Why indeed?

I took a detour to stop and see if Mr. Petticord would talk to me.  Even though I had lived with him for a few weeks it took the better part of two days to find his farm.  Farm doesn’t sound right.  Farms are big.  Homestead?   Squatter shack? I had to stop for directions a coupleContinue reading “Why indeed?”

RIP Stella

Stella taught me that zombies are people who are alive and well but have had their minds overthrown by magic incantation.  The look like they’re dead sometimes because it’s real bad for your health.  What most people call “zombies” are merely animated corpses.    I asked KBD if T8 had been brought back to life likeContinue reading “RIP Stella”

Magical gender neutral friendship squad

I’m going to blow your minds.  Magic is cool.  I never want to forget that. Dany came down from Iowa City.  42561 came over after a show in Saint Louis.  I was surprised but that but even more surprising Milham came over from Lafyette.  When I asked why he came out of his hidey-hole heContinue reading “Magical gender neutral friendship squad”

Plié and Relevé

Martynova did come back with a hammer.  I couldn’t go through with it.  Maybe it was because of the hammer.  Brought back bad memories.  Maybe if she had come back with a screwdriver I would have tortured a man.  I don’t like to think about that.    After I declined her off she sat on the porch smokingContinue reading “Plié and Relevé”

S-M-R-T

If anyone ever thought about magic being real most people would assume that you have to be smart to do it.  In fantasy stories wizards are old and wise.  They have old busy wisdom beards so you know.  They have to go magic school for hundreds of years.  They live in towers, the smartest kind ofContinue reading “S-M-R-T”

On to Columbus

How much does someone owe you if you save their life?  Everything.  In truth even if you save someone you can’t trade on their goodwill forever.  That’s extortion.  I saved you so you owe me.  Not cool.    Lucy floated me some money to help Andrea and Cassie get relocated.   She told me that she doesn’tContinue reading “On to Columbus”

Part 7 – Smile through your fear and sorrow (j/k that’s a terrible idea)

What Cassie can tell Grace about the ring is that it’s the wedding ring of Andrea’s sister.  You guys remember her right?  She was a police detective and she found out about magic and her husband died and she got transfer to work for a fake FBI division to keep her quiet and she hadContinue reading “Part 7 – Smile through your fear and sorrow (j/k that’s a terrible idea)”

Hard way

I’m dipped out of a loop across Georgia and Florida to swing over to Tallahassee to see Kim.  Not Killer Kelly Kim, the other one.  I tried to sneak the philosophical concept of killing and its possible justifications in casual conversation.  He saw through me.  He asked me who I wanted killed.  He likes peopleContinue reading “Hard way”

How to make decisions

I hardly ever get asked for an autograph.  Maybe I would be more often if I sold merch.  I should get some merch.  Not because I want people to ask for my autograph.  After my show last night, a guy with bushy sideburns and a denim shirt asked for my autograph.  After I signed, heContinue reading “How to make decisions”

Operation Steel Tiger Shark

It’s hard to believe.  My plans never work.  Lance and I sat in his Lincoln Navigator outside the compound and watched the cars and trucks drive away with all the guys and guns.  Lance had drones flying around that let us see the whole place.  There were a couple old timers and some kids leftContinue reading “Operation Steel Tiger Shark”
