Around the World by Horse and Caravan: A Record Breaking Journey

I've been holding this story back awhile - non-fiction this time. Originally an attempt at getting the journey below into Wikipedia the resulting article is what you see. I went on this record breaking journey around the world with my family by horse and caravan starting in 1990. The First Around the World by Horse Drawn… Continue reading Around the World by Horse and Caravan: A Record Breaking Journey

Weekly Six XXXI – Six Word Stories

MORE STORY FOR your money/ time. Well, yeah, time. Some more six word stories, the 31st edition. I've seemingly stockpiled six word stories like a country might with nuclear warheads whether the war is cold or not. Enjoy: 50 shots. None dead. Toy won. No angels, no snowmen: nuclear winter.

I'm not sure… Continue reading Goodbye For Now

I approached in the silent queue, shuffling and staring to either side, trying to alleviate the… Continue reading Customised – SHORT STORY

In a small scrap book I cut and paste titles, lettering, graphics and pictures to create new themes and ideas, essentially remixing magazines, the same way a… Continue reading Cut n’ Paste Graphics
