  8. I'm for anything that makes us less of a police state. When I was a kid I drove a truck with deer rifles in the gun rack to school. Granted- they were locked in the racks and had trigger locks. No one even NOTICED. Anyone who might accidently do that today would probably get a hellfire missile in their face. You have to have the perspective of being alive for a few generations to see how far the country has slipped in the direction of authoritarianism. PS- For those of you where it's legal, cannabis tea is WONDERFUL for arthritis and rheumatism- especially when its related to cold weather. Might want to go light with it and have some snacks around if you are new to it.

    The Long Way Home

    The Long Way Home Zombies don't move fast but, once they sense prey, they don't give up. Jack wasn't sure exactly how they did it: by smell, vision and definitely by sound. Noise will always get their attention. A gun shot would be like ringing a dinner bell for them for miles in every direction. That's why he carried a 32 inch titanium crowbar instead of a rifle. He was careful in his scrounging. He had to be to have been alive this long. He had dispatched over a hundred zombies as he plundered the pantries of the houses on the outskirts of town. Once those were picked clean, he had to go further into town. That was why he had a backpack full of Dinty Moore beef stew and forty zombies chasing him down the long road out of town into the hills. It was easy enough to stay ahead of them at a fast walk. Occasionally one of the fresher ones would get too close and catch a crowbar to the cranium. It was easy enough four hours ago but now, Jack was beginning to sweat- literally and figuratively. Of course he had been chased before. Ones and twos were no problem. A dozen had once followed him out into the woody hills where he had taken them out one by one. But forty? Oh crap. Oh crap. Oh crap. Oh crap on a crap cracker. As the shadows lengthened, Jack knew he had to make a move. Some kind of move. Sprinting to break away from the pack was out of the question. Hours ago, that would have been his choice. It wasn't anymore. He was too deep in town when this started. Now, he just didn't have the legs for it. If Jack was going to survive this cluster fuck, he was going to have to use every trick in his playbook and, make up a few more along the way. He crested the hill in front of the Johnson's ranch and decided it was time to start. Jack cut toward the wood farm fence and deftly hopped over it. For the zombies, the farm fence proved a difficult challenge. Slow and clumsy on a good day, the zombies tried to go over or through the fence only to catch a crow bar to their heads. Jack dispensed with twelve of their number before too many made it across to his side. With his entourage numbers somewhat reduced, he made his way across the pasture to another fence and repeated the performance. On the second fence he was able to bludgeon another ten but his arms were burning as hot and painfully as his thighs. Now that he had the zombie crowd cut down to more manageable numbers, Jack turned towards home. He still had about eighteen of the shamblers on his trail but they were pretty stupid. They kept falling for the same trick. Two more fences and they were done. Jack made it to the stronghold well after dark. The factory was the perfect hideout for their group of survivors. There was only the front gate and a ten foot cyclone fence with a privacy barrier surrounding the entire property. One of the kids was watching from a concealed lookout position and the gates opened and closed as soon as he was inside. The kid on watch Randy said, "What took you so long Jack? We were worried." Jack sighed, put his arm around Randy's shoulder, handed his pack to the kid and said, "Oh you know. Just another day at the office."

    No more Gay-Straight Alliance

    Humph! We were social justice warriors before it was cool. Now that it's what the cool kids do, I'll have to find something new and anti-social to occupy my angst.
  15. Chapter 16 of my stalled novel Operation Hammerhead will post soon. Chapter 17 will follow soon. I intend to finish it in the next couple of months. Sorry to take so long on getting back to this. I just finished a new degree in which the writing was considerably.. less fun. I must stay close to home, I can bang on some of my stalled projects.

    God made you this way

    The problem protestants have with this is that to accept God made you this way, they have to accept implied biblical error in the six whole verses in the protestant bible that might apply to homosexuality. It is hard for any religion to acknowledge an inconsistency. They have, and will, LITERALLY go to war over stuff like that. Europe's history in these matters is quite bloody.

    The Quarry

    I read that way back when in the nineties. It had a lot of 70s nostalgia in it before it was popular. Falling Off a Log was a lot of fun too. Lot's of the old giants don't write for free anymore. I miss them.

    The Words I Don't Ever Say

    The Words I Don't Ever Say When the memories come I can’t sleep Cause the time seems to drag on somehow I’d give up the world just to touch you It seems nowhere is home for me now In this sleep deprived moment On this endless hot summer night This night will eventually be over But I will never be right. We had our time together Sweet days we thought would last I’ve never wanted another Far too soon those days had passed All that I have are my memories Sweet lies I tell myself about the past It’s not at all like it is in the movies The days just go by so fast. You took best things about me When you left me here all alone Here I remain in an empty house No one could ever call a home. We had our time together Sweet days we thought would last I’ve never wanted another Far too soon those days had passed
