922 Holoyake Road - Part 6

“What now?” he asked himself aloud. He sat heavily at the table. He sensed Isabel’s presence right behind him. Sure enough, she whispered a suggestion. “There are still bullets in the gun, George. You might be happier in the hereafter.” He lifted his shoulder, turned his head the way someone does... Sign in to see full entry.

922 Holyoake Road - Part 5

George! Already? She hurried down the hall, stopped just outside the kitchen. He was lurching toward the counter, dumped a loaf of bread onto it. He took the butcher knife out of the block and began hacking away at the loaf before turning to go out to the ice box. He brought in a plate containing... Sign in to see full entry.

922 Holyoake Road - Part 4

CHAPTER 3 - ISABEL’S VIEW Isabel was at the kitchen stove, reading the letter in her left hand, holding the lift handle in her right. She paused, lifted the lid aside to expose the flames. Her expression reflected in the flickering light was pensive, her eyes welled with unshed tears. She didn’t... Sign in to see full entry.

922 Holyoake Road - Part 3

You may remember we left off at a point when George was thinking back on the events that led up to their final confrontation. George had been in no hurry to keep his promise to Isabel.

922 Holyoake Road - about the times

PROLOGUE: 922 Holyoake Road is a “non-fiction-novel” extrapolated from newspaper accounts of a shocking murder that happened on election day, April 4, 1911. Most Twenty-First Century readers have only the vaguest notion about that time in our nation’s history. It was a whole different ballgame.... Sign in to see full entry.

At The Center yesterday Edie was upset and in tears over a bitter custody battle being waged between her son and his ex over their eleven-year-old. I won’t go into the bitter details but it was the kind of story that makes it to Dr. Phil, or worse. So I got up from my receptionist chair and gave her... Sign in to see full entry.

Went to Michael’s craft store Monday afternoon since it is Daylight Savings Time and it was going to be light long enough that I wouldn’t have to rush so as to get on the road home before sunset. I’d run completely out of yarn just about three rows before finishing a beanie, and I couldn’t leave it... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, Victoria got my email about her story for the program our group is doing at The Center – the one where I suggested the Billy Goat & the Bees story was ok, but it wasn’t about her. I suggested she write the story about the photo where some guy she’d been ignoring had photobombed their school... Sign in to see full entry.

There’s a photo of Martin Shkreli at his sentencing smirking like he was still in the catbird seat instead of on his way to seven years in prison. It seems he’s also got to pay about seven and a half million dollars in fines, which puts an itsy-bitsy dent in his net worth. If/when he gets out, he’ll... Sign in to see full entry.
