Oldies But Goodies


Computer hardware failures this week kept me under the desk and away from the keyboard the past several days. As a result, the story scheduled for this week was not ready… sorry about that.

Below are some reader’s favorites from past years. If you’re new to the blog, these are the stories that proved most popular. If a title catches your eye, give it a read. If you’re an old-timer on the blog, select a month under the Archives section in the right hand column; there are over 70 stories here now, I hope you will find a few that are worthy of another read.

If this ol’ computer keeps chuggin’, the next story is scheduled to post on August 23rd.

Thanks to everyone for your continued interest!

    I can’t recall…have you written about the midnight shift encounter with the ident section sergeant and his staff? If not, I think it is an amazing story. — Barry

      No, Barry, I have not written that story. As a matter of fact, I hadn’t thought about it until you mentioned it. Although true, it might be too heavily negative for me to put onto the blog. What you think?
