"The Best That I Could Do"
Stories by Patrick Combs
Ah, the stories we could tell
And if it all blows up and goes to Hell
I wish that we could sit apon a bed in some motel
And listen to the stories we could tell
- John Sebastian

These are stories from my life. The first story I wrote was my $95,000 story. I wrote it as a matter of self-defense, (to protect myself from a mad-bank), and finishing it took a long, but I was hooked and kept writing up other stories. I intend these stories to be nothing more than my own journal of times I never want to forget. But I post them publicly in case you find at least one of them to be time well spent.
