This book is a companion to my previous book, "Life's Lyrics - A Compilation of Songs & Poetry by Singer/Songwriter Bill Tripp." I have told many stories in this book from my prospective. I'm sure that some people whom I have mentioned in it may have a different point of view. However, it is accurate to the best of my memory. I hope my stories will be entertaining and informative. I have given my friends a preview of the stories where they are mentioned. They have without exception, approved my version of events. I therefore feel secure in presenting it to you for your enjoyment.
