Some of Elmer¿s poems were getting lost so family and friends urged him to write a book to preserve them. Finally in 2007, Elmer decided to write the book. But rather than just preserve the poems, he decided to also include vignettes of memories as a child of the Great Depression, World War II, career, second courtship and life as an innkeeper. The memories reflect Elmer¿s strict Christian upbringing, years of rebellion, then a return to his spiritual roots. The poems sandwiched between the vignettes run from the nearly risqu¿ to spiritual. Most of the old stories set to verse are meant to amuse you and Elmer¿s memories may remind you of your own.

Elmer Mulhausen is a native of Oklahoma City and a Marine Corps veteran. He retired in 1993 from his career as an agency executive for the State Farm insurance Companies.

Then Evelyn suddenly passed away leaving Elmer alone after 50 years of marriage. Elmer started writing cowboy type poetry as part of his grief recovery. Elmer married Jo Ann Albright in July, 2000. She wasn¿t ready to retire, so they bought a large home on Lake Whitney, Texas then renovated it into Lakehaven Bed & Breakfast Inn. Elmer celebrated his 80th birthday in May, 2008. He enjoys hosting old and new friends as they visit Lakehaven.
