The Disappearing Frying Pan by Clayton Clifford Bye | The Write Room Blog | Water the mind - READ | Scoop.it

The young pilot who picked him up at dawn hit the tops of the trees with his pontoons during take-off, grinning from ear to ear all the while. Not that Mike Money really minded. After a night at Webequie he was happy to see anyone. The place bothered him. He was pretty sure it was haunted...

Sharla Shults's insight:

A well crafted story. Even if it is fictional, it accurately depicts how such an event would have played out.

Except for the Cat | The Write Room Blog

Except for the Cat | The Write Room Blog | Water the mind - READ | Scoop.it

Everything would have worked out fine except for that damned cat.


Ihate cats. They are, as my brother Solly once said, our perfect enemy. Boring-as-toast Solly, who’s never liked being part of the Cleanup Crew. “Too much risk, Bella,” he tells me every time a hunt comes up. I kind of wish I’d listened to him this time. No, scratch that. There’s no kind of about it.


Anyway, back to the cat.

Sharla Shults's insight:

What a clever story by D. M. Pirrone @The Write Room Blog! A must read indeed...Enjoy!

Sharla Shults's insight:

"We all have read many stories about Cinderella, but this was an enjoyable read about a South African Cinderella. I do not want to tell you more about this wonderful story, other than to say - enjoy a well written "Tale of Two" and all of their friendships and connections."

The Case of an Ape Gone Berserk: an “I Was There Mystery” by James L. Secor, B.A., M.S., Ph.D., Q.P.Q. | The Write Room Blog

Any PI just out of school could have solved this case but it came to me because the Zoo was my territory. Perhaps this was because of my circus background. I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. I was there. I had a job to do.


I was called about 6 PM. I was just sitting down to a nice TV dinner, beef bourgoyne with mashed potatoes and gravy, and a can of Hamm’s Special Light Lager when the phone rang. Damn! I thought. Just when Dialing For Dollars was getting exciting. I reached over to the end table and picked up the phone, a red Nextel I took off my belt when I got home. As always.

Sharla Shults's insight:

As one author put it...absurd but entertaining. I have to agree! Check it out for yourself...
