How I Got This Way...
Lewis in Love
In 1970 I spent most of my off time from the police department in the company of horses. Horse barns, stables, and western stores were excellent places to meet members of the opposite gender. I, in my early twenties, recently divorced, slightly disillusioned, and less than totally confident, was grateful for association with women of common interest, easy conversation, and low pressure. I frequented one particular western store on a regular basis for supplies, tack, and Tammi.
Just two nights later was the annual Policeman’s Ball, and I had already made a date for the event. As I saw it, a date was a promise. Laura insisted I keep my promise. I dressed in a tux and left her at home. The young woman’s name was Kathleen…a statuesque Irish lass nearly six feet tall, red of hair, green of eye, and the absolute personification of feminine pulchritude. We had been going out occasionally for several months. She claimed to be waiting for that mystical moment when our spirits would meet and entwine, allowing us, then, the freedom to proceed to the ultimate level of physical yada yada yada…
I picked her up at her apartment on schedule, and I freely admit that she was indeed beautiful, dressed in a low cut white silk sheath, turning heads and raising blood pressure with every magnificent breath she took. In five-inch green velvet heels, she was the most awesome woman in the ballroom; and she knew it, graciously acknowledging compliments and open stares with serene style. She was attentive to me, friendly to all; and I was the envy of many. When we arrived back at her apartment after the dance she, the very same woman who had been backpedaling with the grace of a welterweight for six months, announced the time had come. We had reached the moment in our relationship that she had been waiting for. The point of surrender, consummation, and sweet release was at hand. She kicked off her shoes, sank to my eye level, and gave me a slow grin. “No thanks,” I said. “I’d really rather go home.”
And now, 47 years later, that remains the best decision I ever made.

TRAIL SERIES UPDATES
David's audio part of Glory Trail is finished. The producer needs to finish a little "polishing" then the book is on its way to the audio publisher. Things are still on schedule, so if all goes as it should, the audio version will still be available in about 2 months.
And, the new Trail book is coming along though it's still a work in progress. The book should be completed by late Spring 2018.
We named the channel David R Lewis. So, you can just type in David's name, and the YouTube search engine will pull it up, or you can click on any of the links below.
