Wayne Edwards has five new humorous  poems this month---all 
related to football: “The Man from Farr” was part of a fundraisier  for a fellow running for county judge; “The School Mascot” tells how the football team solved the problem of feeding and housing their mascot, an old goat;
“Seeing Is Believing” relates the tale of a fellow who took his friends advice and regretted it.;
“One Track Mind” tells of a father who proudly brags of his wifes’s  anticipated baby which he imagines will play pro  football be it male or female; and  “The Demons” presents the story of a misunderstanding between the new priest and a little boy.
See Wayne’s books in the Bookstore  and visit Wayne’s website at familypoet.com and say “Howdy” to him at  wayne@familypoet.com.
  
David Carlton’s contribution this month is “Building Fence” which retells a strange tale from the Florida swamp.

Michael O’Brien’s essay this month is “When You Get to the Fork
 in the Road…Take It” which presents Michael’s forks in his road and the folks who enfluenced his decisions.

Bill Neinast, columnist for the Brenham Banner Press, 
has five new essays for us this month:  
“Hate and the KKK” is Bill’s memories of and his investigations of the KKK in his local area; 
“Bad Language: Bad Choice” urges folks to clean up their fowl language; in “Waiting with Baited Breath” warns against Monday morning quaterbacking President Trump’s handling of the North Korea problem; “Hate Knows No Bounds” is Bill’s recollection of a family story which centers on the KKK; and “A Step too Far” questions the sanity of those who want to erase our history.
Tell Bill you appreciate him and his writing at 
neins1@aol.com. 

This month I have four new essays:
“Amos ‘n’ Andy” takes a look back at a sitcom which was one of my favorites as a youth and the cause of considerable controversy; and “Breaking the Code...Maybe” is my honest effort to explain to myself the chasm between liberals and conservatives; “I Know Nothing” explains why I know nothing...and neither do you; “Sultry” recalls some of the times I’ve felt uncomfortably warm.
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.  
Tell me how much you hate my writing at oldjwpinkerton@gmail.com and take a look at my bio page: John Pinkerton.
