BATTLEFRONT

Charlie Barker trades in his straw hat for a soldier’s helmet today for the Sideshow of the Surreal.  Lines are draw and the battlefront is all around.  Keep your head down it you may be shot at!

In a dystopian conflict in the all too familiar not too distant future, it really stinks to be BEHIND ENEMY LINES.  What is even more tragic is THE HOPELESS WAR.  But there is always R&R if you can get leave.  Spend it at THE TAVERN AT FOREVER’S EDGE.  The bartender is out of this world.

Three tales from the south take over the Circus of the Unknown next time.  Join us then and until then, keep your head down.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ME BY

It’s that time of year when we remember those who have moved on, folks.  And, with any luck, they are left behind a legacy in which we can remember them.  Charlie has three such tales today.

TRIBUTE OF THE JENNY LEE tells us about a flying fighter than haunts the unfriendly skies.  Then, who could forget the Frankenstein legacy?  Here is a snippet of that setting, told from a different perspective than usual in a MOMENTARY DISTRACTION.  Our third tale of remembrance comes when two boys are a day late AND A DOLLAR SHORT.

Through the snapshots of memory, the departed are not lost.  Keep them in mind.  Also, keep Charlie in mind, too.  He’ll save a spot on the bench in the sideshow for you.  Just don’t ask him to keep it warm.  Skeleton’s don’t have body heat.  That would be mean of you.
