Tales by Tom

This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Aug 12, 2012

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the first installment of Tom Cagley Sr's short story collections entitled, “Innocents All.”   

Story One:  The ring… The Depression had begun. My mother bought my father and expensive gift: a ring that probably set her back $50 at the time. Black onyx with his initial on top. White gold. Inside she engraved AC (Adeline Cagley) to GC (George Cagley) and dated it 8/20/30, the first birthday they’d been together after their marriage 10/26/29, three days before Black Tuesday. The ring came to me in 2007. What a treasure! Then I lost it. But I had help in that quest.

An innocent out and about on New Year’s Eve 1951… I was 17 and had nothing to do for the evening. I was bound and determined to make the night memorable somehow.

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.
