“I believe some readers who download A Cat Was Involved or The Iggy Chronicles, Volume 1 think they’re getting a novel,” Spence says.

“But doesn’t it say right on them that  they’re short stories?” Admin says. “And isn’t the price – 99 cents – a dead giveaway?”

“Nevertheless – a gentle reminder that they are short stories, somewhere between 7500 and 10500 words as I recall.”


Welcome Sophie.

    Goood morning, everyone! Short stories are our friends. Aren’t they what we learned to read with? AND isn’t today something about conjuers?

    Let’s have a super scintillating, sparkling Saturday!

  2. B. Stover

    I enjoyed both short stories and I’m enjoying “Sound.” Thank you Spence.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning. The rain has finally ended. Hurray!
    Bee, how far along are you?

    Whoa, OH: When mom was a younger woman, that phrase had to do with pregnancy, not OFA’s book!

    Good morning all. Anyone who follows Spence’s writing even a little bit should know that those are both short stories! Gee whiz!

    Gloomy and cloudy here today in northern Illinois.

    The younger generation shares everything on F.B. Jack got a hair cut yesterday at 2:00. By 3:00 mama had posted 6 pictures of it, and by 4:00 about 30 of her friends had commented! Amazing!

    This morning there are over 50 comments on Jack’s hair cut. How is that even possible!

    Off to do some yard stuff before rain comes in. BBL

    Howlers: I’m to chapter twenty-five. (Chapter twenty-four was excellent.)

    I’ve never had sweet potato pie. I assume that it’s similar to pumpkin pie.

    Staff: That poem was about her dog Percy, named after the Romantic poet Shelley.

    HOH: I think the taco cat thing is neat.

  10. B. Stover
    9:58 am on October 12th, 2013

    By the way, the “taco cat” thing is a palindrome.

  11. O'Howlers
    10:09 am on October 12th, 2013

    HOH,ha ha! Glad Bee didn’t take it that way.
    Chapter 24 was good, especially the end.

    B.Stover, Thanks for the information about Mary Oliver’s poetry. Her book sounds enticing.

    I make half sweet potato and half pumpkin pie. Sweet potato pie is much richer in flavor than pumpkin. I heard an interview on NPR one Thanksgiving a few years ago and they were talking to people about which was their favorite. Among people who had tasted both, Sweet Potato was the winner. There is a pretty strong correlation between race and pumpkin or sweet potato pie being eaten. I started making mine because one Thanksgiving I had only one can of pumpkin and I needed two. There was a can of sweet potato’s in a dry pack in the cupboard. The rest is history.
    Today it is impossible to find dry pack sweet potatoes. All I can find are potatoes in a syrup pack. Drat it all. I have to bake my own sweet potatoes for the pie.

  13. Tupper and Gilly
    10:40 am on October 12th, 2013

    Oh Bee – you must try a sweet potato pie. The consistency is similar to a pumpkin pie, but creamier. It’s a pie that can be a side dish, a dessert or a breakfast treat. It is sweeter than pumpkin, and rich with the wonderful flavor of the potato itself instead of the cinnamon, clove and nutmeg of pumpkin pie.
    Maybe you could experiment and perfect your recipe before the dreaded (shudder) World Series.

  14. O'Howlers
    10:45 am on October 12th, 2013

    We love sweet potato pie. Pumpkin pie? Only Pop loves that.

  15. Herd of Hounds
    10:54 am on October 12th, 2013

    Mom’s pumpkin pie has more spices than you can imagine…it is interseting.

  16. Barb & Maggie
    11:03 am on October 12th, 2013

    Sweet potatoes are so good for you. Barb wraps them in foil with a little olive oil on top and bakes on the grill. Then she tops with butter and sour cream, just like a regular baked potato. So much better! A few chopped chives make it look really festive.

    BTW, did you know potatoes are one of the Dirty Dozen? That is a list of the 12 veggies and fruits that you should buy organic (or grow your own) whenever possible. Evidently, since potatoes grow underground, they absorb more chemicals from the soil.

    Pie!…Are we talking pie or baseball?…snort!…Someone is feeling stuffed up and grumpy this morning. So that means she is going to work on a complicated project to take her mind off her misery…heh!heh!

    Rio: Has your friend ever used Claritin D? It has to be the D (which stands for “decongestion”) and not the regular Claritin. You can’t buy it directly off the shelf but have to sign for it and show your driver’s license. I get it at the pharmacy at KMart but you don’t need a doctor’s prescription. I think I’ve also found it at drug stores.

    I will definitely have to try sweet potato pie.

