...ever. And economics prove that the Govt. has only achieved -12 to -16% losses at best over one hundred years. This is America. Tax and Spend is NOT the answer nor the type of 'CHANGE' this country needs. I truly wish all would get a clue. Edwin

Spirituality and the 12 Steps (Article) - 4/4/2008 3:36:54 PM

Newspaper bias towards our troops (Article) - 8/6/2006 7:51:07 AM
The media is cherry picking coverage of the Iraq War. They disregard examples of heroism and amplfify attrocities by Americans. However, every American should be enraged that some soldiers engage in war crimes that could rival anything perpetrated by the Nazis or Japanese. Please review my article "The Marines Are Good at Killing, Nothing Else." I credit The United States Military for being the most professional in the world.

Oil Fantasies (Article) - 6/17/2006 9:14:28 AM
Dave Harm ... are you any relation to William Hurt? Personally, I have no attachment to oil what-so-ever. In fact, my first car was my dad's slightly banged up Datsun, and it never needed any oil at all. Doesn't solar power sound so much cleaner, with handy little garage plugs in convenient places and rechargable batteries?

Oil Fantasies (Article) - 6/15/2006 2:30:46 PM
I would have to agree with Joseph on this one, Dave. Most of our politicians today are in bed with Big Business - and that means the Oil and Power industries. And as long as oil is in short supply, they can milk us dry, and laugh all the way to the bank. And all this talk of all this oil in Alaska which will save us is a bunch of Horse Manure, too. Government studies show that the tiny amount of oil in Alaska won't even put a dent in gasoline prices, or on our severe dependence on foreign nations for our gluttonous oil demands. Alternative fuels have been around a long time now, but Big Business, and our government, seem extremely reluctant to even pursue them; there is just too much money to be made - in oil.

Oil Fantasies (Article) - 6/15/2006 12:56:30 PM
Dear Dave, What country has a President and VP both heavily involved in the oil industry (and do you think they want the price to rise or decline while ordinary people pay the price for the huge profits they are reaping)? What country recently rejected an offer from Venezuela for $30 per barrel oil? Why, on earth, would they do that? The answer to both questions is the same. GW & DC are laughing all the way to the bank and they don't give a flying fcuk about anyone else. They don't want anything to do with alternative sources of energy because that means the end of their pirate ways. They will milk us all as long as we allow them to do so. In all sincerity, Joseph

Oil Fantasies (Article) - 6/15/2006 12:21:39 PM
Well writtem article dave with lots of data and facts to reinforce what we all know but tend to dismiss or look the other way. Let's give our kids a chance by starting to change now. If the money that has been spent fighting wars over oil had been spent in research and development and supporting price reductions for items such as hybtrid cars just think how far along we would be.

Speaking with different tongues (Article) - 3/5/2006 5:48:06 PM
Great article, Dave. I'm glad to see you post this. I don't value any friend I have to 'keep quiet' to keep. Sometimes what we don't say is much more dangerous than anything we could say. As for Author's Den, I mostly consider it an extra web site. There is no constructive criticism of writing, and few comments if you get on the wrong side of the cliques - which is so junior high, it makes the site look rather - well, unprofessional?? With the absence of true critiques, you might think the forum was open to discussion. But that's not true either. Try and post a response to this comment.. the site won't let you. If the stats are anywhere near accurate, I receive approximately 1 comment for every 100 hits. Even allowing for the extra hits that accumulate when someone can't get off the page, that leaves a lot of readers who don't post comments. Or maybe someone comes in every day and clicks on everything I've written without reading? Maybe it's the person who is keeping tabs on who posts and doesn't review others, checking to see who reviewed me so that person can be kicked out of the clique? Anyway, if my opinion matters at all - I appreciate this excellent article, I commend you for writing the truth and asking the important questions, and I hope you will keep writing what motivates you - I'm sure people are reading, even if they don't leave comments.

I Was A Man (Poetry) - 5/30/2009 1:45:42 PM
Moving and so well done, Dave. Thankfully, today, you are the man you were meant to be. -gene.

Insanity (Poetry) - 5/28/2009 5:35:22 AM
I agree with Deborah Munson: When you live with a spouse who tried to conceal this problem it hurts when they have to go and leave you broken hearted. All you can do is pray for him (and cry sometimes). Great work Dave Harm!

I'm Tired (Poetry) - 5/4/2009 3:51:42 PM
I understand. Like a bad day, that keeps getting worse. You come home, vent. Like releasing the heavy cargo from your mind. Well done!

