Welcome to Tales By Tom.

This is the ninth installment of Tom Cagley Sr's short shory collections entitled, “Travel At Your Own Risk.”  

Story 17. What happened when we were away from our new home. Previously, I’d moved 8 times. This move from St. Pete back to our new house in Baton Rouge didn’t loom as an issue until I chose the wrong movers and ran into sickness with the packers, a total disregard for time on the part of the movers, an epileptic fit in my front hall, the smashing of a 70-year-old Waterford chandelier, and more. BUT toilet paper saved the day --- at least the next day.

Story 18. Not a dream at all. Simply put, when you go to alter something that God gave you physically, you could make the situation better or you could make it worse. I was hoping for better.

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.
