Written by: Archibald Sharron [Archie]

My name is Archibald although everyone calls me Archie. I was born in 1922 on a farm in Missouri. I have (and have had) a great life. I have outlived my parents by 30 years each, I am still going strong and I have a very nice family.

My wife Enin passed away a couple of years ago, and after she died I realized that there were a lot of things I didn't know about her. Or never thought to ask.

We had a long marriage. She only left me once. That's a joke. We liked to bicker and tease each other as our kids say "us old folks do to know we're still alive." We had 3 children, none of who turned out too bad and now five grandchildren.

I am here to leave behind my history for my children and great-children and beyond. I feel it's an obligation of every person to transfer some sense of history and roots to the coming future world leaders.

My writing may not be great, funny, or even remotely interesting, but at least it does come from me.
