Welcome to 2018

Okay - first things first.  2017 was not a good year for me, and I let things slip.  I'm going to try to keep to a fortnightly schedule for now, but thank you for sticking with me.

Couple of things to clear up first - like the rest of the Silent Night stories for 2017, and also a tale from Spandexman when Jessica Claus Gets Kidnapped.

And for the Pussycat Gang, the time for the heist of the century is near in Two Weddings and a Robbery.

What else - how about some more tales of John Jacobs in New Year Cat.

Or a glimpse into Objects of Beauty with a Saturday Night Takeaway?

No - well, how about the latest program from the DiD Channel on the subject of Pure Hostages?

Or a man talking about his hobby?

We also have the next part of The Wrong Choices.

We'll be Back, as always God Willing, in two weeks, but until then I remain,

Christmas is coming

and with Christmas comes unexpected guests - such as Mister Tall and Mister Small as they share some Christmas Lessons.

Or three ladies in grey as they help some women get Dolled Up.

It may be December, but for the Pussycat Gang and Madame X it is July 2016 - and time for Two Weddings and a Robbery.

Two women come to Common Destinations

And finally, some short Silent Night tales.

I did promise Objects of Beauty - they, and the Cat, will God Willing be here next week, but until then, I remain,

A month is too long

and I am truly sorry, but real life in November was a bitch.  No excuses - I am just so glad it is the holiday season.

I also need to make an announcement - due to a change in policy by e-book carriers, the only place you can get new collections by me and others under the KP Presents banner will be my Lulu store here.  Mind you, I also get more if you buy them here...

Anyway - onwards, and we complete Fresh Starts with the CS awards show, and some life changing decisions...

Ever wonder how Jay Edwards and Mrs McPhee really got started?  If you did, read some Taped Tales.

One man discusses what is In My Room

We meet the Go Go Gone Intruder

And finally, Marcos offers part 2 of The Wrong Choices.

I am hoping to be back next weekend, God willing, with the Gentlemen Robbers, the China Dolls, and Objects of Beauty, but until then, I remain,

Down Under

First, a word from our sponsors...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfR9iY5y94s

And why?  Because preparations are underway for the Complete Style Awards in the latest part of Fresh Starts.

We also have a report of weekend events from A Wet Saturday...

The Cat Reviews some old photos...

Two women have a Revelation...

And finally, a late Halloween tale with the Changelings.

Oh - and allow me to share some photos that have inspired me at my Pinterest account  - https://za.pinterest.com/kevpickering/

I'll be back, as always God willing, in a week or two, but until then, I remain,

Of Dogs and Monsters

Well now - something I need to say first.  As some of you will have gathered from past ramblings, I tend to suffer from stress issues, and my writing is part of my way of dealing with those issues.  Recently, however, things have been getting on top of me, to the extent even my writing has been difficult and not the release it needs to be - and if you are looking for a reason for the gaps between updates, that's probably the number one reason.

I am trying to deal with that, but in the meantime please be patient as I try to get back on track.  Allow me this week to try and make up for it...

Starting with part 1 of Fresh Starts, as the ladies continue to celebrate Abby's birthday, but there are major revelations concerning Agnes, Susan and many others - not the least of which is the true identity of a major character in the world of Madame X...

And talking of her, a tale of Family Modesty...

And in the area of known characters, enjoy One Day at College...

I wish to pay tribute to the man known as Wwwarmachine, a star of the old Dreambook days, by taking a story he started (and someone else finished badly) and doing my version of The Photographer.

There's also a dose of The White Stuff...

And finally, welcome Marcos with the first part of The Wrong Choices - a very timely tale.

I will be back, God (and the Black Dog) Willing, next weekend, but for now I remain,

The thing about parties

is secrets will come out, and relationships change - as they do in the final part of Abigail's Party.

We also have a tale of home invasion for a Church Family and friend...

One woman has Memories of a Wet Autumn Day...

And a classic tale from the old Dreambooks of Truth or Dare.

More, as always God Willing, next week, but for now, I remain,

Okay, so I said a weekly update

and it's been three weeks.  Mea Culpa - let me make it up to you, starting with some more short After School Special tales.

And a few new Mother and Daughter moments, where an announcement awaits.

The WABAC Machine has been back to School - Crime School.

And it is the Eighteenth birthday of Abigail de Ros in part 2 of Abigail's Party.

Finally, Bandit offers Claire's Submission - and awaits your comments.

We will be back, as always God Willing, next week, but for now I remain,
