“Please leave a message after the tone”

I’m standing here at my kitchen counter, grating some REALLY good “Ensenada Smoothie”, loading my handmade “Driftwood” pipe that I made a few years ago from a piece of very hard, well no, “Hard Enough, (as in what Susie said to me last night) gnarly twisted, piece of driftwood that I found in 1995 (24 years ago) on the beach directly in front of my beach pad on Silverstrand Beach in Ventura County, California.

As I’m now loading my home-made driftwood pipe, I say to my friend on the other side of the kitchen counter chopping something, “This is my Operating Room”. Then I instantly turn that thought into a Doctor’s Message on his Answering Machine and Cell Phone……..

BEEP!!!!! “Howdy, this is Dr. Saxe, I am either currently in surgery, at a Dodger game and I have my cellphone off, or I might be sleeping, or I might be taking a shit, so leave a message at the sound of the beep. I promise that I will return your call. If you need surgery, and you are “Price Shopping”, PRESS ONE FOR LIVER REMOVAL, PRESS TWO FOR FOOT SURGERY, PRESS THREE FOR INGROWN TOENAIL REMOVAL, PRESS FOUR FOR A HEART TRANSPLANT, PRESS FIVE FOR PENIS EXTENSION OR REMOVAL (if you currently are in the process of changing your sex, “From Male TO Female”, PRESS SIX IF YOU WANT TO HAVE YOUR PET DOG, CAT OR SPOUSE SPAYED OR NEUTERED, PRESS SEVEN TO RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU. Thank you, I will get back to you shortly with a “No Frills Cost Estimate”. BEEP!!!!

For my faithful readers that are aware that I’m finally working on “The Dead Armadillo” story, like say, a Producer, or a Director, or a Screenwriter or someone or a company that desires to option my novel, you can contact me at any time, night or day. If you are a one of those faithful readers that wish to read and follow my progress as I work on this novel, I will be posting updates as a PDF file on every new post on this website/blog. Here’s the latest of “The Dead Armadillo”


For those of you that would care to get involved with me on this project, as I intend to hire a professional screenwriter at some point, and produce a feature film, I have recently been approved for a KICKSTARTER campaign where you can contribute. Here is the link to the KICKSTARTER campaign.

For those of you that have enjoyed reading my posts and pages, and would like to make a small donation in support of my writing efforts, I have now set up a PayPal account for you to contribute $1 or so, or you can send some homemade Venison Jerky or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups , your donation is 100% tax deductible. The preceding request for donations has always been my half-hearted attempt to make a little money from my writing. A few friends/relatives HAVE sent small donations, I even received some really good Venison Jerky one time from my Cousin Barry. No Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups yet however. I now add that IF you are like-minded and in agreement with this post, please donate to the cause. The monies will be used for things like hiring a professional web designer for the itad-nao website, and related needs. Thank you very much.
