Correction For Tabitha

My humble apologies as I have seen I  said Tabby was 47 which she id 42. I'm still trying to see where she gets the young looks from. I guess being a vegetarian has its good traits. Sorry again for making you older.

Rewrite of Fold, Fold & Tuck

Fold, Fold, & Tuck

Skip Ford©

Fold, fold, and tuck! Fold, fold, and tuck! Such an elementary terminology, one would tend to think of a way to fold a newspaper. Yet for the amateur, it always appeared as a feat one could never consummate. Even more humorous was the Wednesday edition that arrived so thick such a feat could never be accomplished. This was the day those oversized bundles of papers lay waiting with all the inserted advertisements offering a variety of sales and services from the local merchants filled the pages for their loyal subscribers. The thickness would forbid you from folding the paper into such a tight rounded form so they had to be hand-delivered. Such stores like Shop-Rite would promote their "can-can" sales with dancing girls on the cover of a ten-page flyer. It was not like the mega box stores of today where you may cross the threshold of their gigantic complexes at any hour of the day. Life seemed simple as my father would get paid on Friday and the weekend was the time to fit in a shopping schedule where you bought food and supplies for the week. It usually was a Friday or Saturday as Sundays were out of the question as stores by law were forbid from selling their wares on what was called the "blue day" for it was considered God's day and not a day to make money. This law only applied to large shopping stores as the "Mom and Pop" corner stores were exempt. However, beer could never be purchased before one o'clock. Mon and Pop stores are a story all by itself and deserve a tale of its own. 

Writers Unite

 Tabitha Starr and I have come to the decision to share a website so I have allowed her to post on here as well and hope this can benefit our readers and followers

Starr Published 1st book to Kindle

Tabatha Starr soon to publish 

My friend Tabatha Starr is soon to publish on Amazon with her first short story Fire and Ice. Tabatha is originally from the Adirondacks in upstate New York and I recently met her in Florida where we found out we were both writers. Will let you know when it goes to publish

Tabitha Starr

I met a fellow writer the other day in my travels and found her to be very interesting and funny. A woman of 42 she offered her perspective of her writing as it intrigued me as she writes erotica. We shared some insight and debated her style of writing to mine and found even though two completely different styles of writing we still used much of the same process. Our first discussion was about how he could add a different approach to her writing as she felt like she was coming to a standstill Be sure to read our conversation "Creating Great Sex" as I wrote about it and be sure to look for her writings as I promised her I would try to promote her writing.

"They went home... and sat in a hot bath... opened up their veins... and bled to death. And sometimes they had a little party before they did it."

"Do you know what would be the best way to wipe out all of humankind if you were a space alien with a special mind-ray? Make all women telepathic. Cos' if they suddenly found out about the kind of stuff that goes on in our heads they'd kill us all on the spot. Men are not people! We are disgustoids in human form."

— Jeff Murdock, Coupling
