Jeffrey’s father worked at the local manufacturing plant his whole life. He encouraged his children, every evening, to get an education so they did not “end up there”.
Not that it was a bad job. It had provided his family a comfortable home and allowed him and his sister to go to college.
When Jeffery met Sharon he was glad his father had insisted on his education. He got a job downtown and within two years had enough for a ring. They were married last fall at the Country Club. Jeffrey knew from the look on his dad’s face, he had made him proud.

Those of you who have consistently read my fiction stories know that I tend to lean toward the plausible. Very few people are murdered on these pages. It’s just not what I write. My dream has always been to write/report human interest stories. I think that comes through in my fiction stories as well.
This week the closest I will probably ever get to realizing that dream came true when an essay I wrote about our country bridges was published as the cover story in a local magazine. I’m sharing this here today with you because like I always say, I can’t be famous unless everyone knows about me.
