About Dreamcatcher


I came to the blue site and sister site in 2009. I was more active early on but got distracted by life in general. I am retired now and have more time on my hands so it is my intention to energize my mojo and try writing again.

I have a short but amazing list of friends and I am grateful for their kindness to an old man. Hopefully, they won't mind me stalking them now and then for ideas.

Topic: Inspirations, the Stories Space Coffee House
Posted: 16 Jun 2021 12:55

I don't usually chit-chat but when you bring up baseball I need to step up and educate the masses. If you don't have these five movies as favorites, then you know nothing about baseball.

The Natural
Major League
For the Love of the Game
Field of Dreams
Bull Durham

BTW... Moneyball was entertaining but it was based on real characters and made asshats look like heroes and dedicated baseball people look like fools.

Other than that, a tip of my cup to all.

Topic: Update re plans to keep the site going
Posted: 16 Jun 2021 11:18

This is the best possible news under the circumstances. Having been on SS for 10+ years it is comforting to know that my dusty old stories still have a home. I don't have many friends on here, but the ones I still have are appreciated for their tolerance and cherished for their kindness.

I know the decision to hang on or let go of SS was a critical choice for Nicola, and I'm glad she came down on the side of maintaining the site. As well, those of you who worked behind the scene (primarily Scott) to find ways of keeping SS going are sincerely appreciated.

Needless to say, the revised site may or may not have some changes and/or new requirements and it will still need our support in the form of participation by members.

Good news.

Topic: Old As Dirt Quiz
Posted: 06 Jun 2021 14:41

I had this quiz on SS several years ago and thought maybe new members would like a try.

Count all the ones that you remember not the ones you were told about. Ratings at the bottom.

1. Blackjack chewing gum
2. Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
3. Candy cigarettes
4. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles
5. Coffee shops or diners with tableside jukeboxes
6. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers
7. Party lines on the telephone
8. Newsreels before the movie
9. P.F. Flyers
10. Butch wax
11. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning. (there were only 3 channels... if you were fortunate)
12. Peashooters
13. Howdy Doody
14. 45 RPM records
15. S&H green stamps
16. Hi-fi's
17. Metal ice trays with lever
18. Mimeograph paper
19. Blue flashbulb
20. Packards
21. Roller skate keys
22. Cork popguns
23. Drive-ins
24. Studebakers
25. Wash tub wringers

If you remember 0-5 = You're still young
If you remember 6-10 = You are getting older
If you remember 11-15 = Don't tell your age,
If you remember 16-25 = You're older than dirt!

I might be older than dirt but those memories are some of the best parts of my life.

I had 18!

Meredith (James) added a few more, but I do not know how to change the scoring.

26. 8-track tape players
27. Under the dash Record players
28. Duck tail haircuts
29. Poodle Skirts
30. Cloverine salve ointment
31. Henry J cars
32. Sock hop dances
33. Outhouses
34. Redball Jets
35. Shoe repair shops
36. Alleys behind houses
37. Waiting for a Radio to Warm-up
38. Cherry Cokes that had real bits of cherries in them
39. Black Cow floats
40. Car hops

I remember all 40. I'm not only older than dirt, I'm older than the galaxy.

You left out:

41. Flat top haircuts
42. Butch wax
43. Pocket combs
44. Brylcream
45. Burma Shave road signs
46. Rolled up shirt sleeves
47. Transistor AM/FM radios
48. Wooden screen doors with long springs that would slam it shut
49. Dutch doors
50. TV Guides

Congratulations, Larry. You have a legacy of quality endeavors that much like Babe Ruth, the record will be a lasting one, and unlikely to be matched.

Granted. It's a mile high in the air and now you must reel it in... with your feet.

I wish I was 16 again.

In my shot glass
A drop or two is all that will fit
I wish it was full of M & M's, but alas
Someone keeps pouring more spirits

Seasoned by the sow
Pork rinds crackling hot
RC Cola would taste good right now
But water is all I got

Posted: 29 Mar 2021 11:44

Granted. Moment passed. She's gone now.

I wish I owned a string of kissing booths and I was the only employee.

I don’t know when I lost her. She held on as long as she could. I was aloof. Careless. I loved her. I just never showed her how much. Now I can’t. She has flown away forever. I saw caterpillars. She saw butterflies....

I once bought a bag of chips A big ol’ bag all bright and yellow I opened the bag with a pair of snips So little inside I was one unhappy fellow.   I saw a pie I really wanted A nice big box to hold it all I ripped it open completely undaunted And found a pie so pathetically small.   I ordered a tool from an online shop It took forever to come in the mail What I got made my jaw drop...

Giving Up

I don’t see colors anymore. Everything is black or grey. I don’t hear music or laughter as before. There is no difference between night or day.   The air I breathe Seems heavy and thick. And now I believe It was all just a trick.   They held the carrot just out of reach. Always running and never gaining. Sculptures washed away in the sandy beach. Endless winters constantly raining....

Cedar Boxes

Two dogs. A rabbit. Four cats. Two parakeets. Nine cedar boxes filled with the life’s ashes of our fur and feathered family for over the last 40+ years. We are down to just one now. Gimley the cat came to us some seven years ago. He was a feral cat who was surprisingly human-friendly. We fed and watered him but it was obvious he was the neighborhood cat that knew which families would give...

A Tribute To Adagio

Making wine from oysters A mop bucket stands unused While muffins burn in the oven Swingsets rust in the rain.   Yet carpet covers hardwood As the moon serenades toads Beyond the furthest galaxy Three-eyed gargoyles play checkers.   A Dodge is missing a wheel Whilst hummingbirds seek pollen and poo The wind knocks over a For Sale sign Sirens howl as dogs reply.   My heart...

I have been here before Many times more A different face In a different place.   As each vessel dies Amidst loved one’s cries The spirit rises I return in guises.   Plato, Nero, Rembrandt and Bach Each return gives new paths to walk Embodied within A new life and new skin.   Creating a future from the past Lessons learned from knowledge amassed Life begets life endlessly driven...

The worst word in golf. I know, it’s part of the etiquette of the game, but it’s the part we all hate to shout or hear. It’s one of those things in the arsenal of golf, like mulligans and do-overs and foot wedges. Once the dreaded “Fore!” has been uttered, golfers all over the course scramble for trees or wrap their arms around their heads and do the “ants-in-the-pants-dance” like they...

This Day and Age

I remember attic fans in the summer and radiators in the winter and if you backed into it trying to get warm, you burnt your ass. I remember linoleum floors. Stovetop percolators. Gas stoves you had to light with wooden matches. I remember glass bottles of milk with cardboard stoppers on the porch. Wall phones with 15-foot cords hanging in the kitchen. Screen doors with long springs...

The Flower And The Bee

I wake I walk I dream I hurt I eat Alone. Friends talk. Watching my shuffle. Counting the days, Till my fog lifts. Heart bleeds anew. As I shuffle alone. I wake. I eat. Still alone.    ...
