The Writing Madness of Oz rolls on and I Find something Most Unusual!

So the last few weeks have been filled with writing, teaching and attending auctions. In other words, business as usual... with one exception.

Yes, that is a human bone and no, that's not blood on it. This was another one of my unique finds at the auction barn. Turns out it's a teaching aid and the red markings are locations marked out for muscles. There are also blue marks where tendons attach. My wife freaked out when I handed it to her. Turns out she ain't big on handling human remains. Go figure?

The writing madness of Oz has also gone on very well. 17 chapters are now complete and our heroes have made it back into The Bright and now look to save the day for one very special rainbow. I wonder where Polychrome is?

Consumer Alert! Pizza Hut Refuses Customer Order!

I had a very unpleasant experience this evening with our local Pizza Hut restaurant, which is located at 3040 Wabash Avenue in Terre Haute, Indiana.

I had called the store at 9:54pm to order 2 large specialty pizzas. When the lady answered the phone, she answered politely enough and asked how she could help me. I proceeded to order and was told that they would be unable to fulfill my order. I asked why and was told that it was too close to closing time. I reminded her that it was not yet closing time and asked if she was refusing my order. She hesitated and explained that their ovens were turned off. I asked once more if she was refusing my order and she said that she was. As a customer with money to spend, I expect a store to remain open and ovens on until closing time, not 6 minutes beforehand. Having worked at many a pizza place in my youth (I met my wife of 28 years while we both worked at Showbiz Pizza Place), I know how the business works. While we may not have liked it when someone would come in near closing time, we always accommodated any order up to and including closing time.
I called another store here in town and they were happy to take my order and expressed surprise at my experience with the other store as they thought the other store closed at 11pm, like they did.

I am very displeased and will no longer do business with that particular store.

I would suggest to anyone reading this that you consider refraining from doing business with the Pizza Hut store at 3040 Wabash Avenue in Terre Haute, Indiana.

I know I will.

Hard Times in Oz!

It's been a rough week as I watch a parent grow old and feeble. My hope for full recovery is now in view and I expect the old broad to outlive us all!!!

Still I write and have been for some weeks now. I'm 15 chapters in and another 10 to go. I'm just not blogging what with all the this and that... and even some of the other.

Pickleless & Blu have hopped a train and are escaping in plain view.

I'm reminded of a book I received as a gift some months ago. Scarecrow and the Tin Man have escaped as well from the theater and gone on a crime spree.

I think Pickleless & Blu are immune from prosecution.

And now for some Radium!
