Paul struggled to get up. He gave Amy a playful slap on her backside before helping her clean the dishes. “That was an excellent meal, Amy. I don’t think I have ever enjoyed trout so much in my entire life. So, you really want to hear more about my younger years? I know you are one hundred percent correct about the death of JFK making a big impact on everyone. I am really sort of amused about your prom experience. You really were raised strictly. I know for sure if we were in the same school, I would never have gone out with you back then. So it is strange we ended up together,” Paul stated.

Chapter One Paul opened the tent flap and greeted a new day. He paused, a moment, to enjoy the beautiful gifts nature provided. On the western horizon, the nearly full moon lay bloated and pale. Looking to the east, he marveled at the red, orange, and yellow explosion of predawn glory, heralding the start of a new day. Silently, he stood drinking in the panorama spread before him.
