Aug 20, PM. Loved Kurt Vonnegut's short stories, but the late Ray Bradbury was the master. Among my favorites was "The Garbage Collector. Aug 21, PM. Wow, how did I leave Hemingway off of the list?

Updike's "The Lucid Eye in Silver Town" was the first story to dazzle and draw me into the world of reading.
Vonnegut tickled my college years.
Just discovered Cornell Woolrich and have been feeding my summer habit with vintage noir complete with both the roguish vocab and cringeworthy stereoptypes of the era. Lately it seems "Bartelby the Scrivener" is the subject of so much mention-itis that I'm going to have to check it out as well.

Nov 08, PM. I love "The Tent" by Margaret Atwood. She says so much with so few words. Some of the stories are only one page long but convey an entire world. I love both of them. Dec 05, PM.

One day Grandpa wanted to teach us a lesson about trust and gratitude, so he told us a story about the lion and the monkey….
The lion and the monkey lived in a thick jungle. The lion roamed the jungle floor, while the monkey lived in the treetops. One day the lion saw some meat on top of a banana leaf on the jungle floor.
The lion moved towards the middle of the banana leaf, but as he sunk his teeth into the meat, the ground gave way beneath him. Together with the meat and the banana leaf, he fell into a deep pit. The pit was so narrow that the lion could only stand upright, on his hind legs. He made frantic efforts to climb out of the deep pit, but with each attempt the red soil crumbled under his claws and he sank back to the bottom of the pit.
Who we are
The exhausted lion was still there at dusk when suddenly he saw a tail pass by. The tail belonged to a monkey who had jumped over the pit.
The lion called desperately for help. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. New York Times.