  20. B. Stover
    11:44 am on October 12th, 2013

    Rio: I posted a comment that is awaiting moderation. I’m going to send you an email message–it’s about something to help allergies.

    I will definitely have to try sweet potato pie.

  21. dawson
    11:59 am on October 12th, 2013

    Spence: Those that thought they were getting a novel must’ve been reading every third word. I love short stories.

    Alice Munro was a short story writer.

    Barb and Maggie: What are the other 11 of the dirty dozen?

    Rio: Echinacea! Or airborne, if you insist.

    Another sunny day.

  22. Wose
    12:06 pm on October 12th, 2013


    Grizz loves both pumpkin and sweet potato pie! I am a cherry pie kind girl myself.

    Melanie: Deep breath and concentrate on kicking that nasty cancer way out to the curb. How dare it come to live in your body.

    RIO! Since there is pie and baseball talk any predictions on who will win the World Series?

    Lovely day here in Westchester! Hope everyone enjoys their Saturday!

  23. dawson
    12:35 pm on October 12th, 2013

    I wonder if Bernie would like to place a little wager on the Detroit Tigers versus Boston Red Sox series coming up.

  24. Siber-H
    12:48 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Those two short stories are a steal at 99 cents.
    I agree with Barb…if people don’t know those are short stories, well, sigh.

    Stover? Could you please send my mom whatever you are sending Rio about allergies? Mom, the non-scientist, thinks her allergy problem is worse this year because of all the extra rain we had right before the official beginning of Fall.

  25. Tupper and Gilly
    12:48 pm on October 12th, 2013

    We are picking the Dallas Cowboys for the World Series.

    Or the Toronto Maple Leafs. ( and why are they not the Maple LEAVES?)

    Zoë’s Cake is beautiful!

    I love all kinds of pie!

    Need a nap . . .

    Don’t take the World Serious!
    Anything that can be read is GOOD.
    Pie is our friend (the life of pie?)
    NO..stuffing or grumping or splorting or…….

  28. B. Stover
    1:32 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Siber-H: I’ve sent you an email message.

    Rio: I forgot to say that I use the twelve hour kind rather than the twenty-four hour version. One tablet seems to last twenty-four hours for me.

  29. B. Stover
    1:32 pm on October 12th, 2013

    I’m testing something for moderation: drug store.

  30. B. Stover
    1:35 pm on October 12th, 2013

    “Drug store” was not the problem.

    T&G are cracking me up again.

  31. Herd of Hounds
    1:43 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Dawson: Detroit Tigers….was Magnum an idol? Was for me. His folks lives around the corner a million years ago.

  32. Siber-H
    2:02 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Stover, Thank you. We got your SDD and will try it. Mom says she has never tried any of the stuff that one has to sign for.
    Benadryl does work for her but it puts her out like a light and it takes that light a long time to come back on.

  33. dawson
    2:05 pm on October 12th, 2013

    HOH: No. What is the connection ‘tween the Tigers and Magnum?

    T&G: That is a good question re: Maple Leafs. I don’t know the answer.

  34. B. Stover
    2:14 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Siber-H: This product will not make your mom sleepy.

    Maple Leafs: Each hockey player is a leaf and the name refers to all of them? Have to see if I can find out why the “f” becomes “v”….”loaf” becomes “loaves” for example.

  35. dawson
    2:16 pm on October 12th, 2013

    I haven’t attempted a link in ages:

    Uh…that is not the link I wanted.

  36. dawson
    2:23 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Interesting stuff, some of it about leaves.

  37. Barb & Maggie
    2:23 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Dawson, Here is the Dirty Dozen list. These are fruits and veggies that contain the most pesticides according to the EPA and EWG.
    Peppers, hot
    Peppers, sweet bell
    Cherry tomatoes

  38. Tupper and Gilly
    2:27 pm on October 12th, 2013

    If Maple leaves for the Beech
    Will Oak Pine?

  39. B. Stover
    2:34 pm on October 12th, 2013

    If a noun ends in “f” or “fe” the “f” is replaced by a “v” to make it plural: life/lives; loaf/loaves; leaf/leaves. (Since it’s English there are exceptions: dwarf, roof.) But I thought of something interesting: the verb form does not do this.

    “He loafs around all day in his pjs.”

    “He leafs through the book one page at a time.”

  40. Happy Melanie
    2:37 pm on October 12th, 2013

    HRH B, please let me know aboit the allergy stuff.

    And now for something completely different . . Wish I knew who took it.

