Been reading since around the time this was first published. ;-). I love how you worked in the reference inspired by Stand By Me. Ever seen it? ;-). It was my favorite surprise of the summer of 86 or whenever it was released to theathers. I was a fan then.

Thanks for reposting that. Its become a traditional expectation. Been here since the early days- 2002 or so. My other favorite story is about poles, wax and the home center, probably that orange one.

that was a nice solid "slice of life". creepy, too. Reminds me of how far you have come as a blogger and writer. been reading since the days of the story about ryan and nolan at the lumber store, talking about grinding a rail. ;-)

I wish I had time to contribute more, but as a new vocational teacher teaching technology, I am having a similar experience every day. Not that I can explain it, but one of the new teacher things we're being taught is something called "multiple intelligences" which I know I will find a way to explain the way my head is wired.

Definitely mark this entry for your next book or publication. Ending with the reference to Stand By Me was so perfect. For me, the first time I saw the movie was during college in Boston (BU) and Steven King came by to give a talk... just too freaky weird. I can't remember if I had read "Apt Pupil" in "Different Seasons" yet or not. It was because of "Stand By Me" that I bought "Different Seasons" to read "The Body". In those days, if it came out on video, it took a lot longer. My first experience with D&D was a few years earlier in high school. My best friend and I manufactured a way to play during study hall. We could have "no continuos talking". I know right where my books are. ;-)
