Bob Pankey is sharing two of his latest essays with us this month: “Primo” and
“A Eulogy for Our Mother.”  “Primo” is a tribute to a friend who recently passed away.  “A Eulogue for Our Mother” celebrates the life of his mother.
Check out Bob’s latest paintings at “New Art Stuff.”
Bob has published a collection of his stories, Short Stories from Texas and Beyond. 
The description of the book on Amazon is as follows:
“This volume of short stories was written while Dr. Bob Pankey lived in Texas and the Midwest, particularly Illinois and Missouri. It speaks to those interested in sports, relationships, family and life in general in the mind of the author. Pankey grew up in Carbondale, a small college town in Southern Illinois. After having some successful years in sports, he went to the University of Missouri on an NCAA scholarship and played as a quarterback and defensive safety before graduating in 1973. These stories mainly reflect the life that Pankey experienced as a kid and family man. Pankey became a professor and served over 44 years in teaching while in Texas. He retired from Higher Education in 2017 and is now a full-time artist being represented in three art galleries throughout the Southwest.”

Wayne Edwards has five new humorous  poems this month about the holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving: “I Don’t Make Fun of You” recounts why a fellow feels as though he fits in best during Halloween; “It Came Knocking” describes a monster at the door;
“Halloween Story” relates why a skeleton loves candy but can’t eat it;
“Thanksgiving Dinner” tells of what was served at Grandmother’s house; and  “Change of Menu” provides a history of Thanksgiving meals.
See Wayne’s books in the Bookstore  and visit Wayne’s website at familypoet.com and say “Howdy” to him at  wayne@familypoet.com.

Bill Neinast, columnist for the Brenham Banner Press, 
has five new essays for us this month:  
“The NFL, Racism, and the President” contends that the President’s criticism of the NFL and the kneeling protests hits the mark pefectly; 
“Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How” is Bill’s suggestion that reporters go back to the basics of journalism; “Politics and Monuments” is a warning that tearing down statues is a slippery slope; “Guns Don’t Kill People...” makes arguements against gun control; and Yesterday Not All Bad hearkens back to a more gentle time.
Tell Bill you appreciate him and his writing at 
neins1@aol.com.




This month I have four new essays:
“What It Is Is Baseball” takes another look as baseball after the World Series; “Preacher”---well, Hell, you’ll just have to read it; “It’s a Freakin’ Miracle” recounts an encounter with a young fellow who performed a miracle right before my eyes; “People” questions the wisdom of recognizing that people do exist.

My book, Old Guy Has Final Word, is still available  at Amazon.  I’ve added a Kindle version.  The book is a collection of essays suitable to be read by  both young and old.