    The best double for Samuel L . Jackson

  41. dawson
    2:38 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Thanks Barb, I did look that up. Now I wonder if water washes off pesticides? Or soap and water? I will google it.

    The man in this house is determined to take me to the local fast food place for lunch so he can take my picture with the rootbeer bear. (Perhaps frying potatoes removes pesticides.) Personally, I think this man has entered his second childhood.

  42. B. Stover
    2:47 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Melanie: I’ve sent the info to your gmail address.

  43. dawson
    2:52 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Melanie: That dog really does look like Samuel L. Jackson.

  44. Barb & Maggie
    2:54 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Dawson, We just read that washing removes some of the pesticides, but about 67% remains. Not sure how much is removed by peeling.

    Barb got the rest of the mulch spread, and now we have had a nice rain. The landscaper calls the mulch “moo-ulch”.

  45. Barb & Maggie
    2:56 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Melanie, funny one. Never realized how much Samuel Jackson resembles a Boxer with glasses and a beret.

    Time for a nappy….

  46. Herd of Hounds

    Medicine!….My friend swears she does not have a cold, but she took some cold medicine anyway to help the congestion….sniff!…That helped, so she took some more and was able to work on a project for about 3 hours straight with no coughing or sneezing….heh!….She has not had a cold in so long maybe she forgot what they feel like…snuffle!….She says it is allergies and that’s that….grunt!

  50. Barb & Maggie

    Barb is heading to the library to pick up Bone Yard, a Raine Stockton book. She found out that they have the new Anne Hillerman book, Spider Woman, and has requested a hold on it. She is 3rd on the waiting list.

    Siber, have you read it yet?

  51. Riö - The Evil Pug
    4:06 pm on October 12th, 2013

    World-Series!….I’m thinking it will be the Dodgers vs Red Sox….grunt!

    The Giant picked up my Lady last night at the airport. They did recognize each other even after all this time. My Lady’s sinus infection is really bothering her teeth and her stomach. The Giant bought her a frozen yogurt at the airport. That made her happy. I am sure she was also happy that I took such good care of our side of the bed while she was away.

    We here have been talking and we have decided one thing: DOWN WITH CANCER. Case closed.

  53. Siber-H
    4:20 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Barb, Mom has not read the Anne Hillerman book yet. IMHO Mom is deep down afraid it won’t measure up to Tony’s books. Without admitting it, I think she is waiting on you or TeddyRR’s dad to read it first.
    umm How long will you have to wait to borrow it from your library?

    I am thinking the some thing Rio is about the World Series.

  54. Siber-H
    4:26 pm on October 12th, 2013

    I just re-read every word of Barb’s post instead of every other word. She is third on the waiting list for the Hillerman book. That shouldn’t take too long.

  55. Happy Melanie
    4:36 pm on October 12th, 2013


    The three of them are well slobbered, and have gone out to explore the river. The Pack, Zoë and I are resting for when they get back.

    Tonight’s dinner is crockpot chicken with carrots and potatos (both grown on a farm near here) with peas.

    Gah!…Someone here finally took the time to put in new cartridges in my printer…sniff!….Finally! Finally! Finally!….While she was doing it she found a letter from BluKat…heh!

    Blu-Kat!…Remember that article you sent about Breaking Bad? Well, we finally got around to reading it. Did not want to know anything about the ending at the time you sent it to us, so she hid it and luckily found it again today….snort!

    Siber, The book can be checked out for two weeks, with no renewals if there is a waiting list. It is currently out, then 2 people in front of us, so it should be in the 4-5 week range, but could be less.

    Melanie’s dinner sounds delish!

    I’ve been told that I got so excited that I splorted when I visited CHobbit. I don’t recall splorting, but I do recall getting very excited. I love that little Hobbit that I can’t help but get excited.

  66. Riö - The Evil Pug
    6:49 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Bellie!….You and I can never be in the same room together. What with you splorting and me well, being me, it could get noxious….sniff!

  67. Belle Starr

    Rio: We just need proper ventilation.

  68. Belle Starr
    7:02 pm on October 12th, 2013

    When the Giant told my Two-legged about me splorting at CHobbit’s house, my Two-legged said, “Oh, no. Was she upset?” Of course I wasn’t upset—I felt better almost immediately. Chet knows what I mean.

  69. Riö - The Evil Pug
    7:04 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Sammie!…heh!heh!…I feel your pain, but at least we here got the Broncos this year…snort!…Beau is reminding me that they are “His” team…grump!

    I thought Mickey Mantle wore #7 on his uniform.

