"Once upon a time"
These four words that are usually etched into the mind of anyone who has ever been told a story.
Whether the story was act or fantasy does not matter once you heard those four words there could be little doubt that an interesting adventure was about to take place. As someone who enjoys a good book, a good play, or a good movie, I also enjoy a good story and so I have placed here several short stories that have come my way.
Each of these stories contains a " life lesson" of sorts, and as is the case with any lesson in taking the message to heart, or leaving it where we found it, can say a lot about who we are.
I hope you enjoy them.

Stories handed down from one generation to the next,
are often the only record of great deeds and achievements