Sometimes (Poetry) - 4/24/2009 1:46:19 AM
This is a heartbreaking poem that was well written with deep feelings.I am sorry that you had to go through that mess which you or anybody else don't deserve.It just mind boggling that the priests and nuns that you went to for help didn't do nothing much less extend a hand of compassion.Yet they have some nerve representing the church.Thank you for sharing your ordeal.Take care of yourself Edwin

Dave you have been through hell, may heaven be yours today Bless you Carl

Sometimes (Poetry) - 4/21/2009 3:18:40 PM
Dave, This is heartbreaking. I can't imagine the awful pain you went through. Why God wasn't there then, we'll never know, but he's here now and that's what you must hold on to. Mary

I'm Tired (Poetry) - 3/20/2009 1:15:17 AM
Honest, open...so well expressed.

I'm Tired (Poetry) - 2/20/2009 6:27:54 PM
Now that you have cleared your mind...start over. You have the right to be tired, but it appears the world does not allow it. Whenever you feel distraught...think of those unable to leave their bed due to illness, or think of the Hawks soaring in the sky and feel their power! Make a list of everything and everyone dear to you! Then take Vivarin and drink coffee...your but will start moving and your mind will clear away the thoughts you have written! I think Jesus was tired of carrying that big wooden cross to die on for our sins...please gain strength and love life each day.

I'm Tired (Poetry) - 2/18/2009 6:09:46 PM
I think I understand you, everyone gets tired too,some friends do slap you on the back or go behind your back, do not surrender, get that fighting will back,men can cry do it if you need to,. You can feel you just manybe think right now you can't, You can be a strong person, get that tired feeling out of your system. and be on the way to finding some happiness. Keep your spirits up, it is important you do this too.

Who Are You? (Poetry) - 1/13/2009 11:46:21 AM
Dave, you have written a powerful poem. I have read enough to know that you have lived an amazing life. The life of a survivor. From one survivor to another, let me say, that the rewards of abandoning the victim role and digging out of the pit are well worth the effort. But you know this by now. Keep on moving, sound your trumpet, and make your mark, my friend. The world needs more like you to make a difference. Another Voice, Linda

I'm Tired (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 10:16:20 AM

You've gotta stop worrying, Dave. I think I know the answers for you (let me Google for it) - it's call The Serenity Prayer: "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference." It's a start, my friend... Blessings and Rest ~~ Micke

Yep, life sure isn't easy, but you might as well sit back and enjoy the ride because none of us is getting outta here alive!! I have days when I feel the harshness of life but for the most part, I try to take it all in my stride...it was not so easy when I was younger, but as I get older, my "give a sh** factor" seems to become less and less and life a whole lot brighter. Excellent penning. Take care, Sherry

I'm Still Tired (Poetry) - 5/25/2008 3:36:11 PM
Well I certainly can relate to this, since I was forced to retire because of heart problems and diabetes I have learned first hand what tiredness is and what it is to be made fun of because I feel tired, down, discouraged and yea fed up. I can say though that here on the den there is always a kind word when I need one. Fee

I'm Still Tired (Poetry) - 5/25/2008 11:49:03 AM
All of us get so tired and need renewing. I know personally cause I have to take sleeping pills prescribed by dr. to get a good nights sleep, otherwise my mind doesn't let me rest at night. Tiredness can be conquered somehow, but it is hard at best.

Is it the familial cycle, or not admitting to broken dreams? Either one, lives can sadly spin out of control. An eye-opener poem, Dave. Blessings ~~ Micke

The Power of Secrets... Never Shared (Poetry) - 3/10/2008 3:22:54 PM
Dreams, hopes, inner longings can sometimes grow to haunt us if we do not allow them out to breathe. Dwelling from deep inside, a weight is lifted when the secret is set free. Very powerfully written.... Be always safe, Karen

The Power of Secrets... Never Shared (Poetry) - 3/9/2008 1:10:39 PM
Hello Dave, My goodness my curiosity is exposed to wonder :) I think our secrets, desires, passions can be expressed & shared with another. This can magnify a bond. I am a rather bold uninhibited type person though...maybe I don't understand secrets very well....but I do know this, I really like the suspense of the "thing" among the days!! now my imagination is powerless wanting to know.... Great Write Indeed!! Embrasse' Vickie

I have a situation that sounds similar to yours that you are writing about. Two of my girls have both been in "that" room and both "HATE" that room and will not sleep in "there." My dog has also "acted" on it and went haywire at the light. I would love to talk to you about this. Feel free to email me. Thanks and God Bless, Tanya

