Riveting story, cl. It's details like the Buddha shaped soap, marshmallow shooting guns, the smell of pimento olives & maraschino cherries that are so engaging and tantalizing.

Mr. Pogblog,
many thanks for taking the time to read it and for your kind comments.

It is weird. In my real life, my father's bar did have a big tray of olives and maraschino cherries used for cocktails. It was sort of endlessly fascinating. He also had a big jar of brightly-colored plastic swords to balance these green and red objects on the rim of the glass. Odd what will get a kid's attention..

I'll cry for you then. I'm really in awe of your ability to be such a visual writer CL. Pogblog's right, you get a full picture but then just the right added detail completes things. Wonderful.

Dale,
thanks. It means a lot to me when anyone reads the fiction I post here.
This may seem odd to you but in regular life I'm pretty visually oblivious. Well actually, I'm pretty oblivious.

I guess in that way fiction is very much a fantasy.
