Topic: Awarding the DirtyMartini badge.
Posted: 16 Mar 2018 10:53

I've not been around as much as I had hoped to be after having surgery last month, but I still make it here every few days at least!

We're long overdue for another contest. I have an idea for one in mind, and an homage to Alan figures into it. However, I didn't realize we had the DirtyMartini badge on this site. Cool!

Thanks for all your work, Maggie. I'm so glad you're better. Surgery is never fun. Happy Birthday, Alan!

Dinner Time

"Shut up and eat it." We all laughed. It was the last family gathering, And it was still funny. After all these years. Still funny. It could easily be bitter.  But no. No. We all understood the reasons behind the words. As do our kids today.  They have heard the same words growing up and still understand. More and more each day. To be wondering where the money will come from. To feed...

What Is It Good For

He is such a loving man. It may be a good thing to talk about it. Who really knows. Only the ones still not at peace can say for sure. But he never talked about it. Service for a lifetime. A career. Continuing long after the fighting was over.  He gave the silver star to his mother. She was proud to have it. He's not sure where others are right now. He had two sons. One served for a...

Recommended Read Going Steady

Old enough to drive. Old enough to own a car. Old enough to go steady. The first Saturday after Jake Terwilliger turned sixteen he went to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get his license. He struggled a little with the written test, but he passed the driving part with no problems. It was a sunny spring day in the Ozarks. They drove his family's old '52 Ford during the test.

Housing Shortage

One couple arrived at the residence. They hoped to find a perfect place to raise a family. It wasn't to be. Another couple had been quicker.

The World Has Bigger Problems

Tule reeds covered marshy backwaters. They searched for science project specimens. The Colorado River was chilly, but spring sun warmed these waters. They waded waist deep in jeans. Denim dries quickly. Tom's fair skin was pale after the desert winter spell. Booker's deep brown skin glistened where droplets had fallen. Soon they donned their white t-shirts, sneakers, and got to Tom's house....

You And I Must Recall

You and I must recall How we swayed in the Spring on the Champs-Élysees How we whirled all about in a Viennese waltz How we skipped around Rome, and we spun near the old Spanish Steps You and I must recall In our thoughts and our dreams When we danced close together through life You and I must recall And remember it all As it might really happen again When we touched and...

A Murder on the River Thames

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900 *****  "The Queen is Dead! Long Live the King!" What more important change than the death of a sovereign. At least, for the nation. Perhaps not for individuals. The end of the Victorian Age. The beginning of the Edwardian period. Would this country continue to be successfully powerful, or would...

Recommended Read Honky Tonk Bar

"We can dance if we want to." So that's what they did. They drove about an hour away to the nearest honky tonk. The music was mostly Texas two-step and foxtrot but the band got a little funky at times trying new things. They danced that night, having fun and enjoying each other's company. It finally came, a magic moment, when they were dancing and the crowd moved back. Formed a...

Millionaire of Love

"Who am I but a millionaire of love." That is what I whisper to my darling one In her sleep I gently breathe her essence in and smile Knowing we must never part in this life No, not yet It seems I can soar aloft in her eyes Flying so high I wake the very clouds Up above My little dove the constant star of love She twinkles so brightly smiling with joy In her heart True...

Stories Coauthored By LarryFNigh


Strong heart is beating in a harmony, Each movement set angelically with pride.   So subtle that it matches musically, To center stage exquisite form does glide On pointe, on tiptoe, swaying with the tune The wind caresses, gently singing free. So calm her soul, like summer days in June But every step is like a storm tossed sea Behind sweet lips and eyes, typhoons may hide, With calmness...
