Telling stories is a wonderful way of using "word pictures" to enhance understanding. My mother "talked in a series of stories" and I guess that rubbed off. I have about 250 story ideas. Most are humorous or topical. A few are serious. All have a "lesson for life" we can learn.  They are about 1 to 2 pages in length. 

Please enjoy three which are included here. Be looking for a "Book of Stories" to be published later in 2015 (God Willing). We will offer the book for sale at a modest price.

We met Ruby around March of 2013. At first meeting, she was charming, personable, and persistent.

When Ruby put her “mind” to a task, she would not be denied, until she achieved what she had decided to do.
