  1. Today
  2. I was stunned that Oklahoma legalized medicinal marijuana. I thought it was one of the signs of the Apocalypse. I don't use anymore, but I support it's legalization. My nephew was injured in an accident and became addicted to opioids (Big Pharma will burn in Hell for how they have addicted so many in America to their poison). Cannabis can be such a far more effective substitute and far less dangerous. My nephew might be alive today had he had legal access to medicinal cannabis. On a lighter note, I was amused to see a picture of the Canadian flag with the maple leaf substituted by a marijuana leaf!

    The Cabin in Maine by Alan Dwight

    Thanks for your input. I shall certainly consider it before I decide.

    Jack in the Box, by Driver

    You also may want to read, or re-read The Quarry and Falling Off a Log. Characters from these stories show up eventually.

    Lucas

    Thanks guys, I’m pleased you enjoyed it. Never having had much dealing with kids of any age since I was one myself, I find small kids, past the puke, piss and poop stage, can be fascinating to watch as they interact with their surroundings. But it was the sense of the inevitable that got me when I saw his name, Lucas, written on the side of his drink bottle.

    Jack in the Box, by Driver

    Sorry folks, one thing I left out of my note above is this. If you start reading "Jack in the Box" and feel drawn in, be sure to take the time to read Driver's previous story "Sudden Storm". It provides necessary context for the new story.

    Jack in the Box, by Driver

    Amazing news. I thought he was done. Thanks, James. C

    Jack in the Box, by Driver

    Driver has started a new story and is three chapters in. Too soon to give you a synopsis but I'm already hooked. "Jack in the Box" can be found at http://www.storiesbydriver.net/

    The Cabin in Maine by Alan Dwight

    To be honest, I like the sequel of two times a week, or even once a week. If a story is complete, I always hesitate to start, because of the amount. (And the knowledge of being unable to stop halfway. πŸ™‚ ) The extra benefit is that the characters are "with you" for several weeks, combined with the curiosity of what will happen a few days later. It makes a story more "alive".

    The Cabin in Maine by Alan Dwight

    Sorry about that. As you may remember, I usually post my stories all at once, because when stories are posted serially people tend to lose track of the beginning by the time they get to the end. However, I shall reconsider. My next story is probably 12 chapters long which would make it six weeks. We shall see. Thanks for your concern, Alan

    Very nice, even the twist at the end. C

    Awww. How sweet to find such rapport. A worthy 'Boys on Trains' interlude. I won't ask what was added to your stewed coffee.

    The Cabin in Maine by Alan Dwight

    Thanks Oliver and Colin. I'm fine. And thanks for your comments. I believe I will post the next story all at once, as that's the way I like to read them. ο»Ώ Arrghhhhhhh For the first time, Alan posted-at his request- a novel serially. We fast tracked it like we do with most stories these days at two chapters a week (one each on Wednesdays and Saturdays. At eight chapters it only took four weeks. But you guys complained. Now you guys go and talk him into posting all at once... a practice we seldom use anymore at AD. That means that his story is likely to be overlooked by readers who do a quick scan of the Current Serial Novels on the homepage. Grrrrr πŸ€”

    Yes. It's strange to feel sad at a happy ending. πŸ˜–πŸ˜’πŸ˜„

    Thanks Bruin. We'll try to keep everyone informed, but with something this complex β€” and only partially implemented across sites β€” it's tough to keep up. The Symantec explantation is the best available for now. BTW, there are annoyances using HTMLS Everywhere with some browsers, Chrome in particular. Colin

    Lucas

    Pedro has been on vacation in the US. Like Peter in his story 'The Tourist' he has been indulging his interest in railroads. Also like Peter, he met someone called Lucas: Lucas ........... A boyhood interest the same, In the railroad car you came Sat opposite to share the ride, It was foretold I’d meet your name. Not shy, no wanting face to hide Along the seat made impish slide And β€˜til closed on safety grounds Too far through window leaning tried. Delight at all the railroad sounds Your curiosity knows no bounds And as you ate your picnic food Emotion in my heart compounds Because your table manners crude, Which really could be said most rude, Amuse me so that we both smile As I drink my coffee stewed. At times the other watch awhile And find no sign of risk or guile And times we look and watch the view So bond with every passing mile. And then you touch me with your shoe So footsie I would play with you But romance is not the game For you, my friend, are only two. ……………………………………. Β© copyright pedro October 2018

    Ashes and Embers by Wayne Grey

    The final chapter has just appeared at TSL. As Trab said, is has been a great story, well written. I had expected it to end at a certain point some chapters ago and wondered why it was continuing. I now understand why and congratulate the author for deciding to take it forward from there.
  19. What splendid copy for such a spliffing splendid day!

    The Long Way Home

    LOL... cat literature!
  21. Yup, I don't imbibe either, but I agree with the legalization. The prohibition was causing *far* too many problems.

    Thank you Colin. I checked out the piece on the Symantec site, thanks for the link. Am at least slightly less confused now... πŸ˜„
  24. Never tried it, and unlikely to start now. My reactions to drugs, and foods, are often so unusual that I try to avoid anything different, as I never know how I'll react. I'm happy everyone is happy though; it's high time they righted the wrong of its prohibition. Now to get all those criminal records expunged.
