Who Dun It?

         The pencil, the pen or the marker?

... And what did it do?
The pencil was known to be the sharpest in the bunch. He liked to throw lead around. They called him 7H.

In comparison to him all his siblings were soft but they were the ones to turn to if you needed a shady job doing.

7H had his eye on the marker 'cos everyone agreed she was very fine. She was a double ended model. she had a slim body and great tips.

The pen had been dry for years and he never had no chance. He was out of cartridges. He drew the line and ran.

The market did it. You could say that the marker saw "the handwriting on the wall" and decided to change it. The original words were, "Don't fake it!" The marker changed the words to "Be real and enjoy what is in front of you."

I think it is almost unanimous now. The Marker. And it has a previous conviction, too. By me! Each time I use it, my hands get black veins on them.
Moreover, its ink smells, leaving clues that are impossible to erase.

I've been reading several books for research on my alternate history: Rosebery: Statesman in Turmoil by Leo McKinstry, The Asquiths by Colin Clifford, and H.H. Asquith's Letters to Venetia Stanley. All of them are good, though there are times when I want to slap Prime Minister Asquith up the head for his obsession with the 35-years-younger Venetia, the best friend of his daughter Violet. Asquith was lucky that he lived a century ago and that the letters were not published until 1982: if they had been published while he was PM, he would have been in trouble so deep that I don't think he would have found a way out.

We should be truly thankful that we have a device such as a computer and keyboard to write this on. We should be thankful that we have a place to send it and keep it. We should be thankful that we have the ability and knowledge to read it and write something this way. We should be thankful that our fingers and nerve endings can respond to what our brain is thinking. We should be grateful that we have electricity and an internet signal to perform this task. We should be thankful that we have vision to see this as we type. We should be thankful that we are alive to do it. See? Things to be thankful for and we haven't even gotten off writing.com and this post to think of anything else.

Famous Friday



Tell us something
about someone famous!


Alexandre Dumas (Père, French word for “father”) (b. 1802 – d. 1869), author of two of my favorite books, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers, had a notable family. Père Dumas was the son of Thomas-Alexandre Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie (b. 1762 - d. 1806), the first man of color to become a brigadier general, a divisional general and a general-in-chief in the French Army during to French Revolution.

Thomas-Alexandre was the son of a white French nobleman and Marie-Cessette Dumas, an enslaved woman of Afro-Caribbean descent. He took his mother’s name because his father, a Marquis, did not want his son to use his name, fearing scandal. General Dumas was ultimately the highest-ranking officer of Sub-Saharan descent ever in Western military service until 1975, when American Daniel “Chappie” James, Jr. became the first African-American 4-star general in the USAF. The Black Count, written by Tom Reiss, is a non-fiction book that tells the tale of the real Comte de Monte Cristo – Alexandre Dumas’ father. Incidentally, John Legend’s film company, Get Lifted has the rights to this movie.

Père Dumas had an illegitimate son - Alexandre Dumas (fils, French word for “son”) (b. 1824 - d.1895) who wrote the play Camille (adapted from his novel titled The Lady of the Camellias), which was also adapted by Giuseppe Verdi as the opera La Traviata. The book and play were born of Dumas’ (fils) belief that if a man gets a woman pregnant, he should legitimize the child and marry the mother. His own early life and that of his mother were difficult because his parents never married.

"Doc Suzie" (Susan Anderson, M.D.) traveled over the Continental Divide in 1907 by way of Rollins Pass and the Moffat Road. Headed to and serving the "icebox of the nation", Fraser, Colorado, she broke through glass ceilings of the time and held her own with loggers, ranchers, homesteaders, drunks, other pioneers, and the men boring the west portal of the Moffat Tunnel. By way of snowshoes, riding the rails, and sometimes on horseback, she found her own second chance for her own health and her career in a time when a "mere woman" was not accepted by the big and brawny, but in these harsh conditions, she was their only option. She's an important pioneer who made her mark on Colorado and our Western Slope! (Look into her life!)

I'm trying to find motivation. I'm at work but I'm out of my element. I am a bartender at heart but am working at my in-laws auto body shop. It's not a corporate joint. We could use a Gordon Ramsay of sorts for a business intervention. I keep reminding myself that this is a blessing; that my last job was family owned too, and seeing the family come to work and be lazy, ungrateful and miserable pissed me off because not everyone was fortunate enough to have something so special in their family. Anything beats a blank, I could be worse off. Now if I could just think of how to solve the organization/communication problems around here... *Smile*
