JOHNNY COBB Poems
The youngest marching drill team in town practiced hard so they won't call us prancers. Who were these Confederate-clad school boys? Montgomery's pride: the Rebel Lancers!
Wild Canadian Rockies
The remote Canadian wilderness Majestic forests of fir, spruce and pine. The abundance of animal wildlife Longhorn sheep, grizzlies, moose and porcupines.
A part of Americana when you're living in a small town. Remember local history as murals decorate downtown.

Fifty Years At Perry Hill
Fifty years have come and gone Since we founded Perry Hill. Seeing friends from long ago Was such a homecoming thrill.
White Marble Markers
The western world is free today But this freedom came with a cost. As the ultimate sacrifice Millions of our 'bravest' were lost.
My Limerick from Limerick
Took a long, lovely walk by the ocean, No need to apply our suntan lotion. For the hour was late But the scenery's great.
The Smells of Yellowstone
The soft, silent snow of Yellowstone Park Gives you a feeling that all is well. Along with many spectacular views I will also remember the smells.
The snow has melted. Green dots the meadow. Late afternoon walks Capture me and my shadow.
Utah's Angel: Elizabeth Smart
Day after day televisions played videos of Elizabeth Smart. This 14 year old angel from Utah soon captured Americas' heart.
Memories of Momma
When shadows fall, as they always will, I sit in my room, alone and still. Memories come back to me, pieces of the past. God, why did the years go by so fast?
Cowboy Campfire Cookout
It was our last night in Yellowstone The first scenic park site in this nation. A conestoga wagon took us to Our cowboy cookout destination.
Gazing At Geese
In the coolness of a Sunday morning I ventured down toward the ocean. Grabbing my newspaper I wondered What in the world is all that commotion?
Dolphins At Dawn
The alarm clock awakes me by six On a pharmacy trip to Orange Beach. I quickly head to the waters edge; Mother Nature is within arms reach.

The youngest marching drill team in town
practiced hard so they won't call us prancers.
Who were these Confederate-clad school boys?
Montgomery's pride: the Rebel Lancers!
Only two patrol boys were selected
from each elementary school.
Available to just the sixth graders
these junior Johnny Rebs were cool.
We drilled each week to learn all our steps.
Would we be ready? ...only time would tell.
Our first parade was down in Dothan
at the Peanut Festival, we looked swell!
We practiced weekly 'til we did our best.
Marched in ten parades across...
