The Principal of Fighting

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

Theo Vitali was a wild man. Greek and Italian, his passions ran nearly as high as his blood pressure. He was a screamer, a thrower, a man so driven that, while he was the high school football coach in my hometown, we lost only two games in 6 years. In the noisy and […]

Green Beret

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

I am a member of the Vietnam generation, a survivor of the draft, Johnson, Nixon, Bundy, and MacNamara’s band. I didn’t go to Vietnam. My service consisted of only one and a half days in the military – expelled from uniform because of a knee ailment common to growing young men – but I […]

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 […]

Dudley

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

His name was Dudley Babbit, and he was a real piece of work. In the 1960s and 70s, Dudley was at the top of his game. One of the premiere trainers of gaited horses on the planet, famous and coveted in song and story in an elite business driven by large sums of money […]

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 […]

Ill Fated

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

Mike Cramer was ill-fated. He and I attended both grade and high school together and, over the years, I watched Mike deliver himself into disaster after disaster. If there was doggie doody within a block and a half, Mike would find a way to step in it. If there was a body of water […]

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 […]
