Penpals – Special January 30, 2023


[Febenary 8th or 9th, I’m not sure which: Originally intended for late January. Got set aside for one reason or another. Probably good reasons, but I don’t remember. Cleaning electron house. Getting ready to knuckle down, buckle down, hit it, hit it, hit it!]

Gotta love a month with thirty-one days

Franz!  Followers!  Faithful correspondents!  All you other cretins out there, [consult with a medical professional [[or a shaman, your choice]] for possible thyroid problems] pay attention, too.


Extending spwilcenwrites’ warranty, I do hereby affirm [that is something of a guarantee]: if you comment on a post [operative – a spwilcenwrites’ post], ahem, [pat, pan, or indifferent] I will make time to respond to your comments.  [Requisite: you actually, um, ah, comment.]  That in addition to appreciating your effort. We’ll become something of penpals.  That, Democrat and Republican franz, is how we learn. [Someone told me Independents are un-school-able. We disagree, which is par for the course, eh?]

Of course, that presupposes an open mind

I have one.  Do you?  Amazon may have some if you don’t.  Don’t skimp.  Get a good one. Don’t get one used or refurbished [factory reconditioned: the Maker has not done well with original equipment; repair facilities cannot hope to do any better].

I’m a writer

Or fancy myself so. And, nearing the call of ticket-taker for the last ride, genuinely desire to learn as much as I can before I board that midnight express. [Not reading material per se, but ideas and philosophies to ponder on the eternal journey.]

I’m on my second industrial strength Martini

So I’m wrapping this before festering thoughts erupt into a non-happy-happy rant.

To recapitulate

Comment, you silly fools.  If you think a post offensive, tell me. If you disagree, ball-up [if you declare “female,” get some Big Girl Panties, if binary-unspecific, may a god somewhere help you] and say so.  I’ll respond.  We can take turns driving each other insane [pissing each other off]; lookit: an opportunity to have something to look forward to [how dare he?] in your otherwise vanilla day.

Of course, I have ulterior motives

[Snicker.]  I’ll see where you’re from and what jerks your chain. Audience demographics. With only the slightest assist from a sub-par WierdPrest. [Another snicker. Or is that a “Buh-wha-ha-ha!”?].

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.

  1. Thanks for dropping by, Sir Balladman! Entering a period of quiescence to try to close a couple of serious efforts. Not to worry in the case of radio silence. It’s sad for me that my blog cannot be more like those “serious” efforts, nut alas, such is the case. Good to hear from ya. Got one coming up tomorrow I think that I think you’ll pretty much agree with. Catch you later, Astute Sir.
