Caveman Words by Owen Picton-

If you like these life stories, articles, displays, and diary's; would you consider making a donation to a church or religious affiliated non profit institution or to Space Exploration through a Foundation or other non profit institution (initially for Moon Exploration). Do this in the memory of my first wife Dianne Picton or one of the other people indicated. I put these written memories together because I was afraid they were going to be lost to mankind.
