Fahrenheit 451 in General

What About Now in General

Just Sunday in General

I seem to have lost my writing voice. Every time I sit down to write nothing comes out. I had a busy week last week. Flew a couple of times. Getting used to the beechcraft, an the instructors ...

Can’tcha Say in General

I stink of cordite and sweat. My head and shoulders (sounds like a shampoo) are burned. Dumb move, Duke. The Boony hat was right there in the car and the beach bag was in the trunk. I have e...
