I Need Advice…

Posted by Les Becker on September 30, 2008 in Short Fiction, Writing |

I don’t know whom to credit for this fabulousness, but I “stumbled” upon it HERE. Shame I can’t get much of anything else out of the site… I’ve been busy, busy of late. Writing more – and posting more often, which actually seems to work against me, as far as interaction from my readers, so […]

The Chamber Pot

Posted by Les Becker on September 29, 2008 in It Helps If the Whole Family Is Crazy, Oh Mother...! |

The 1998 Version of My Aunt Blanche… No, really, let’s compare, shall we? If only to piss off my daughter – who tells me she’ll kill me if I post this, but then laughs out loud when she looks at this photo of herself, so I think I’m all good… Tell me that’s not eerie… […]

The Day the Earth Stood Still…

Posted by Les Becker on September 25, 2008 in Other People's Stories..., Real Life |

A couple of months back, I was invited to dinner by a friend: a 6’4 cook I worked with at The House of Fracas, my temporary placement, the first J.O.B. (and so far, only) in my brand new field, after I was out of school. This invitation was a long time coming. He kept inviting […]