Creating Dreams, From The Nightmares Of Hell (Poetry) - 12/31/2007 7:20:29 AM
Happy New Year, Dave!! I think of the years spent in the haze of drugs and/or booze, or even in anger and trying to be hurtful, as the years that we placed our life on hold and checked out. Once we return to our senses, pray that each of us shall, we begin our forward motion again and take each step with a wisdom of where we faultered, a vision of where we need to go and a knowledge that we were never expected to do it alone. Excellent offering!! Take care, Sherry

This is so very close to my own heart, sir. It is easy to let chemicals "save" us. I drink a bit more than I should, a family trait...a barricade against clinical depression? Probably not...your words here are so well constructed...I hope you find your peace and solace...there are greater things than ourselves, and you have so aptly stated that here. Be well, good sir, be safe, Jim

Creating Dreams, From The Nightmares Of Hell (Poetry) - 12/30/2007 3:21:09 PM

Expressed with honesty and just the right words. No masks. Society expects us to be at our best, always. Although these are difficult moments, we have a right to fragility, fatigue, even depression. This is often seen as an illness, but it does have a function; it's more like a symptom that is telling us something. Your layout reflects the state you are in, very suitable for the content. And I agree with Jackie's advice too... Axilea

Dang! That just about says it all, Dave. Ha! Me and my Kentucky Buddy were talking about the mistake we both made when we were born - we had obviously bought a ticket to the wrong world! Maybe, next time around, we will just hang out in the afterlife train station and watch all those other idiots boarding their trains. Ted

Voices of an Echo (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 11:01:25 AM
hey =) i mostly like the idea you have going on here. the repetition of your title/motif is well placed but you know what i think would step this piece up a lil...? modifying your presentation of the piece... i think the way you have broken it into two line tidbits makes the ideas too small... you know when you eat mini M&Ms individually and you cannot taste the chocolate at all...? kinda like that... i think it you take each section of 'voices of an echo' and make it one stanza an echo in a lonely world can be a best friend or maybe a worst enemy all depends on the message and throw in a little bit of punctuation to help the lines work seamlessly together and i think this piece would be such a jewel i absolutely adore the ending... youre right... they never stop so if you wanna hear them you gotta stop and hush yourself from the busyness and the stress, to make a conscious effort to hear these voices but... not everything you hear should be believed. and i think thats one of the hard things... filtering out what you should learn from and what you should learn to leave behind... well thought out =)

Our Fat Cat (Poetry) - 6/29/2007 8:27:22 AM

I see you in kitty heaven sleeping on your back... feet in the air enjoying a tummy rub... no worries... no cares So sorry for your loss, Dave, and I truly believe they deserve a spot in Heaven, too. I very sadly lost my beloved orange tabby a few months ago; he was nearly 20 years old; and one of the best friends I ever had. They really do become a part of us.

Hope (Poetry) - 12/16/2006 7:28:01 AM
You are so right, Dave, with this thoughtful meditation on life. Hope was born in a manger and celebrated with an empty tomb. Life is tough, but God is waiting for each one to yield to Him through faith in Jesus, His Son. Then hope becomes reality even while the storms churn around us. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I'm sure that there are view points like this for men as well. Many men who lead a nonsensical life looking for the perfect mate or soulmate; or some who are playboys, as they get old, they are loneliest men on earth. When they get old and everyone is away, or when they get old and even has a lot of so-called friend around them, but they are the loneliest creature on earth, and no one really loves them for who they are. Anyway, not really sure why I'm saying all these things; but this is true. Men feels more lonelier than women when they get old, used, and spent. Sandie May Angel a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)

I'm secure enough (Poetry) - 11/5/2006 3:39:33 PM
I, too, believe that I am secure enough, but you make an excellent point. When someone does something to us that they should not, the best way to handle it is to understand the insecurities that caused them to be so petty. At times, I have found it difficult not to laugh at people who say cruel things to me, especially those of little or no merit...but the grin and my shaking my head gives me away and usually takes all the wind from their sails...no words are needed from me at that point. Excellent write! Take care, Sherry

Shadows of the Past (Poetry) - 9/23/2006 8:32:21 AM
I think I know where this came from cause I have been there. God says ask forgiveness and you will recieve. It is then up to you to accept it by letting it go in HIS hands. It no longer belongs to you because HE claimed it when you asked. Wonderful poem my friend!

