About the Author:
A.C. “Carl” Ward is pleased you have visited this site. Carl uses his middle name for his friends because for the first 18 years of his life, he was known as “Red” because of the alarmingly flaming red hair on his head. As he got older and began to work in a grocery store, they said you have to have a name tag. We can’t put “Red” on your tag. You have to come up with a different name. He chose his middle name. Since you are here, Carl wants to consider you a friend. Welcome my friend and I pray you find my story worthy of your short visit with me. Don’t hesitate to to comment. I have over 74 years of learning through the university of hard knocks. I am slow and I am still learning.
