About Ernest Winchester

I began spinning yarns at a young age, regaling my audience (my long suffering mother) each afternoon with tall tales of the second grade happenings of the day.
Years later, the duties of raising a family of five children curtailed my writing cravings until retirement allowed time to indulge my fertile imagination. I can now claim the dubious title of author without fearing being struck by lightning for lying. Over a dozen novels—only four published so far—and close to two dozen short stories total my output since I starting drawing SS checks. Retirement is grand.

This was quite entertaining I couldn't help but imagine this short as the basis of a skit on the Colbert Show or maybe Conan O'Brien.

A very well-written piece from someone with a wonderful sense of humor!

Mr. Winchester is a terrific writer. In reference to his story, July 5, 1776, in my oppinion this is the style that should be used in history books throughout the country to educate our children. What we've always needed, in a classroom setting, is a way of dipicting history in an interesting and up-beat manner. Mr. Winchester has mastered this skill to perfection. Okay - there was humor involved, but isn't this the best way to tell a story if the author wishes to captivate and maintain the interest of his readers?

Great Fun at the expense of our forefathers! I'm sure there is probably more accuracy with this story than some of the more official accounts. Thanks for the chuckle my friend and excellent arrangement of 833 words.

Methinks that perhaps, my friend Ernest WAS THERE in another life. AS is often remarked, he and Patton often spoke of such things.
