So here is part 2 (final) of the short story, The Curse of the Fuwa

* * * * *

“There's no such thing as curses,” Stan said stoutly as they stood together on the sidewalk three days later, after the water had gone down, looking at the wreak of their home.

The yard was a gigantic mud puddle There was no sign of the neatly trimmed grass. The stakes for the tree they'd planted when they moved in were gon...

Okay, so this is first draft of a short story.  So it is subject to change if I come up with a better idea.  Or if I just decide to add or edit it.  So don't judge me too harshly.  I'm going to post it in two or three parts this week.  Enjoy part 1.

The Curse of the Fuwa, Part 1

“Do you know a Noire Tenebris?” Stan asked as he walked in the door carrying a FedEx parcel. The...

Happy Valentines Day!

Sorry I missed getting the blog up the last week. I finally succumbed to the sinus infection. I eventually went to the doctor to get the antibiotics. I should be human again soon. I am sorry I didn't get the blog done.

But back to Valentines Day. My husband died a little over three years ago. I don't miss flowers and presents on Valentines day; we never did that. I was way too...

Another quick bit of flash fiction from the Horde:

The Cat's Out of the Bag


Rebecca Lickiss

“Me O is back!” Jack shouted as he picked the large black cat up. He stroked the silky soft fur. The cat's rumbling purr echoed in the mud room.

Janice ran into the room. “Me O, why did you run off? You scared us.” She reached over to take the cat from Jack's arms. “Bad kitty.” She rubbed her cheek against th...

Happy Groundhog's Day! I haven't even checked to see what the groundhog official saw. Here it would have been his shadow. It was very sunny today. Yea!

Not that it actually makes a difference, spring won't be here until April or May at the soonest, no matter what some overgrown rodent thinks.

But I've been thinking about the garden this year. I want to start some seeds indoors. I want to do that eve...

Less than a week, and already I've messed up. I forgot to put a new blog post up yesterday. Oh well. I am sorry. I am working on it.

It's been cold and cloudy lately around here. It's not usually this cloudy. Generally cloudy weather makes me disappointed for two reasons. The first is that if it's going to be cloudy it should rain. We should get some benefit from the lack of sunshine. Unfortunately...

Beginning of the Diary


We're moved into the new place. Dad said it would be in the suburb, but it's not exactly. He says in the next few years they'll be building up where we're living, but I don't see any sign of it. The road is still gravel and we're surrounded by farm fields. There is a thin strip of trees and brush betwe...

A few weeks ago I saw something that for me is one of the most beautiful things on Earth. It was a very cold day, and I was out running errands. As I looked around it appeared that glitter was floating all around. It was a kind of snow, but like nothing I'd ever seen before. It wasn't falling, or even blowing horizontally as it is wont to due here. It just hung there glittering in the air, making...

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. It's taken me longer than I thought to recover from falling and breaking my wrist and ankle. The casts are off and I've had almost two months to try to get back to normal. I've just this last week been able to type two handed again. My left hand is uncomfortable twisting to become horizontal over the keyboard. Not painful (anymore) just uncomfortable. I'm back walking the...

 For the first two and a half weeks after I broke my wrist and ankle the dog looked so sad.  Guilt was written all over him.  He had that hang-dog, I know I've done wrong, I'm a bad dog, look.  It was pitiful.  We tried to give extra love to let him know it was all right.  Or at least it will be eventually.  But he just followed behind me, looking guilty, and growling at anyone that came near my w...