It is interesting that you should have picked the picture you did as I often think of that very image when I am searching for strength. Once while I was out hiking, I saw a huge rock with a very fine split in it and from that split a single blade of grass fluorished. As I eyed it, I wondered if perhaps it was the determination of that single blade of grass that had actually caused the split in that rock as it seemed to have grown up from the ground beneath the rock instead of being superficially rooted. This is an excellent poem, Dave, you have done an excellent job with the metaphor. Take care, Sherry

A stirring gentle hymn to life's innate ability to thrive in the face of adversity, and to the ability of human beings to salvage our own lives--if we make the conscious choice to do so--from the wreck we sometimes make of them. Thanks for the thought-provoking lines. Aberjhani

I Told You I Was Right (Poetry) - 7/19/2006 4:18:39 PM
And it's true, we're all right and we're all wrong; this is true in the illusion...(I think you may have just insipired me), thanks Dave.

People used to crave getting out of the country. I think that's when the country started going all wrong. Simple values like respect, self-dignity, honest treatment and patience in waiting for the best to come along seem to have gone up in the ozone. Long live the peace of country and nature combined. Lovely poem Bro. Dave, cynth'ya lewis reed

There are still places like this here in the Sonoran Desert. Lovely words...

Interesting piece Dave and one we all wish we could revert to or at least hope our children's children will enjoy someday. Fee

Have a great trip!

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 8:09:27 PM
Coming to NJ, huh? Did you get all your shots, as well as bringing along a bottle of something to take a shot of when sitting in traffic...better bring a radiation suit for all members of the family, as if not you could leave glowing in the dark, unless of course that sounds like a good idea to you...;) As well you better bring a passport, you never know when you might need it to cross into NJ...Say hello as you pass by, Rufuz will respond with a loud W00F...Enjoy your trip...Ed & Rufuz

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 5:49:01 PM
I wish you all the best Dave! I'm originally from Belleville N. J. and the seashore was my second home. Been quite a few years since I've been there . Hope you have a great trip and keep that optimism no matter what! Hey Ed Matlack and his dog Rufuz,lives in Sea Isle;-) My prayers go with you,Enjoy! eT

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 5:45:26 PM
I do wish you and yours a wonderful trip, Dave. Stay safe. Love and peace, Regis

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 3:34:14 PM
You have a great attitude and I'm sure your trip will be fruitful and full of surprises. Loved this prose. Throughout most of my early childhood, we spent the entire summer at the Jersey shore. Have a great trip and I'll try to read your blogs. My best, Gloria

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 3:13:51 PM
Sometimes going home isn't all it is cracked up to be. But I sincerely hope that is not the case with you. Actually, it sounds like a wind trip, thirteen states in fourteen days, even up there where the states a kinda small, that is some doing. Have fun. Write about it.

New Jersey Bound (Poetry) - 5/31/2006 2:35:34 PM
Have a wonderful trip, Dave, it all sounds pretty exciting. It is strange how the past seems to want to pin us into a certain slot of who we were at that given moment. We all grow and hopefully we learn from the mistakes we have made. Anyone who doesn't understand this is forgetting their own past. You will be doing a lot of traveling, but I have made that trip and it is doable...I did, however, inadvertantly blow through Delaware one night without even realizing it, so that is the only US state that I have not yet seen, though I guess I could say that I have been to Delaware. I hope the weather Gods will smile upon you and that your trip will be filled with many warm and touching memories. Take care, Sherry

The Old Babe (Poetry) - 5/29/2006 2:57:26 PM
I drove the same Dodge Caravan for eighteen years as our three kids grew up. It was a prototype (1984) 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine and did not have a rear window wiper nor a passenger side mirror. We went all over the place with it. It served us very well indeed. I know that of which you write, Dave. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Why Not? (Poetry) - 5/29/2006 2:54:07 PM

Nice one Dave!! Love Tinka

The Old Babe (Poetry) - 5/7/2006 3:36:18 AM
I named my cars when I had them; now I just walk everywhere (or get a ride if people ask me when they see me walking); can't afford a car, not even a dead one! LOL Gas only makes the problems worse. Oh, well--God gave me two good legs (or as good as they can be); why not use 'em? It's good exercise! :) (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

The Old Babe (Poetry) - 5/6/2006 7:40:32 PM
I am one of those people who has ascribed personality to my cars. This 'old babe' gave many years of trusted service and it's sad that she has been relegated to the lot but still she lives on in memory. Nice write Dave. Chanti
