Regina Watts – ‘Dolcett Horrotica’

The Bloody Book Blogger

This work oftransgressive horroticaexplores concepts that some readers may find disturbing. Discretion is strongly advised.

Harold loves Dottie. Dottie loves Harold. Dottie and Harold both love Dolcett. Welcome to the first entry in a flavorful billionaire love story like you’ve never read before: American Psycho meets 50 Shades on a bad acid trip.

Harold Fleetwood is pathetic. Despite being the billionaire CEO of a major Fortune 500 company, he’s a divorcé in his mid-fifties who can hardly look a woman in the eye. His dark compulsions and sick fantasies fill him with shame and leave the Internet as his only outlet, not just for titillation, but for intimacy–until the day he discovers bratty Dottie Shipman, the sexiest secretary in the office, has a dirty little secret she’s been hiding.

Turns out, Dottie is as intrigued by taboo fantasies as Harold is. Not only that, but she’s the artist…

Home Front – Hard to keep the good times rollin’

Pacific Paratrooper

[ This post was originally a guest post I wrote for Judy Guion @ Greatest Generation Lessons.  Being as times are rough these days, I thought a bit of comparison with what our parents and grandparents went through was in order. ]

Columnist Marquis Childs said after Pearl Harbor: “Nothing will ever be the same.”  Thirty-five years later he added: “It never has and never will be.”

We need to remember that in 1941 as much as 40% of U.S. families lived below the poverty level, approximately 8 million worked for less than minimum wage and another 8 million were unemployed.  The median income was about $2,000 per year.  The government, in virtually fighting two separate wars, entered into civilian lives by raising taxes, rationing, controlling prices and allotting jobs.

Once the war began, truck convoys became commonplace and train depots burst into arenas of activity.  The movement was not…

Poem – “The Conversion”

Pacific Paratrooper

From the C.B.I. Theater of operation Roundup newsletter came this poem of wisdom.  Just something to keep in mind – no matter what theater of operations OR which war the veteran emerges from….

THE CONVERSION

When bugles sound their final notes
And bombs explode no more
And we return to what we did
Before we went to war
The sudden shift of status
On the ladder of success
Will make some worthy gentlemen
Feel like an awful mess.

Just think of some poor captain
Minus all his silver bars
Standing up behind some counter
Selling peanuts and cigars
And think of all the majors
When their oak leaf’s far behind
And the uniforms they’re wearing
is the Western Union kind.

Shed a tear for some poor colonel
if he doesn’t feel himself
Jerking sodas isn’t easy
When the eagle’s on the shelf
‘Tis a bitter pill to swallow
‘Tis a…

If You Know…

”Why hate them because they sin different from you? Everyone sins as conscripted. Everyone.”

‘3 Perspectives’ by Ikechukwu Okeagu

As is usually the case, the above quote has little or nothing to do with the story I am about to tell. I felt the need to share. After all you and I are friends …are we not?

Great!

Glad we cleared that up.

How have you been?

Really…?

Sigh…I wish the best for you, I promise you that I do.

I got back from a hiking trip this past weekend.

I had considered the option of making this journey along the lines of;
Corvid 19,
The hazards of corrupt police,
Unhappy military checkpoints.
Paramilitary officials;
Local government officials,
Ill-positioned Civil Defence officers,
Road Safety officers with misplaced priorities and Drug Enforcement Agency officials.

Oh… and Vehicle Inspection Officers.
And herds of cattle crossing federal highways in droves.

I…

“Initium…”

That evening it cracked

Torrents wiped away all defunct

The day the dam burst.

Then the most glorious sun

It’s lights illuminated the cosmos

So sprouted Africa’s Jungle.

Mind/Body/Soul: Essence and Existence

The Tranquil Frog

The concept of essence is so fundamental to how we view our individual existence that it not only affects our understanding of how we came into the world and how we will leave it, it also affects how we order and live our lives. How we arrived at this divide requires a look at the historical development of ideas concerning our experience of reality.
