A Little Something For Randal -or- Glaucus Revisited

I'm not sure at what point in my life I decided that I was okay with making an ass of myself, but I am fairly certain that it was early on. Here is a fine example. My buddy, Franklinton, has often stated that while my stories are wonderful, they really lack the punch if I don't read them myself. So I have reproduced one on video. As I knotted a bed sheet and slung it over my shoulder to settle in in front of the camera, Flannery laughed. "What?" I objected. "It's just funny how far you will go for your art," she snickered.

I was a little hurt, but after some thought, I realized she was right. I was going out of my way to make my little tale funny and if that involved wearing a bed sheet, so be it. I tried to straighten my hat hair and made sure that my nipples didn't show, and then moved blithely on.

Without further ado, here is The Singular Tale Of Glaucus, in two parts:

  2. Damn fine effort Doc. I usually can't andle audio books. I guess that is because I have always found my best stories by reading them at my pace, nt some guy reciting them. But Iliked this. You did a bang up job.

    Maybe it was because I had already read the stories a while back when you first posted it.

  3. Doc, you must have really hammered those demons, there's not a scratch on you. :-)

    Apologies for above, there were some bad spelling mistakes. My fingers don't type as fast as my brain works which is infuriating at times.

    Not got time to fully watch them at the mo (Check out my last couple of posts: I'm in Manchester for my Dad's 70th) Will check them out when I get back home. Good to see you back my friend.

    Regards, David

  4. I fully expected Harry Hamlin and Burgess Meredith to make an appearance. You sir, are nuts, in the most complimentary way.

  5. ^And don't forget the mechanical owl!

    Yes, nuts. You are.
