The Best of Years

Dear Friends, I planned on posting a story tonight, however I am sick. If I had a webcam some of you, the more compassionate among you, would be going: "A-w-w-w-w." The rest of you would go: "E-w-w-w-w." Anyway, I am going to bed. Before I do though, allow me to post two bits of fiction offered up first by Kate and then by Lucas. I will try adding my own tomorrow. Until then: Peace

First, Kate's 1964 offering...she's just a young un, don't you think? http://sterlingwriting.blogspot.com/

Then: Lucas' 1982 offering...god...I got coldsores older than him.

If anyone else would like to contribute, email me. I swear I'll post mine tomorrow. Please visit these two and give them feedback. I think you'll enjoy yourself.

Hope you're already feeling better, Stu. Happy Valentine's Day to both you and Mrs. Sternberg!

Happy V.D. (Valentine's Day)

Sorry to hear you are sick.. I hope you feel better quickly!! Being sick is the pitts.

Charles Gramlich said...

Uh oh, I can see the Cult of Sternberg starting to erode as your worshippers see that you are merely human and can fall prey to illnesses like the rest of us. I feel my own faith fading, fading. Gone.

Well, now that you're human, hope you get OK soon.

I didn't finish my story.
I started researching it but when I actually had peace and time to think about it I went to bed and read The New Mutants instead.

I hope you feel better

Avery said...

Don't listen to Charles. I'll take Kool-aid from you any day of the week. ;)

Feel better.

Stewart Sternberg said...

THANKS ALL FOR THE KIND COMMENTS. CHARLES, I AM RISEN FROM THE GRAVE. NOW, MY MINIONS WILL GO FORTH AND WHAT YOU SOUGH TO SQUASH WILL BE TEN TIMES MORE POWERFUL...OR...MAYBE NOT SO MUCH.

I WILL TRY AND GET A POSTING UP LATER TODAY...AFTER I GET OUT OF BED AGAIN...OR AFTER THE MISSUS AND I...WELL..LATER.

You and I were born the same year (I think) and I don't know what Canada's history that year was like so much, but America was in the throes of Vietnam (as you know) and when I went and started thinking about what to write I was totally uninspired. I think it's because the era has been done to death.

I mean, once you have an Oliver Stone movie (or two) about a certain era, it kinda loses its appeal.

Sphinx Ink said...

I must advocate on Mrs. Sternberg's behalf and say I hope you are not using this "illness" as a spurious excuse to avoid your Valentine's Day duties to your spouse....Beware the wrath of the woperone in your life! (For definition of "woperone," see TITTERS: THE FIRST COLLECTION OF HUMOR BY WOMEN, 1976.)

I hope you start feeling better. It's never fun being sick. Emory came home feeling so bad that I thought I would have to drive him to the hospital.
