Welcome to the eleventh instalment of my short story collection I have titled, "Stories I Tell on Myself."  We have a single story this week that I think you will enjoy!

Story 14, 15, 16 and 17 are a group of stories that explain, from an ancestral viewpoint, how Jackie came to be on that hotel balcony that night in L.A. (from the mid-1700s) when I proposed to her without a first kiss; it explains how I came to be there (from 1754); it tells you what happened on the balcony (October 1976) and how I found out in 1994 that we were related BEFORE I asked her the little questions. Yes, you heard right. And tell me God doesn’t have a plan for us all!! It is a real love story.

I also provide an interlude with a collection called “Just for a Change in Pace” --- they are one to three line love poems I wrote to her over the years that separate each of the four stories. Great Valentine thoughts ---but for me they were year-round. So, get yourself a glass of wine, relax, listen to the poems and let your mind go to places where only you can go.

Then listen to the four parts with poems in the middle entitled Myron Had it Right.  We continue with part 4 today.

I encourage you to provide feedback on this story or any of the earlier shorts by email at or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.
