Beware of Your Barber is about how difficult defining goals can be in the early search for a career. Summer of Eighty Eight is from a memoir on the author's arduous path seeking an education. Uncle Sam and the IRS Man is an allegorical fiction, and this could be anyone, anywhere, and humanity has come a long way with advances in medicine and health care since overcoming the dark ages, killer plagues, wars against reasoning, and those growing pains in history not easily detected when standing so close to the picture, today. Lean Thy Arms Awhile is from a memoir and one story in the collection from Jake's Book, stories about going hunting, fishing, camping, and working and spending quality time with his dad. Something About Hats is from a memoir and a literary work of humor, which is said to be a universal medicine, and a work of drama in story form.
