It is already Thursday and I haven’t posted since Monday, you may have noticed. It is all a question of time. I hope to post The Sinclair Method later this week and then on with In the Service of the Wolf. It is all about time really and that got me thinking about time and […]


While we were on sabbatical I watched a great western mini-series on Netflix called Godless. I won’t go into the ins and out of the story here, it is essentially about a mining town populated by widows who are at the mercy of unscrupulous business men and a gang of bandits out for revenge. Michele […]


The Outlaw

14Jan16

The stage wound its way over the ridge, braking some as its wheels churned in the dry dust. The steepness of the trail necessitated the driver having to apply the brake lever and sooth the jittery team least the whole rig tumble down the slope the short way. There were two men up front, both […]


Hard Life

Her father was dead. That was the way it went sometimes. There was still the herd to get to Abilene and if they could cross the mountains before the snow then they might just save the ranch.

Jake Harmon swung the horse around and scanned the horizon. It wasn’t a very big column of smoke but it was definitely in the vicinity of the ranch and he felt sick. There hadn’t been any Indian trouble in these parts for years and besides he hadn’t heard any shots, but all the same he […]


This is another popular and familiar TV spanking from the 1970s. It is from a farcical  Sci-Fi series included within the Two Ronnie’s TV show, which was mainstream on Saturday nights in the UK. The premise is that in the future women rule the country and men have to secretly get together to watch old […]


The stranger bothered her almost as much as Jason Kincaid did. He was a large man with searching dark eyes that never seemed to rest. Also there was something about the set of his jaw reminded her of her father and that determined way he had. It was a cinch that the stranger, whoever he […]


An advert for quirts in a Sears Roebuck catalogue back in the day included an introduction for the ‘lighter’ model. Apparently the shorter ‘third-weight’ size was perfect for applying to difficult wives as it could be felt through heavy prairie clothing without ‘harming your lady.’ Perfect apparently for those quick corrections. A quirt is a […]
