This & That !

I've been kinda busy lately putting the finishing touches on my Booklet - "From A Confederate Heart"

 As it stands now it has 18 poems,some quotes from Confederate Soldiers, and a few pictures to accompany a few of the poems.

I'm going to ask $5.00 a copy + 2 first class postage stamps. $3.00 will go to the VA Flaggers, $2.00 will be used to cover my printing cost, and the stamps will be used to send you your booklet.

I ain't making a cent off the deal, but I wish to support the Flaggers.
I'm waiting on the Ink cartridges I ordered from E-bay to arrive and I will start printing them.
So if you would like a copy contact me at, It's a first come first serve type thing.
I can only print a few copies at a time cause I ain't rich, and I am going to do my best to print the books in color.
UPDATE --- The cheap e-bay ink is not giving me the quality I want, Hmmmmm ? another delay !!!!!

Moving right along --Gov. Terry McAullife’s Lee-Jackson Day Proclamation =

Kevin Levin is yammerin about what he thinks is missing from this Proclamation.

Ya know, for an educated guy he is clueless !
he says - "Perhaps this proclamation falls in line with previous years, but it seems to me to be an exercise in saying as little about the cause for which they fought as possible."

Yeeeeesh ! Kevin it's a Lee-Jackson Day proclamation, NOT a Lee - Jackson, Reason(s) for secession day proclamation.

A Simple Definition.

"It was not the flag of the Confederacy, but simply the banner, the battle-flag, of the Confederate soldier. As such it should not share in the condemnation which our cause received, or suffer from its downfall. The whole world can unite in a chorus of praise to the gallantry of the men who followed where this banner led."

From a Confederate Heart !

Jumpin Jackrabbits, just when ya think everything is going fine, ya hit print---
LOL, things sure change when ya print em out.

I'm workin real hard on my next edition of From a Confederate Heart.
I guess this is the 6th edition I've made, yea it gets easier but my expectations have increased as well.

I've got the cover finalized ( maybe ) and have sent a few "working copy's" to the Flaggers for an opinion.

(copy right 2014 David Tatum Jr)
This is the cover as it stands now.

I'm trudging along and will have a finished product one of these days.
