Help Me Choose
by: Lloyd Tackitt , Texas 5/16/2013
For a while now I've been looking into the several foundations that help wounded soldiers returning from overseas war zones, trying to choose the one that I want to support the most. Yesterday I finally found one that seems just right to me - I posted a little on it, the healing waters through fly fishing. It has a program that I think is excellent.
The way I'm planning to donate is by publishing a book of short stories, and donating 100% of any proceeds I receive. The stories, or at least most of them, have already been published here - most as blogs, some as articles. I don't know for sure how many I'll include yet, but probably between 10 and 15. At least enough to make it a reasonable sized book.
Once the book is available in paperback I'll send a box full of them to Walter Reed for the soldiers to read, assuming they want to of course. Given the situation they're in I intend to make the contents of the book mostly or completely from humorous stories - I would love to give those guys a grin while they're recovering.
So, here's where I need your help - if you would be so kind, please let me know which of the past blogs and articles you think would best fit the bill. I would really appreciate it - it's difficult for me to be objective of my own work.

Granny's Teeth and When a Good Idea Goes Bad are a couple favorites. The Buzzard story is really funny as well.
