Stray Characters

John Hudson intrigues me. Given that I’m “finished” with the Olman County series, this is a bit of a perturbing development. Nonetheless, he does. When I first set up that series, John was a nasty piece of work. He was a chip off his old man’s block, his mother’s son...

In the Middle of the Night

If you have the Billy Joel song stuck in your head after reading that post title, you’re welcome. So do I. I miss being a night owl. For most of my life, even when I was a kid, I loved staying awake until the wee hours. That’s where I found a lot of magic, where I did...

Switching Gears

Sometimes inspiration strikes and hits you so hard, you have no choice but to sit up and pay attention. Well, inspiration struck. I’m pretty sure I have an “inspiration-shaped” shoe print on my forehead. I’ve been toying with doing a somewhat silly series for a while...

Pip the Kitten

A few weeks back, I promised to tell you all the tale of Pip the Kitten. Well, what better way to start the week off than to talk about a cute, sweet, feisty, loving kitten? There is a bit of sadness to get to first though. Since October 2016, we’d only had one...

Mothman Festival – Say What??

I am ridiculously excited about this, y’all. I just found out that the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, hosts a Mothman Festival every year. Now, if you’ve followed this blog very much, you know I have a “thing” for cryptids. I’m fascinated by the lore and the...
