Book Synopsis
My Old Straw Hat is a collage of, true life experiences, personal tributes, nostalgic memories, inspirational thoughts, flights of fancy, and humorous accounts. These are presented either set to verse or in a narrative format for the readers enjoyment.

There are as many opinions as there are those who write and those who are destined to read such offerings, but in my “not so humble opinion.” Poetry must have meter or a beat like the beat of a musical composition and it must rhyme. Prose for me is difficult to read and glean meaning from and I have always felt that it was probably just a bad attempt at forming a paragraph, but then I'm only a poorly educated country boy from the Kansas Flint Hills, so what do I know.

It has been my long held opinion that anyone who might expect others to either listen to or read what they might have to say should be open and bluntly honest about who they are and in what they believe. Politicians, public figures and celebrities of course excepted.

About The Author
It has been my long held opinion that anyone who might expect others to either listen to or read what they might have to say should be open and bluntly honest about who they are and in what they believe. Politicians, public figures and celebrities of course excepted, since most have no idea who they are of what they might still believe, but such is the price of pandering and play-acting.

I'm not the man I used to be
And some would say 'twas good
For in my younger feistier days
If I could, might be I would.

It was not some moral compass
Which set the course for me
But fear and trepidation
Which determined who I'd be
