A TinCan Man’s Story: A Poem by Jack Miller

To understand the following poem, you will have to know that a sailor never loses his love for the ships he has served on or the seas he has sailed. You will also have to imagine an old sailor, too old for the sea, sitting at a bar talking to the only person who will listen to his sea stories.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “13 Buttons”

The bell bottom thirteen button gaberdine uniform I owned for a short time as a young sailor is still, in my mind, the coolest thing I have ever worn, in or out of the navy. Just re-reading this memory makes me long for the feel and look of them.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Textures of Life” and “That Hoppy Sweater”

This story came to me as I thought about my Grandmother Wickliffe. The wit and wisdom she dispensed along with love to her other grandchildren and me was priceless.  She died over 40 years ago, but she was such an influence on my life that I can close my eyes and see her as clearly as if she were here yesterday.  The story "Texture of Life" should ring a bell with anyone who knew someone like my grandmother, who could never pass up the opportunity to check the quality of what they were wearing, by feeling the material.

Remembering Huell Howser, California TV Legend

For those outside the state of California, Huell Howser, who passed away late Sunday night, might be something of a mystery. There's a chance you saw him on 'Tracy Takes On ... Hollywood,' or heard his voice on an episode of 'The Simpsons.' Southern Californians, however, are surely familiar with his self-produced travelogues of the state, which aired on KCET in Los Angeles, in all their incarnations -- 'California's Gold,' 'Visiting ... with Huell Howser' and 'California's Water,' to name a few.

Mid Missouri Holiday Decorations: The Magic Tree

Kids, this past weekend I was in Columbia, Mo.  I know a lot of you are familiar with the general vicinity and have probably been there several times over your tenure.  I have been there I don't know how many times, but for some reason I had never heard of a country wide phenomena called The Magic Tree. Apparently since I'm a big humbug who will refuse to put up a tree in my own home, I thought it would be nice to at least spread a little decorative cheer that someone else put up.
