Things You Will Never Hear a Storyteller Say

Just thought of some of these the other day. Wanted to run them by you guys. If you have any additions, please send them to me.

I would tell the ending, but the guy in the back is saying my time's up.

No, I don't care what temperature my water is.

I wish they would go over those housekeeping rules one more time.

No, it really happened...ask Lepp, he was there.

In the immortal words of Henry Miller, "One's destination is not a place, but rather a new way of looking at things."

I have had the incredible opportunity--- and challenges, of working the marketing side of a new development here. It is a "Village" idea.

The City Parks teamed up with the University here and developed a beautiful, 10-acre, indoor outdoor tennis center center, also just down the new road from THE COTSWOLDS (the name for the VILLAGE.… Continue
