Here's a "collection" of stories that reflect that with some of my own "Hometown" reminiscences...
I hope you enjoy them and have a great 4th of July!

"Saved by the Bell "
About once every month or so, a couple of Church Ladies ring my doorbell to say hello, hand me a couple of their latest publications, and attempt to save my misbegotten soul.
Oh, and they come to laugh, because saving souls can be a bit of a downer most of the time.

"Jaunting in July"
Well, another 4th of July is in the books, as soggy as it was around these parts—hopefully not yours—and we finally got see our fireworks on the 5th since they were cancelled on the 4th when the rain doused the only match they had to light them…apparently....

First beach days have a bit of a learning curve thing attached to them.
You wouldn’t think it was a big deal, but it’s been about 8 months, so things have to be re-learned....
Like remembering to put on your bathing suit....

- The Freelance Retortpresent
My passion these days is writing silly stories for “The Freelance Retort”, the humor website I began in May of 2011 when the world was supposed to come to an end. It didn’t and now I’m stuck writing these things 2 or 3 times a week. My passion before that was chocolate ice cream.
When I’m not doing this, I’m a freelance, corporate writer/director/ producer, which means—besides the many slashes—I create everything from promotional, instructional and training videos to interactive on line presentations for various corporation and health care companies. In that sense I guess you could say that I’m a “professional writer” since I do get paid to write, work from home and have lots of free time to myself. However, most of my friends and neighbors think I’m retired. Naturally, being a freelance writer who deals with the sometimes insanity of the corporate world from the safety of the creative fringe, my views will more often than not be tinged with cynicism, sarcasm and a fair share of self-deprecation. I hope you enjoy them in the spirit in which they are intended….
