  • Thunder At River Station

    “Well, Doc, I guess by now you understand we’ve got no goddamn use for sympathizers who love those black skinned folks.” Realizing that the dial of his life was showing the hands near the midnight hour, the trembling doctor felt a sudden serene and willful peace come over him.

    Thunder at River Station is a compelling and vivid fictional story of two doctors of medicine involved with the thundering sounds coming from millions of long horn cattle, blazing guns, and men with very different views on life that were once part of the expanding and rugged Western frontier spreading from Missouri to Texas during the turbulent years of the mid and late 1800s.

    This is a must-read for those with interest in the Civil War and the issues faced by individuals and our entire nation during that time.

  • Tina et Rudy

    — Mais Rudy, tu ne peux pas abandonner ces choses-là : le pâturage, monter à cheval,
    planter du pois et piquer des herbes.
    — Jamais, mademoiselle Lucienne ! Si je ne le fais pas, je trahis mon pays agricole, je trahis
    mes origines, je trahis mes parents et je vous trahis aussi, les gens de la ville.
    RÉFLEXION
    Si le hasard existe, la destinée aussi.
    Les gens affranchis sont réellement riches.
    Les jeunes gens sont capables ! Ne les limitez pas !
    Ne trahissez jamais vos amis !
    Un bon ami peut être de n’importe quelle nationalité !
    Certains hommes sont réellement transnationaux.
    Répondez à l’appel de votre coeur !
    Le monde est à nous.
    Donnez et prenez aussi !
    Si nous avons besoin de l’intelligence et du courage pour la vie, bien sûr, pour bien mourir,
    nous avons besoin de la foi en Dieu à travers son Fils Jésus-Christ.
    C’est bien le contenu de Tina & Rudy.

  • Trips

Now. What. A resurrection? It was the older brother’s face that caused Stacey to think to turn and to run, … from the two revenants.
