    Thanks for the acceptance mtpspur -- I thought that there's no way two comics guys can not be friends on this lit forum.

    Hellboy is probably my favorite -- but this does change from time to time -- but I keep going back to my trades and just adore the art and story telling of that series.

    I totally understand the difficulty in keeping up with our assorted favorites. It's hard.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Thats a shame theres no room for extras. And i dont think you are whining! Even if you dont get to buy stuff from the store, you can at least see it and have the Powells experience. Something, me being in Ireland, will probably never experience. And i'm sure when you get there you will love the new Daughter-in-law who i'm sure will love you in return.

    She used to have a blog once upon a time; what happened with that?

    You are welcome, Rich. I was up late one night and saw that she was on at the same time (I rarely see her actually online), and I thought, why not?

    My family is fine, thank you for asking. My mother is ailing; I'm heading back up to visit her tomorrow. How are things with you and yours?

    Secret Avengers it is then! I've been meaning to pick up a Marvel title to read in issues, and the Avengers seems good enough for me. By the way, I totally agree with you about Brubaker's work (especially with Cap). Great stuff.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I had a few moments of trying to read some of my fave Blogs.
    I shall have to blog a bit myself to get re-aquainted with the fine art of blogging once more, lol!
    Good to see/talk to you, Rich!
    I missed you!

Jane Austen in Very Concise Summary

by mtpspur on 01-13-2015 at 01:40 PM
Recently finished a collection of Jane Austen's Seven Novels and came away well pleased with her writing but not her plot solutions. In these more modern and sophisticated times much agony and heartbreak would have been avoided with simple statements or honest answers to questions--just saying--tongue firmly in cheek.

Lady Susan: "Lady Susan aren't there any other family members you could stay with?" (Asked by anyone she's living off of for months at a time.)

Strange Authors from The Saint Magazine

by mtpspur on 07-06-2014 at 08:02 PM
Spent the afternoon going through my copies of The Saint Magazine. These were mystery digests published from 1953-1967 with a very three issue 1984 revival. Missing 36 of the original 141 issue run and the last two issues of the revival. The idea was to index any author I had an interest in so I could locate them later when wanting to read them.

Some authors noted were a bit of a surprise. Isaac Asimov (06-56), Pearl Buck (04-58, 04-66), Ray Bradbury (06-84), Erskine Caldwell (05-56),

Career Move

by mtpspur on 06-03-2014 at 02:28 AM
It has been a huge amount of time since being here. The fault is mine as I have been actually swept up in Facebook relationships that have become very meaningful in their in my life.

The biggest change occurred May 14h last month when Allied AAA decided to move the dispatchers form the Dayton Call Center to Lexington KY. I did not desire to move so after 22 and half years I am now released from my second career in life. The first was the Air Force for a little over 21 years. The

And Yet Back Again

by mtpspur on 08-18-2013 at 06:42 PM
Still not in love with the format changes here. I never entirely want to go away but on the other hand my life has changed a bit. The debt load has substantially gone away--paid off a debt consolidation loan and took a pension payoff (which will be made up by social security when the time comes-thanks to my military retirement check I'm fairly good). Just now getting set up with a view to saving up for next year's taxes and next year even taking a real vacation and not the stay at homes they

A Look Back

by mtpspur on 06-04-2013 at 06:54 PM
Time has been flying these past few months and my dislike of the format changes here continues to hinder my participation herein.

Pretty much Anna Karenina was the last real literature I have read. More recent reads were the Complete Cardigan--4 voulumes by Frederick Nebel and the Complete Donahue by same. Have read about four Spider pulp novels and he is best experienced in short doses.

My finances took major step forward end of last year when AAA offered an pension
