I urge all purchasers of natural peanut butter to store it upside down both before and after opening it. This tip has enriched my life immeasurably! The oil works its way into the peanut butter and first stirring is much easier. The consistency is maintained for a long time.

Though I have hung up my pen, I wanted to take the opportunity to say three things:

(1) Thanks to the entire staff at Storiesspace for the great work that they do.

(2) Good luck, Sherzahd, though I don’t think that you’ll need it. My encounters with you have left no doubt in my mind that your energy and talent will propel Storiesspace to new heights.

(3) Please, please, please, everyone. Store your natural peanut butter upside down. It will enhance your peanut butter experience immeasurably.

Two Blankets and a Stick

Well, I wrote the followin’ song for my cousin as a Christmas gift. She got kinda mad at me when I told her instead a payin’ the cemetery folk to put blankets on her mom and daddy’s grave to make ‘em easier to find in the snow, we could just drive big sticks into the ground. She’s gonna be buried with them, and she worried ‘bout how I might tend her grave if she went first. So I wrote...

Recommended Read The Last Beginning

“This is like a Rod Serling Twilight Zone episode!” he observed. “Four of us locked in a room, and none of us know how we got here!” “And none of us seem that concerned about it!” the photographer noted. “Mind if I get some photos of everyone with my Exakta 66?” He stood up and started looking for the best vantage point in the room. The short, portly conductor was already pacing around,...

An Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Christmas

Dedicated to my precious cousin, an IBS sufferer, without whom I would never have the keen appreciation that I do for my own regularity. ***An IBS Christmas*** It probably does seem myopic juxtaposing this bad topic with icons of Christmas cheer and joy. But I am not a boorish bloke and IBS is not a joke. I wish to raise awareness, not annoy. When peristaltic ebbs and flows that do...

My Christmas Stocking

All last year you griped and moaned while I would hide or just get stoned to make it through your constant shrill henpecking. Then you finally sneaked away the morning after Christmas day and drained the funds we had in our joint checking. After you had packed your junk and ran away with that young punk I was awash with conflicting emotions. Sometimes I longed for your return sometimes...

The Robin Hood of Christmas

A man I knew of quite strange mind would rob the disabled and blind but then give to the very sick and needy. People thinking he was mad would ask “How can you do so bad?” He’d say ”It’s easy they can’t chase or see me.” And he’d go on with some disdain to justify and thus explain how all his actions were in fact quite good. His victims in the handicapped niche were in...

A Scathing Reply to Dirty Martini’s 'The Conning of America'

How sad the best that we can do is picking these pathetic two for President of our United States. One a bozo quite uncouth the other cannot tell the truth A sad choice to have on our voting plates! Yes it’s fun to laugh and dump all over clownish Donald Trump who won’t release a single tax return. A cad who smiles and offers scotch then grabs a woman by the crotch? It...

The Ghost of Christmas Sideways

The apparition was angry. “Stop saying that! I am not the Ghost of Christmases Past! I am the Ghost of Christmas Sideways! I show you how past Christmases and the rest of your life might have been different…if only you had been standing ten feet to the left!” “All I said was that you’re kind of like the Ghost of Christmases Past with a bit of a twist. What’s so bad about that? What’s the...

The Christmas Visit

“You cannot be me from the future!” I shouted. “That is just not possible! Besides… you’re old and ugly!” “Deal with it!” the old man replied. “I am future you! And I can prove it.” “How?” “By telling you things that only you could know,” he said. I took another hit of gin from my hip flask and stared at the seventy-something guy standing in front of me. If this was me forty years...

Say “No!” to Toys for Tots….”Yes” to Toys for Tottlers!

To heck with “Toys for Tots!” Instead think “Toys for Tottlers!” Because tottlers (seniors who walk unsteadily and just tottle along for whatever the reason) are much needier than kids. Their friends have all died or are so out of it that they may as well be ornaments dangling on a tree. So the tottler frequently faces Christmas alone. Don’t buy a teddy bear and put it in some box at a...

Santapedia: The Story of Guido (a.k.a. Prancer)

My most vivid memory of my evening with Prancer is not his admission that he was a murderer. Though unnerving it was consistent with his obvious paranoia. The most vivid memories are of what happened when I committed the faux pas of offering Prancer chopsticks with his General Tso’s chicken. Prancer was volatile. He could be aggressive one moment, but gentle and submissive the next. How I...

As the last grains of sand dwindle from the 2014 hourglass,
we ready ourselves to mark the end of another year.
Turning it over, the hourglass will once more be full, starting another year.
As we welcome in 2015 may you be blessed with peace,
good health and your heart over full with love.
