In July, 2014, I completed a short story about a dog’s life. You can see it here at
www.burgy.50megs.com/dog.html

 

I wrote in 2013, for my own amusement, an auto scrapbook, titled:

AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF THE AUTOMOBILE
               From the beginning of time until 2100

The book is meant for viewing on a PC monitor; the size makes it not practical for printing. It is subdivided into 16 chapters, with over 1000 pictures in 1174 pages. Most cars get their own page.

The size of the book is about 223 megabytes; the largest chapter, 1931 to 1940, is
about 24 megabytes; 97 cars in 100 pages.

In 2014 I condensed it to a smaller version, 80 pages, suitable for printing, which is on my Google Drive at:

On April 27, 2014, I disposed of my 50+ year collection of Motor Trend magazine, by donating it to a museum, Dick’s Classic Garage in San Marcos, Texas. Their web site is

I also wrote a true story of a time when God worked with us outside of time.

I also wrote a history of the automobile which is available in two forms, the first is over 1,000 pages and suitable for viewing only on a PC monitor. The second is a condensed version, 80 pages suitable for printing.

The link is The History of the automobile, 0001 to 2100


I wrote a piece on the adoption of Daniel Burgeson from Korea. It is short.

Finally, I wrote a short piece called MASKS, THE HUMAN CONDITION. It is centered on my daughter Anna.
