Mom’s Last Call

Mom’s Last Call

In 1983, I was living and working for a large nuclear power plant in southern California. I had just returned to work from having an emergency surgery. It was about ten minutes until quitting time, when an employee came through my workstation and I had to search him before...

Two of my friends were hiking through the woods behind the Regal Oaks housing development a little while ago. They hiked for what they said was around two hours. There is a trail, and the land is very remote. In several places, my friends noted, that the trail was...
Seventh Son

Seventh Son

This is a short, second hand account about my grandfather. The way I was told is that my grandfather, Benjamin Green had healing powers. He was the seventh son of the seventh son, and in the bible, it's said that these individuals can say a certain verse out of...
