Catching Up

I had the official list of my completed One-Thousand stories on my laptop (which is gone now, in case you're just joining us). I spent the last couple of days piecing the list together again and realized that I hadn't mentioned my last three stories.

117: The Girl with the Halo
118: Introduction to Olfaction (Page One)
119: The Empire State Building Strikes Back!

The first two were done back in August, the third just ten days ago.

And here, I was thinking of becoming testy that no new episode of Beware the Hairy Mango had appeared in my podcast list yet. What's this about a laptop? Yes, I am just joining you. Pages lost? I imagine your pain, and it's quite sharply unpleasant. Complete sympathies, and kudos to you for rallying. I will understand & not get testy (too) if there are fewer stories but more novel.

A propos of because it matters to me, The Creepy Little Mailbox Man is my personal favorite so far, and I have sent links for it out far & wide, through Everyday Weirdness. Maisy makes a fine story, and is close behind, but the mailbox man was the first of your podcasts I listened to and therefore, besides being awfully good, has a sentimental edge on the others.

Soldier on, brother! You're dealing with the crap, doing fine work, and finding it in your time & your heart to reach out for the Robinsons. Respect. I look forward to whatever you next feel like sharing.

Wow! Thanks a bunch, Elke, for all the support! Hoping to have a new Mango tomorrow.
