New Story

41xJBjdmrIL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_I think I forgot to mention that I recently published a new story. “Pinky Anderson And The Traveling Flea Circus” is now out in Paperback. The digital version will go live on July 4th. Kind of like a birthday present to poor, naive Pinky.

On another note, I should finish up with a compilation of short stories before the end of the summer. I’ve decided to title the book “The Lady In The Pink Underwear.” There’s story in there about a lady in pink underwear.

I am, also, working on another story that I recently mentioned on a FaceBook page I follow. I’m not sure if this is going to be a short or long story. I’m kind of leaning towards something in the middle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Major Sheep Means Major Trouble

What a night I’ve had. I just got home. And I’m glad to be here, even if I won’t be staying long. It all started yesterday because Jerry’s Bad Ass Barber Shop was closed. Who ever heard of a barber shop being closed on Wednesday?

Now, I’m talking about an actual barber shop and not some fancy hair salon where some squirrelly guy runs off at the mouth while snipping a few hairs, and then tries to talk you into letting him put goop on your head to cover up his mistakes. Keep that in mind. All the actual barber shops, like Little Joe’s, Buena Vista, and Cedar City Cutters, have alway been closed on Sunday and Monday. Hours of operation have been ten to six, or thereabouts. The only time any of them have been closed on Wednesday has been when the barber was on vacation, and you always knew that well in advance. Typically it was around the start of hunting season or a weeklong fishing derby, things like that. Continue reading

Do These Words Still Hold True?

kinderRobert Fulghum, in his book All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten, brought to light something that all of us who attended kindergarten probably learned, but, most likely, have forgotten. As we get older we tend to put aside some of those things that we learned earlier, since they do not apply to us now that we are adults. I’d like to share these words with you, here, and let you decide if only some of these things apply, or, just maybe, they all still do: Continue reading
