Welcome to my website

Hello, and welcome to my web site. My name is Lockie, and I would like to share some of my stories and poems with you. Please help yourself to view my pictures (some of the pictures my wife Trish took) and don't forget to sign the guest book. I absolutely love to read your comments. I would also like to add: Please feel free to criticize my work. It is through the eyes of others that we realize our mistakes.

My short stories are found in Other Ramblings. My poetry deals with many different sentiments. Some of the poems have a religious slant, some deal with depression, and there are a few that I wrote after our trip to South Africa which have a natural/wildlife theme to them.
