CW, the later years


  1. Get off my lawn you whippersnappers

  2. I'll bet he knew how to use that pistol!

  3. Good trigger discipline there, Sam!

  4. Is that Samuel Clemens, a.k.a., Mark Twain?

    I reckon I've probably read everything he ever wrote, and I usually end up laughing so hard, that I'm blinded by the tears rolling down my cheeks.

    He lived a colorful and remarkable life, but one negative thing I can say about Mark Twain is that when serving in the Confederate Army, he and some others DESERTED and fled to California.

    (That is greatly significant for me, as I was a soldier in the United States Army, and my ancestor served in the Confederate Army.)

    In Mark Twain's later years, he chose to become a Yankee, living and dying in Elmira, New York.
