    I can't believe Trump said this!

    I'm afraid we're being too abrupt and critical of trump. We need to remember that, as a youth, he was repeatedly in combat with bone spurs and fought them heroically to a standstill. As such, he is a combat veteran and we should all listen carefully to his opinions because of this valuable experience. He really should have a medal. He could give himself one now.
  2. There's a delightful challenge in progress on IOMFATS titled 'Just Hangin'". Three stories so far by: Pedro, Geron Kees, and Joe Casey. Well worth the read. Great fun.

    The Frost Covered Marker

    I completely agree. This is masterful storytelling. A matter of life and death and old ski bindings.
  4. The Royal Mail is delivered by a little red truck with right hand drive. It delivers love. treasure, magic, and adventure. It also answers some of the age old questions such as: why do you smell the painting and whoever WILL clean the chandelier? Some of the characters that first got out and about in 'An Owl on My Sceptre', are here, as well as a number of new ones. I hope you enjoy it.
  5. Thank you Camy.  I was afraid that might be the case.

  6. I just read this story by Tragic Rabbit and was deeply moved. I attempted to drop him a line to say as much. I used the address tr@tragicrabbit.org but was notified that my email was undeliverable. Anyway, it's a powerful story. I've lived around and assortment of animals all my life and I'm not in the least ashamed to report that this story brought a tear to my eye. So if you see this, Tragic Rabbit: thanks!

    Read These With the Lights On

    I just read the delightful satire, "There's No Place Like Home for the Hallowdays" by Cynus. I was careful to read it during the bright mid-morning so I should be okay tonight.

    Notes

    I just read this story and it's great. The entire mood of note writing is captured. The worry, the joy, the terror, the relief. And I remembered it all in this wonderful story. You need to go there.

    Gull Island Light

    A wonderful story. Enjoyable and moving. I sent him an email too.

    Welfare Info?

    I'll just leave the raisins out; or perhaps substitute with something edible.
  12. Another wonderful story begins with a thud. The thud of a ne'er do well onto the bosom of his Mother Earth for the folly of stepping out a perfectly good airplane at altitude not to mention sundry other high crimes and misdemeanors. I thoroughly enjoyed these characters the first time around and I'm glad the author has relented and granted us a sequel.
  13. Dramatic things do happen. You might be rolling casually along and then find out that you won the lottery. Or, you might be coasting through life and your greatest immediate worry is the likelihood of a explaining a "C" in physics to your parents. And then you discover that you will be king. Come along and see how Justin Allison-Fielding handles that situation in 'An Owl on My Sceptre' this coming Saturday.

    Refugee by William King

    What a gripping chapter. I think this is going to be a brilliant discussion of humanity. I'm tempted to start discussing the story line, but that is premature. A great start to what I think will be a moving story.

    Hysterical....

    I never know whether to laugh or cry.
