My brother Mike has a real job but he is also a writer. Some of his writings are funny, some are thought provoking. Some are pure fiction, some are loosely based on actual experiences (we call them "colorized"), some are accurate (sometimes we call these "boring"). I have enjoyed them, and some day he's going to want to collect these into a book, so I've started to collect them and try to preserve them for his use and your enjoyment.. These are original works, and are copyrighted by Michael Vrtis.
