Wheels Within Wheels

Before I get started on all this I want to offer a few lines to those I’ve loved and those who may read these words. I have four wagon wheels to begin the work of rebuilding an old wooden wagon, completely ruined and gone to wreck in the back yard of this house. It is of no use whatsoever, but I have dreamed and now possess four massive wheels good for nothing else unless the dream persists. I have committed to the dream thus far. In recognition of the wheels and the dream, I must see it through.

How shall I against all odds and Your infinite sense of humor accept the sword of my adversary in unconditional surrender? Shall I cut off the head for fun or just leave my enemy standing there in abject disbelief the rebel won? ♥

Broken Arrow

The enemy has overrun my position. I am surrounded. There is no escape. There is no retreat. They outnumber me. You have my coordinates. They are the enemy. They come to destroy me. They are intent upon my annihilation. Do not let them win. Disregard my own safety. Make your strike. Unleash the power at your disposal. Drop it on me. Only remember this. You gave me the victory, the victory, the victory. ♥
