Dad was a WWII veteran, and later a teacher of American history. When he still had his wits , he was an inveterate storyteller, and a lot… Read full post »
It must have rained the night before. I remember the scent of wet grass combined with the warmth of early June sunshine. I paced up and down the red brick sidewalk in front of my grandmother’s house on Collett Street, in deep meditation, before I even knew the meaning of… Read full post »

This is a murder mystery except there is no mystery as to whom gets murdered or who the murder is. The only mystery is what happens to the murderer. This is kind of a fun story - a bit long, but stick with it.
