If I want to find an agent to help me find a publisher for my book, I need a connection of some sort. I need to know an insider. When I think about the connections I might have, I know my son's future stepfather is a local political mucketty muck who has all sorts of connections. But given he has little to do with publishing and given the nature of the lynchpin to the relationship, it's a dead end for sure. So I have nothing. No connections, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, especially me when I consider the aversion I have to making “the connect”, a cornerstone to how I've run my life.... Read More

An Acolyte of the State (we'll just say it like it is...church and state are ONE) comes to petition the Great OrQuinn, the voice of god, and the head of his bureaucracy in this world. This poor Acolyte needs to know how much vacation they will have in 6 months so they can plan their honeymoon with their boss, because everyone in the World Bureaucracy is married to their work. As the clerk finishes reading off the petition The Great OrQuinn speaks."It is as it has always been.", The Great OrQuin pronounces in his deep, dogmatic tone.The Acolyte timidly responds, "Yes, but I've never...

Cats are like people in many ways. They have good moods and bad moods. Sometimes they want to play and other times they want to be left alone. Most of all though, just like us, they crave love and attention.

I was in my early 20's fresh from moving back to California, living with my fiancée at the time and seven other people. Money was hard to come by and the traffic in and out of the house was just too much. Her parents offered for us to move in with them and we both agreed it was a great idea. There was only one issue, cats. Her mom did not like cats and we had two of them, Frankie... Read More

There they stood: marvels of modern mansion design. Eight thousand square foot houses sitting on ten thousand square foot lots.

“I’d hate to be a gardener around here,” I remarked.

“Please, don’t start,” said Lorrie.

Might as well have told me not to breathe.

“Is that their house?”

The Santini’s house was situated smack dab in the middle of a pristine cul-de-sac that had been designed to accommodate five other homes of similar scale. Two of these homes, a French manor and an English Tudor, were already standing. Two others were under construction.

A cock strutting in the yard Found a pearl in hay It’s only mine, he called the hens Everyone here away!

He pecked it once, he pecked it twice Before taking into beak He tasted, chewed and then spat out It’s not a thing to eat.

The passage from grade school to high school in itself sometimes can be awkward. Add to this equation the fact that I spent my elementary years in a catholic school, and now I was headed off to the public school system. I was scared s**less! Even though the two schools were just miles apart, to me it was like going to another county. You see in my old school the emphasize of teaching was not spent on the foolish ideas that the Earth was made up of gases and minerals, but rather on the important aspect that the Earth was made in six days and God rested on the seventh!

Imagine how shocked... Read More

At one time or another we've all been so scared as to scream. Our mouths open wide, jaws drop to our chest and the corners of our lips are about to split as we take in the horror that is upon us. We fill our lungs to capacity for maximum sound, expecting to snap eardrums for miles. All that air goes flying out in what should have been one blood curdling scream but instead we get a sound that's quieter than a whisper. Sometimes, this is a good thing.

We had some guests over one weekend and on the second morning of a wonderful time I was in the kitchen making breakfast when one of them... Read More
