Thanks, Sancho. Always a pleasure to bounce stories off each other! On to the next!
It certainly was enjoyable. I apologize if I came across as rather vitriolic at times. I have a tendency to slip in that direction, a prevalent carry-over from my fiction writing. Yet... like you said, I too think we agree on more things than we disagree on, only it appears I tend to interpret certain aspects of what we were discussing in a more cynical manner. I suppose the proverbial "potato-potato" is apt there.
Yeah, I know, I don't mind anyone adding to this as I am sure you do not, but they need to read the story so far and try to keep some sort of flow going. You and I have added and subtracted characters, established a link between the Enterprise in the far future and The City of New Orleans steaming down the track for Kansas, where the cyclone, oddly, still hasn't struck Dorothy Gale's house. Say, figure out the next train stop, OK? Your turn to see who gets on or off.

I heard that before somewhere on the Forums. I think one of the Blokes dropped that off on my porch one day. Sounds like he was influenced by Spike Jones.

You know me too well and my love of fire.
Thanks for the happy birthday.
We'll be creating another "Mozartgeist" to burn here in a couple of weeks.
Oh...and here's a song I can't seem to get out of my head lately. I think you'd appreciate it.
Except for very occasional visits to the poetry forum I wouldn't have heard of them either.
I still don't know what they mean and can't be bothered to look them up.
I think I can live without them.
