Home & Collection Status

Site Update:  (January 12, 2018) Added new story; This is the story of how my wife and I helped make history during our 10th anniversary trip to Europe.  If you have any interest in how history sometimes finds you rather than the other way around, you must read this story.  A direct link to it is below as the first in my list of Newest Stories or just click here.

Welcome! My site name, “Gary A. Wilson Stories in a Dime of Time” reflects my self-imposed limit of keeping each story length to under 2000 words so the average reader can finish one in 10 minutes, thus a “Dime” .    The theme of each story remains the same; fun autobiographical stories I like to share about growing up.  If you see yourself in a story and wouldn’t mind my using your real name, please contact me and I’ll enthusiastically make the update.

My Home Page

Hello & thanks for stopping by.

Photo Note: Above is a Google maps shot of where many of my stories came from. Petaluma, Calif. didn’t have this many homes in the 60s or 70s, but we did have nearly endless opportunities for adventures.  This collection of stories are my memories of growing up in a great area.  I hope you enjoy this glance back at a very different time.

Navigation: Start by clicking on “Stories” above.  They are sorted and arranged roughly by my age at the time of the event.

Smaller screens: use the small, 3-line menu button, next to the magnifying glass to reveal the story menu.

If you chose to follow my site, you’ll only get alerts when I add a whole new story.  I’m not a blogger (so you won’t get any blow-by-blow details of my daily movements) but I am a passionate story teller.  This site is just a portal for sharing my collection.

At this time the collection is not complete and I have many more stories to add so, please follow or check back often.

Please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by and where you’re from if we don’t knew each other.  You can also reach out to me via email at: garywilson5560@gmail.com.
