Stories
Over the years I’ve posted a few autobiographical stories (more coming), some with collections of images.

It really is a small world
India has over a billion people in it. Warren, Connecticut (where I live) has 1300 people in it. I can’t say more without blowing the surprise of this story but I don’t think you’ll be sorry you read it.

“The basement’s dampness eventually overtook the table and time eventually overtook both my father and Irving and once the house is gone all that will be left will be a story.” This is that story.

Irving’s Tally-Ho Playing Cards
“For me, the cards represent numerous games that Irving tried to teach me as a kid and which I could not get and so, could not play. Sometimes I’d run out of the sun room crying feeling so stupid that I didn’t get the simplest card games and Irving’s wife, Hope would march in and give him hell for making me cry. He never meant to and he never tried to intimidate anyone, let alone a little kid.”

    1. Oliver, thank you very much for digging around. This is one of the liabilities of posting back dated things when many folks are tracking new posts only, some not on the site but via RSS only or via WordPress’ “reader.”

      Anyway, I’ve been adding to this page as a way to help people explore older content, or, all content based on tags.

      Thanks again for poking around and please know that some older posts need some formatting work as they broke when I switched to this newer theme.

      Lastly, thank you for reading (English) here and I only wish I knew German so I could take in more of what you’re posting.

  1. Your curated posts is a great idea. I moved from Blogger over to WordPress in April of last year, and had a miserable time with it. The pre-migration content has been chopped down to a fraction of its former size, but it still gives me fits when working with it. I think I’ll just winnow the old posts down to an even smaller “curated” number and call it a day.

    Thanks for the idea, and you have excellent work here.

    1. MItch: I had to move your comment, you had replied to my reply to Oliver and I think you meant to just post a comment at the top level. Unfortunately when I moved it my gravatar stuck to it. Sorry.

      Thanks for commenting here and know that I’ll be happy to help you with your site in any way that I can.

      I created this curated posts page because the options for a decent archives area in this particular theme are terrible, as they seem to be in many of the wordpress themes that one gets with a hosted account.

      I had much better options for archives when I was self-hosting but I really do not want to go back to that.

      At some point I’d like to get rid of the entire footer area and just have a tab or a few tabs at the top of the site for search and archives but I’ve not figured out how to do that within this theme. It may be impossible without modifying the theme, which I could do but I’d rather not as that makes upgrades from the theme author awkward.

      When I moved from my self-hosted site I had over 6000 posts and this version of wordpress will not import that much content, so, I did it in stages. I still have about 3000 posts in a private hosted site to move over here. Well, not all of it will get moved but maybe half as I cull through it when I make time for it.

      I’m hoping to have that done in a year or two.

      Good luck with your site and know that I’m following along…
