Tail of Vengeance


May 29th, 2014 Posted 8:09 am

“I understand President Obama will be announcing this later today,” Admin says, “but is is true that the new e-short story, coming July 8, will no longer be called The Teitelbaum Divorce?”

“Correct,” says Spence. “The new title is Tail of Vengeance.”

“And the reason?”

“It’s all part of the fun of publishing.”

“There is a lot of fun in it, isn’t there?”

“For the willing.”

State Of The Union (Revised)


January 26th, 2011 Posted 8:32 am

Bernie and I are out on the patio, the moon low in the sky.

“Did you know the moon stabilizes the earth’s axis?” Bernie says.

I did not. And there are lots of other things about that question I don’t get either; I don’t even know where to start.

“It’s actually possible that without the moon things on earth could have been so chaotic that life wouldn’t have evolved.”

So nice to listen to Bernie at times likes this, the words flowing gently by. He sips his bourbon. I chew on a flip-flop.

“The president says it’s our Sputnik moment. So why aren’t we going to the moon? Or to Mars? Don’t humans need adventure to be their full selves?”

Not sure about humans, but I sure need adventure, and lots. I bark at the moon. When do we start?

Here’s to brighter days for Macy’s Mom.

Everything Explained


December 11th, 2010 Posted 8:58 am

“Please explain America to me,” says Mr. Singh.

We’re at his pawn shop, but this time – a real first – we’re not pawning Bernie’s grandfather’s watch, our most valuable possession. In fact, we’re not pawning anything. Instead we’re searching for a bauble, whatever that is, for Suzie. Lamb curry’s cooking somewhere out back, making it real hard to concentrate.

“Explain America?” Bernie says.

“Do not get me wrong, Bernie,” says Mr. Singh. So much fun, listening to how he talks. “Coming here was the best move of my life. But sometimes it’s a bit confusing. For example, is Mr. Clinton back to being the president again?”

“Huh?” says Bernie.

“What is the explanation for this press conference yesterday?” says Mr. Singh. “Did not Mr. Obama turn over the reins?”

Bernie laughs, claps Mr. Singh on the back. Mr. Singh’s a soft little guy, lurches a bit. “Here’s the thing,” Bernie says. “There are no reins, so just enjoy the ride.”

“What a joker you are, Bernie! Here is a ruby ring for a very attractive price.”

Note from Spence: the blog may be experiencing some sort of technical difficulty at this time. We’ll try to fix it ASAP.
