It's A Springtime Thing - Part Seven

Up To Bat, Two Men On Ken had no idea of why his friends would be carrying weapons and looking for him but yet, they were. Always one to play it safe, he crawled behind the prickly shrubbery and kept his head down but it was like they had spotted him before he had seen them. The group cut across the...

It's A Springtime Thing - Part Six

Dreaming Your Life Away Despite the fact that he had a front apartment on the main street of a small town, it was a rare thing when the noises outside would rouse Ken from his sleep. For that same reason, Ken startled and sat up in bed as he heard the crowd outside quite distinctly calling his name.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's A Springtime Thing - Part Five

Meanwhile, Ken sat on his bed listening to the older couple next door continue to complain about him being in the front apartment. It didn't make sense they would be angry because he had never partied there. All of his parties had been elsewhere, and all he did was come home and flop. He sat very... Sign in to see full entry.

It's A Springtime Thing - Part Four

Sometimes You Fall Down Ken fell into a deep and dream filled sleep. He dreamed of one of his two-liter mixtures and the party he had attended last weekend. Other drinking-related dreams shorts floated in and out of his subconscious like movie trailers, one after another until he heard the arguing.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's A Springtime Thing - Part Three

Ken sat there for almost an hour, half dozing and half mumbling about leaving the two liter in the office. Gradually his head cleared enough for him to get up and walk toward the Rudyard City Community Hospital about two blocks beyond his apartment. Six blocks and forty minutes later, he presented...

It's A Springtime Thing - Part Two

When he had time to spare before heading in, today not being one of those days, he liked to stop on the bridge that divided Main Street into its 'east' and 'west' sides. The more impoverished citizens of Rudyard City tended to be on the west side of the bridge while its more affluent folks made... Sign in to see full entry.

It's A Springtime Thing - Part One

NOTE: This story is true and as word for word as it was told to me in a frenzied ninety minute face to face talk with the real 'Ken' as possible. Sadly, 'Ken' was my brother-in-law and he died about sixteen months after he told me this story. I'll explain that part of this story when I finish... Sign in to see full entry.

Up Next

I've decided that everything I wrote and published between late 2014 / early 2015 and mid 2016 needs to be 'dusted off.' It is very clear to me hat while the stories were sound, the delivery left much to be desired grammatically and in some cases, plot wise. I've found words missing, names changed,...

Travel Plans and Getting Paid in The Snowy 906

I pause for a few days after this last story so I can set up for the next story I will be posting here. I've decided that if I do go to visit my daughter and her family, I will be leaving Wednesday morning. If all goes as planned, I'll be coming back on Friday afternoon. Ooh! Something nice just...

Things My Father Taught Me Lessons In Life - The Finale

As you might have expected, I wrote the foreword at the beginning of this project, and I am writing the prologue at its completion. As I have gone back and read what I’ve written, I realize that the process of writing this story has changed me. I’ve written stories since I was about five or six.... Sign in to see full entry.
