To the 2300 some-odd SOL members who took the trouble to read my little flash story, I say, "Thank you". It wasn't much of a story and while some readers thought it was terrific, a similar number thought it was garbage, which is about right, I guess. It had it's stroke moments but it wasn't all that well thought out.
I stopped submitting to SOL about 4 years ago and this was a little piece of fun. What I did get a kick out of is that a large number of readers discovered my older stuff, and were quite generous in their reviews.
So again, "Thank you". It's good to be back...if only for a few days.
Well, it's been a long time but I'm posting a story called, "Her New Underwear". First story in almost 4 years. I've been retired; preferring to devote my old lechery to Aqualung-like experiences, like "Watching the frilly panties run". The story is called, "Her New Underwear." It's about a 14 year old girl who models her new underwear for her daddy and his grandfatherly friend. It's seriously perverted but, what the fuck, right?
Actually, the writing and posting of this story is a lot more involved than I'm allowed to go into, but I can say this: About 3 years ago a very interesting young woman read several of my stories and wrote to me. We corresponded and although she'd never written anything like what we see on SOL, after a lot of seriously fun cyber sex, I saw she had a gift and I encouraged her and helped her through her early efforts and the rest (dramatic drum roll please) is SOL history.
Like Joe DiMaggio, she retired way too early for her fan's desire but, or so she told us, felt it was time to move on.
I apologize for being so mysterious but a promise is a promise. We hope you enjoy the story.
What's not to love? But first, some disclaimers:
Tea Party thinking is more like that of Taliban fanatics than level-headed Americans.
Liberals live somewhere in some pie in the sky and wouldn't recognize fiscal responsibility if it fell on them.
Democrats and Republicans' primary agenda is to get elected, so anything they say is self-serving and suspect.
However, when it's all said and done, if I had to label myself, I'd say I'm a Common Sense, Issues First, Centrist Democrat. OK, enough disclaimers.
I'm over 65 and I collect Medicare. And boy, do I love my Medicare. I have a Humana Medicare Advantage plan. There are no clinics. Every doctor I was using before, is in their network and I go to their offices, like before. I pay specialists a $10 copay. My RX drugs are free. I have hospital benefits. I have a gym membership. There's a visiting nurse service. There are eye exam and eye glasses benefits. There's no deductible and I pay $125/month. It's the best health care plan I've ever had.
Humana's regular health insurance plan, for a guy my age, would be about $1500/month + a large deductible and herein lies the point of this blog: The US taxpayers are picking up about $18,000/year for my premiums, PLUS the cost of the health care itself. And I'M JUST ONE PERSON. It's no wonder we're broke.
Am I going to voluntarily give this up? Are you nuts? Hey, I'm entitled. So thank you America. Thank you, thank you. Thank you.
We now return fiscal sanity to my accountant, who told me to shut up and take the money and run (before the Democrats and Liberals figure this out).
I just received this anonymous email and it cracked me up. I'm printing it in its' entirety, in the hope you don't think I composed it.

Is it true Chandra is just a creation of Rachael
Ross so she can feud with herself online? ;-)
Come on....if you don't think that's a funny line, then you have no sense of humor. Kudos to the anonymous emailer.
And where is Chandra, anyway? Anyone hear from our girl?
I received a very strange email from someone asking about Chandra. I tried emailing back but the email add was NG. I was Chandra's first SOL contact and we haven't hidden the fact that we're friends but nothing has been written about that lately, so I'm already curious why I received this email at this particular time.
It was almost incomprehensible but I was able to make out the basics. He (Actually, I don't know for certain that it was a he) wanted to know Chandra's name so he could look up her stories. (Uhhh...try Chandra?) He wanted to know about her mythology. (Her what?) And he wanted to know why she thinks of herself as God of something. (Say what? There's only one person on this site with the chutzpa to refer to themselves as a God and it certainly isn't Chandra.)
If this is the kind of screwball she's attracting (rhetorical question: why was it sent to me and not her?), it's no wonder her stories are getting trashed.
"Hello and thank you for posting on SOL today. My name is Aqualung and I'll be your lunatic fringe email writer."
Thank goodness the internet protects us from people like this.
