Carl Watson, author of Kid Clay, at Fox Run Estates!

Carl Watson, author of Kid Clay, will be doing a book signing at Fox Run Estates in Arlington, Texas (2315 Little Rd, Arlington, TX 76016 (817) 533-4927) January 16th at 3:00 pm. Public is welcome! Come get an autographed copy of Kid Clay, a historical, western, adventure novel for middle graders based on his grandfather’s memoirs in which he describes his experiences as a teen cowboy during the time of the National Cattle Trail from 1880 to 1887.

All young boys dream about being a cowboy, driving herds of cattle across the prairies, and chasing Indians. Henry Clay (Kid Clay), the fifteen-year-old son of a Kentucky judge, is no different, but he gets a lot more than he bargained for… typhoid, rustlers, stampedes, Buffalo Bill, and bank robbers.

Kid Clay has the determination and bravery he needs to survive, but as he makes his way along the trail, he discovers that the West is beginning to change. That’s when he makes a momentous decision that will affect the rest of his life.

Old Post Cards

Old Post Cards

The post cards are a piece of history, but the NARRATIVE at the end really tells the story of the current culture…..

While being a Helicopter Crew Chief Instructor, I’d go to Washington DC, with a few buddies almost every weekend.  We’d do the Smithsonian and all.

On the way back to  Ft. Eustis (125 miles), we’d often stop for something to eat.

One time, it was getting late.  We landed in  Falls Church, VA.   We saw an old general store that was still open.  We walked around on the old creaky floors looking for Frito’s or something?  I came across, an old wire frame post card holder.  It was full of WWII post cards …. Penny a piece!

I asked the guy, “How much do you want for the Post Cards?”  He said, “A penny.” He explained that they had been there ever since he was a kid.

I counted them … 300 plus.  I gave him $4.00 and I got the rack, too.

In San Diego , I sold a bunch for $1.00 each.   I still have a bunch to hand down.

I know some of you are too young to recall these posters and WWII, but they were a part of my life and others who are now “older than dirt”.  These are great.  Pass them along, especially to your older e-mail friends.  I wonder whatever happened to this kind of thinking.

I got a lump in my throat when I read this.  I “grew up” thinking: patriotism, it is the AMERICAN way!   I am glad to see that somebody saved them.  The statement at the end says it all!

These were our parents.  What in God’s name have we let happen?

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these!

Whatever happened?

Political correctness (or “re-education”) happened,
Lack of personal responsibility happened,
Lack of personal integrity and honesty happened,
Lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened,
Lack of being an American happened.

Did all of these things die along with common sense?

I for one am still proud to be an American!

If you are too …. Pass this along,  so others can show their pride.

James Garrison’s creative nonfiction story, “Looking for Gary Cheers,” has just been published online in The Manhattanville Review

James Garrison’s creative nonfiction story, “Looking for Gary Cheers,” has just been published online in The Manhattanville Review literary magazine. http://www.themvillereview.com/new-page-2 It relates in part to the Vietnam War era and his experiences pre- and post-Vietnam and thus to his novel, QL 4.

UFOs and the Pentagon’s $22-million-a-year secret government study.

UFOs and the Pentagon’s $22-million-a-year secret government study.

Yesterday, Fox News had the best coverage referring to a hidden government conspiracy akin to the secret Military Industrial Complex Eisenhower spoke about. Murder on Air Force One by John L. Flynn had it right long before the news coverage. In the novel, General Goodine reveals to Kate Dawson that a secret government agency, part of the Pentagon, has been studying UFOs since the 1947 crash at Roswell. We learned yesterday that the Pentagon has been spending lots of money as part of a secret project to study UFOs. Flynn’s book speculated about that long before it reached national news.

“My newest book, Murder on Air Force One revealed a Pentagon conspiracy, worth billions to the Military-Industrial-Complex, to hide its study of UFOs. Now we learn that Harry Reid was actually funneling as much as $22 million a year to the Pentagon to keep its secret, known only to an elite few, from the American public. I wrote my book as fiction a couple of years ago. and it was published this year. Another example of fiction becoming fact. How much longer are the American people going to put up with government lies about Area 51 and the Roswell crash of 1947? The “truth” is not out there but in my book, Murder on Air Force One.”

Murder on Air Force One by John L. Flynn is available on Amazon and all other major outlets. To read more about what transpired in D.C., see below links. Fact and fiction, a fine line…

The Defense Department secretly set up a program ten years ago to investigate unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, at the urging of then-Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, according to new reports.
