Stories over a cup of coffee

1x
Episode 1: "Fowl Play"
I have enjoyed motorcycling for many years, but never as much as on one particular day when I got to share a ride with a most unusual acquaintance. The story you are about to hear is true, every word of it. Over the years I’ve experienced many unusual situations, as we all have but I wanted to share this one with you.   Credits: Speedy Arnold as Uncle Bill Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 2: "The Art of Yo"
It’s funny the things we continue to latch onto from our childhood, sometimes out of the inability to part with it, sometimes out of necessity. I found one such item came in handy even as an adult. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 3: "Coffee"
My love of Theater has required my moving around to find just the right show to audition for, and if cast, it can be an extremely rewarding experience. While living in Georgia I had access to many local community theaters, Winder-Barrow Community Theater was one in particular. Nothing better than a cup of coffee and an evening in the theater, IF you can get one. Credits: Hollie Benette as Cashier Eileen Antonescu as Manager Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 4: "Christmas Lament"
The Christmas season can be both magical and challenging. This is the case when I look at the best and the “not-so-best” the season has to offer for me. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 5: "Father of the Groom"
We experience many milestones in our lives, marriage for example. This story is about my son’s wedding. I think we all appreciate that this special day is really centered around the Bride. But I don’t think that the Groom’s side of the story ever gets told, much less his father’s. Maybe this will help explain what I mean. Credits: Cover Photo Marcus Lewis (Unsplash)

Episode 6: "Uniform Casualty"
Many opportunities can be derived from being a musician, especially if the instrument you play is unusual. I was truly blessed by having the chance to learn the bagpipes. Unusual, yes, but you must be on your guard at all times. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 7: "The Reunion"
I have written 3 non-fiction books. ALL of the stories that you will hear are from those books and they are ALL true. This one, in particular, is from a book entitled “Garry Owen”. It’s an autobiographical account of my time in the Army from the day I was drafted until a reunion 45 years later. A VERY unlikely story, but true never-the-less. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 8: "The Art of Flying"
I have spent a lot of time on the road, whether it be for family outings or business. I’ve traveled by car, motorcycle, train, boat, and plane. But the Art of Flying isn’t quite what it used to be. Credits: Cover Photo Courtesy of Unplash

Episode 9: "Never"
The English language constantly changes. New words are added to the dictionary every year to reflect new technology, street talk or colloquialisms.  But one word seems to challenge me in its everyday use. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 10: "Pleasantville"
There are two kinds of relatives; those that irritate you, and those that fascinate you. This story is about the latter of the two.

Episode 11: "What We Wish You Knew About Us"
There have been many books written and movies made about the differences between Men and Women. But it’s really not Rocket Science, in fact it’s pretty basic. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 12: "Mortality Reality"
Life consists of various stages of aging. It goes from our Youth, through Middle Age, culminating in the final group known as the Elderly. This story may not seem to begin that way, but I hope you will listen to the end. Not for my sake but for Willie’s. Credits: Cover Photo Jeff Evans

Episode 13: "The Clock Whisperer"
The value of an Heirloom is relative to either a monetary value or an emotional one. Not sure of the true value of one such “non-working” heirloom I inherited, I sought out a repairman with Old School Craftsmanship, but found much, much more.   Credits: David Raizor as Charlie  Speedy Arnold as Customer  Lucian Alexe for Cover Photo.

Episode 14: "The Crescent"
I have covered almost all modes of transportation in my writing. But I learned that Trains can hold a very special place in my heart.

Episode 15: "Obtaining a Florida Driver's License"
Anytime you relocate to another state certain "issues" must be resolved. Driver's License, License Plates, and a new Physician are just some examples. But do these things REALLY have to be this complicated?

Episode 16: "Farewell to a Stranger"
The Brotherhood of the Military is a difficult thing to explain. It doesn’t matter in what branch you served, there is a common bond that has no borders. When a call is put out to honor a Marine, my Army service responds in a way that’s very special.
