Better the Devil you Know

  Well, there you have it, not much to look at, but it does tend to frighten away many of those who seem to delight in coming to the front door in order to attempt to sell you stuff, up to and including a very dubious notion of an afterlife so bland, dull and humourlessContinue reading “Better the Devil you Know”

Some New Furniture

  It was a bit odd, I’ll give you that. After all, domestic furniture is not supposed to breed – at least, not as far as I know.

They Call Me The Hunter

  They call me The Hunter. I moved between the shadows, between the trees, behind the bushes.

When you are young like that, and as involved with yourself and those around you of the same age, youContinue reading “The Secrets of Hats”


It was not really that obvious, not at first anyway.
