This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Feb 14, 2010

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the fourth installment of  Tom Cagley Sr's short shory collections entitled, “Travel At Your Own Risk.” I think this installment will deliver more surprises. 

Story Six:  This little jewel is about Smalltown, USA. Iowa no less. It’s about two cardinal sins in retailing --- one has to do with merchandise. It’s about the benefits (sometimes) of not knowing all the details about a job you’re taking. It’s also about being empowered and the long-lasting results thereof.

Story Seven:  This story, set in rural northern Mississippi, talks of the wonderful nature of some in-laws. I said some. It also proves two things that I swear by;
A.    Neither a borrower of a lender be
B.    If it doesn’t smell like it, it probably isn’t. And if you can see it and it doesn’t look like it, it certainly isn’t.

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