Feb 9, 2014

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the twelfth installment of Tom Cagley Sr's Novella entitled, “The Medal, Revisited. A Blessing from Rome”   

The Medal, Revsited. A Blessing from Rome is a multi-installment story.  This version of The Medal is a reimagining of a story Tom Cagley Sr has returned to many times.  The story is a powerful mixture of memories and imaginings that will paint a vivid picture for the listener. 

Story so far: After reconnecting as a family, Charlie calls telling Cal he has returned to Rhoda.  

This instalment: Cal goes to the annual shoe buying trip to New York City in December. He goes to St. Patrick’s and visits Saks next door through a door that should have been closed. Guess who is there in the half-dark. Later Cal receives a package from Michael, the son who came with his mother when she married Cal’s dad.
