Say Hello To Dave - Part Three

He had sat in his Chevy at the far end of "Bobby's Cafe" for several hours, listening to the 'oldies station' and watching the in and out foot traffic. There was the usual trucker business that stopped at the gas station for fuel and then to kill some time waiting for another load assignment headed... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Two

He sat in a small café about 40 miles north of Atlanta, just off I-75. There was no big sign on the freeway telling passing travelers to ‘Stop In to Say Hi!’ to the folks at “Bobby’s Café.” There was a gas station that brought in tons of traffic for those wishing to avoid stopping in Atlanta and its...

Say Hello To Dave - Part One

He sat at the window of the diner gazing out the dirty window. The sign over the window read “Dusty’s Diner” and other than he was slightly better dressed than ol’ Dusty’s daily customers. Two days from now, no one would even remember him - by face anyway. To even the most intent observer, his gaze... Sign in to see full entry.

Dave Comes To Visit... Again

I'm working on cleaning up some of my older stories, especially those that were written as my heart issues began to get severe.

Starting as soon as later this afternoon or at worst, tomorrow morning, I'm going to re-post a story that hasn't been on here in several years. With a new crop of readers, hopefully it will gather new eyes and give me a place to clean up the original story. I am going to shelve 'Dystopia' for a few... Sign in to see full entry.

More Fiddle Faddle

Perhaps you can relate, perhaps you can't. With my new diagnosis and the winter finally retreating, I've been spending a lot more time outside and a lot less time writing. Writing is still very very important to me, but I need to be outside in the woods and by the lakes and streams here. Once I get... Sign in to see full entry.

Nauseating Filler

I'm working to get back on the "Dystopia" story after losing my stride for week. In the meantime, I'm adding some bits and pieces from another book I'm working on.

I Interrupt This Story

This story is a long one in Blog It terms. It's about 4550 words. This will be one of my five short stories for the Rave Reviews Book Club. Yes, it needs some attention in a couple places, but I have fifty more days to finish it. I hope you enjoy it. There is a moral at the end. The Man in the... Sign in to see full entry.