    SiberH!…You are still up!….heh!…It is only 7:42pm here, but I thought you were long gone…snort!….I think Rose meant to say they wear numbers on their jerseys, but not their names because true fans know the names of the numbers and do not need to see them SPELLED OUT…grunt!…Dumb. Because what about when the play-offs happen and the rest of the world gets to watch them play? “Who the hell is that up to bat? I dunno, there is no name on his jersey…burp!”…heh!heh!

    Thought for the night. Does Rose have to stop and smell the roses, because a certain Pug’s emails are kat poop smelling?

    Riö, delivered message. “Okkkaaayyy, thanks, I think.” Was the response.

    Dinner was great. We watched the second episode of Sleepy Hollow. Still not sure if I will continue to watch.

    Tomorrow is celebration day! Woo Hoo! We will be down two in the family count. My SinL had the flu shot and the pneumonia shot the same day.ended up in the ER with a temp of 103 and splorting. She still has a temp of 101.

    I have had no trouble with the flu shot. I don’t think I’ll get the other.

    SnowBella, get yourself to a doctor!

    RIO! The roses have been smelled, SDD has been read and responded to.

    Off to bed. Good night, sleep tight.

    G’Day, Liz .

    Belle Starr : You know you are my VBFF. Tummies to you.

    Shots!…My friend had her flu shot and she felt like crap for about a week afterwards…sniff!…That has never happened before. So beware of the Shot!…snort!

    Rio, My body is still up but the brain is fading fast.

    Mom won’t let a dog have more than once type of vaccination at a time. We didn’t know they would give humans the flu shot and pneumonia shot at the same time.

  107. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:13 pm on October 12th, 2013

    SiberH!…Yep! My friend has gotten the flu and the P. shot at the same time before and has had no problems in the past…sniff!….After her reaction over the flu shot this year I doubt she will ever do that again..grunt!.. It’s bad enough having allergies that want to kill her off…sniff!

  108. Siber-H
    10:19 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Rio, Mom hasn’t gotten her flu shot yet. You are scaring her.
    Are you sure your friend does not have a sinus infection that began with allergies? We are seeing a lot of that here.

    Rebecca, Go to the doctor!

  109. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:25 pm on October 12th, 2013

    SiberH!…She is sure….heh!…But thanks for askin’. Her problem is her lungs and breathing. Sometimes it’s hard – lots of coughing and snot…gah!…Fall is tough. Trees and their leaves seem to attack her respiratory system….gasp!

  110. Riö - The Evil Pug
    10:28 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Later!….Someone here will probably want to live in New Mexico or Alaska (no leafy trees)…heh!heh!…But this will be later after much ado. …grunt!

  111. Siber-H
    10:30 pm on October 12th, 2013

    yeah, My mom’s allergies are worse in the Fall, but it is sneezing, snot, and stuff…not coughing. Evergreens do their thing in the Fall, but who knows if they cause these problems.

    WOW!…Detroit’s Sanchez keeps Boston from scoring when the bases were loaded down with those smelly Sox…heh!heh!…What a good game!

    I like Anibal Sanchez.

    11:01 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Dawson!…So why did Leland take Sanchez out of the game? No hits through six innings and he pulls him out…grunt!…Why?

    Saving Sanchez’s arm and body for the games to come?

    I am checking out now.
    Good Night All

    SiberH!…Maybe, plus he replacement is doing A-Ok so far…heh!heh!…Dunno who he is, but he was striking out the Sox…snort!…Score is still Tigers One, Sox None….chuffle!

  117. dawson
    11:38 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Rio: I think, like SiberH, they are saving Sanchez’s arm for future games.

  118. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:48 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Unbelievable!….Drama! The Red Sox’ amazing Closer keeps the wily Tigers from scoring….wheeze!…Now what will happen in the bottom of the 9th?….gasp!

  119. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:50 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Boston!….Is up to bat and they only need 2 runs to winnit!…gah!…Who is pitching for the Tigers? I do not know, but all the Red Sox fans look very chilly….heh!heh!

  120. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:55 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Announcers!…For this game are really bad compared to “our” guys…sniff!…Just my Puggish opinion…grunt!

  121. Riö - The Evil Pug
    11:58 pm on October 12th, 2013

    Hey!…Boston Finally got a Hit!…heh!heh!…Bottom of the Ninth and they get their first hit of the game…snort!…Now, things could go downhill for the Tigers if they are not very, very careful…wheeze!worry!

  122. Riö - The Evil Pug
    12:08 am on October 13th, 2013

    Tigers!….Win game ONE!….Woooooo!…heh!heh!…What a good game!…snort!
