- "The Bees": True story: a Reds game really was delayed

- "Burning the Last Outhouses": Merl and I burned

- "Childhood Fantasy": 1975 was the year I really
discovered baseball. I loved that 1975 Boston Red Sox team.
- "Discovery Camp Nature Hike" : the title says it

- "Perfect Day" : a day at the folk festival
- "Pieces in the River": true story, by the way.

- "The Poetry Man": A poem in memoriam for my
