Garry...
Your web page is very well done; I enjoyed reading it very much.
My name is Ted McCormick and I live with my wife in Flint, Michigan USA.
I am editor of MixedMediaStudios http://www.mixedmediastudios.com
I was surfing the net and I ran up on your web page.
I am a Viet Nam veteran and I visited your country during my tour of duty in
Sept 1970, I have a section in Mixed Media Studios dedicated to the war.
You might be interested in the Literature page at MixedMedia, I have all of
Jack London’s works published along a biography of Ernest Hemmingway with many
links for artists.
Keep up the excellent work and never become discouraged when you have
something to say...
Your Friend...
Ted McCormick

Garry ...
Excellent job.
I will save your page and publish some your work in my next edition.
Unfortunately, I just loaded the present issue last week so we are looking at
next month or maybe later.
It’s great to see that some people still care what America stands for.
I saw on your page that you like German Shepard’s; they are my favorite breed
also.
My Shepard "Jack" passed away last year from cancer of the spleen, that is him on my cover page of MixedMedia.
I miss him everyday, I didn’t even know he was sick until the day that he passed, he died in my arms.
Keep up the good work Garry and stay in touch.
Ted

Good work Garry...

I will place your work on this page:
http://www.mixedmediastudios.com/page15.html
Go to page and check it out.
Great picture of Jack Keroac...he started the Beatnik craze in the fifties
with his book "Route 66"...( he looks a little drunk in this shot...LOL), it
was a good book although he never really wrote anything after that compared
with 66.
One of my favorite writers was Jack London; his complete works are there,
"Call of the Wild, To light a Fire, John Barleycorn, etc...It’s a must read
compliments of SCU at Berkley, he was an amazing writer and lived a life most of us dream about.
I also have Mississippi writers...great stuff; the State of Mississippi has
produced some great talent.
I also have included Ernest Hemingway, I love his books.
Robert Anderson (Little Hawk) is a Korean War Veteran and amateur writer who is also a friend I met through the Viet Vet chat site I belong to.
Your poetry will add a nice touch to page.
I get lost here often myself.
Later...
Ted
