Blanche

In the 1950s, the southern portions of Illinois were often much farther south than a map might indicate. The pace of life in many of its parts was slower and more elemental than among the northern tribes, and a trip to that area could not only transport the traveler much farther south than […]

Wildlife

http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/Wildlife.mp3

I live in the country off a less than satisfactory gravel road. Those facts make it very foolish to open any windows on the north, south, or west side of the house during warm weather, unless I develop a cavalier attitude toward dust. On an average summer day, an open living room window coupled […]

Old Joe

Hoofbeats in the Fog http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/OldJoe.mp3

It was damp, it was foggy, it was chilly, it was perfect. My wife and I crunched our way across the gravel parking lot of the Jock’s kitchen heading for the racetrack. It was barely dawn, and we’d just had breakfast with LaVette Drummond, a 40-year old Louisianan, who looked […]

Maiden Voyage

http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/MaidenVoyage.mp3

“You are not gonna believe this,” he said. He was Steve Umpke, head mechanic at the Honda shop. It was the early 1970s and Honda led the pack of Japanese motorcycles infiltrating with huge success around the globe. Norton, Triumph, Ariel, BSA, Royal Enfield and others would all soon be names of the past […]

Larry

Nice Kitty http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/Larry.mp3

I was tackled by a tiger once. I must stress that it was voluntary for both me and the tiger. I was recruited to be tiger tackled as part of a fund raising event to support some charity or other during other events at a county fair. I was coerced by individuals […]

The Lion Sleeps Today

http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/TheLionSleepsToday.mp3

Joggers and runners annoy me. Before my lovely bride, Laura, ventured off for several years occupying Afghanistan, allowing me to become a gentleman of leisure and relocate to my scenic country estate, we lived in an apartment in the city. While there, we acquired a canine – an Australian Cattle Dog, or Blue Heeler, […]

Charges Dismissed

http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/ChargesDismissed.mp3

An attorney I know once said to me, and I’ll paraphrase: “It’s good to know the law. It’s better to know the judge.” When I was a rookie police officer, I had the rather idealistic belief that the law was fair – and I was, for the most part, correct. Those that are trusted […]

Cell Phony

http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/CellPhony.mp3

Some of the individuals who know me would tell you that Ol’ Lewis has yet to enter the 1990s. Not true. I have recently plunged into the 2000s. My bride and I, because we live in a very remote area, have recently given up landlines entirely, and now have opted for cell phones only […]

Pigs

Swines, Swinettes, and Swinitos http://heartlandmemories.com/bits/Pigs.mp3

I like pigs. I’ve known a great number of them in my life – some good, some bad, some dangerous – but on the whole, I find a great deal to recommend them. I certainly find pigs less tedious than some of those pre-shrunk, permanently vibrating, ankle tall, remote control […]
