Congrats on Pieces of Morgan McFinn (Minus a Toe or Two)
OOps, that wasn't really a subtitle was it? My bad.
P.S. I'm tagging and liking it anyway.

I'm imagining a series akin to Gilligan's Island but not quite as err... goofy. We shall call it Island McFinn.

I am still making my way through Out of the Loop but looking forward to this book as well.

A pure joy ride. I loved this book. It made me want to read A LOT more of Morgan McFinn. I was just trying to relocate my copy and I can't seem to find it. I probably lent it to someone... I'm going to order another copy! I want to read it again.

Great read, looking forward to the next one.

Much enjoyed. I've had several mentors and close friends who I shared with. Two of them are very good writers.
I've been not writing well lately myself. I guess that's why I'm writing so much about people I've known just to keep writing.
I haven't written yet about my very good friend, Vitoon Upathamp, or have I? Another very good writer.
Legends of Thailand...Jim Thompson & John Fowler (Short Story) - 5/10/2013 2:34:53 AM
I agree with Phillips -- Morgan McFinn should write the story of John Fowler. Who'd have more passion?
Robert Lax & The New Yorker Magazine (Short Story) - 5/10/2013 2:27:51 AM
very cool rememberance
Legends of Thailand...Jim Thompson & John Fowler (Short Story) - 5/8/2013 4:48:26 AM
Great story, Morgan. I think you've identified the person best qualifed to write the Jim Thompson/John Fowler story--Morgan McFinn. I recall a couple of incidents of how the Thais settle their scores with those who won't see things their way. As I recall they will meet up with you in the dead of night perhaps 15 of them. They come back, you don't.

Witty, engaging, and humorous as always; well done, Morgan. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace to you,
A Drama in Augusta (Short Story) - 4/10/2013 5:36:52 AM
Simply love it. A great shot at the men who chase little white balls from half a world away with time zone warp! By force (I can't hold a golf club) I have never played golf, although I have followed my father around the course, picking up stray golf balls in the rough until the course management banned me from the course. All of my brothers are hooked on the game, as was my father after he picked it up at 60 years old.
When I was at Atlanta University, our $1 a year dean of the graduate school of business, an old fuddy-duddy former CEO of Trust Company Bank, had a passion for the Masters and was dutifully at Augusta every year. It was interesting that he was a white man as dean of a predominantly black university when he spent all those years as an esteemed member of a golf course dedicated to restricting membership to “whites only.”
Along comes Tiger Woods, Bangkok born, and changes all that. Bravo!
A Drama in Augusta (Short Story) - 4/9/2013 1:26:01 PM
I laughed so hard I nearly spilled my spatlese. As a hacker at golf, a lover of wit, and a sucker for a story that teases my sense of humor more than 4 times, I commend you for this important contribution to the genre few have ever captured--the funny side of truth.
A Drama in Augusta (Short Story) - 4/9/2013 8:51:30 AM
"And anyone who has ever tried to explain to his spouse why he reeks of an unfamiliar scent, knows perfectly well what unplayable lies are all about." Now that's one fantastic line -- good job, Morgan.
A Travesty of Western Justice (Short Story) - 4/5/2013 9:36:16 AM
Thanks for the history lesson. I hope Duch was pronounced Douche.
A Travesty of Western Justice (Short Story) - 4/5/2013 8:00:01 AM
Thanks for the, “heads up!” I didn't even know the trial took place, although I'm very familiar with the atrocity. I think one of the reasons we didn't step in was because what had happened in Vietnam. It is strange that it was eventually the Vietnamese that put an end to the Khmer Rouge atrocities.
It is also a travesty the amount of money that's spent in foreign aid to dictators trying to maintain the status: instead of supporting democratic governments for the people in so many countries around the world. This guilt ridden trial is just another example of how the people in money stay in money by helping their buddies out with extravagant expenditures in making The Ugly American seem very archaic, indeed.

I always appreciate and enjoy you wit and humour, Morgan. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace,
Love Letters in Flower (Short Story) - 3/27/2013 5:10:47 PM
Nice to read you back, so to speak. I hope this isn't current autobiography.
A Tribute to Fred Astaire (Short Story) - 1/24/2013 9:45:01 AM
A fine and respectful tribute, Morgan; you have given me inclination to do a little bit more "research" on Mr. Astaire. Thank you. Love and all good things,
A Tribute to Fred Astaire (Short Story) - 12/30/2012 7:30:00 PM
A really nice tribute to mr. Astaire. BTW, it's not New Rear's Eve here yet, Morgan.

You make a lot of sense in this essay, Morgan. Thank you for sharing you philosophical perspective. Be well, friend.

As usual, I really enjoy your style. I think that we, at AD, are really fortunate to have you share your "stuff." Thank you, Morgan. Love, peace, and my very best sentiments,
Anger (Short Story) - 11/10/2012 3:40:08 PM
possibly a subtle political message lodged between the anger and the hate, but then again...perhpas just a simplier view of the world?
as usual, a super write-strong and biting!
The Topography of Pornography (Short Story) - 10/31/2012 9:24:58 AM
As I have stated before, I love your sense of humor and your satirical wit, Morgan.
This sentence does not seem "right" to me: "...if I did, they’d being wearing clothes so I wouldn’t recognize anyway."
I always appreciate it when others point out my typos and such because I often make some and, for some reason, I don't see them myself until someone else points them out.
Thank you for sharing. Best regards,
Anger (Short Story) - 10/26/2012 6:22:24 PM
So well done and well shared as your usual through your wit, Morgan. Thank you. Love and peace,
The Itch... (Short Story) - 10/26/2012 6:15:40 PM
For some reason, AD stopped notifying me when you posted. I have missed your unique style and your most interesting sharings. Thank you, Morgan. Love and peace to you,

Where is the damn like button on here? ;)

Nice treatise, Morgan, good job. Wish I could laugh about our presidential election.
The Topography of Pornography (Short Story) - 10/12/2012 3:33:36 PM
your quirky dry humor reads loud and clear here. even with "such" a sensitive topic as this...i loved it...your stories make me smile, inspite of myself! another fabo story-
My Favorite Government Hand-Out... (Short Story) - 10/7/2012 4:25:54 PM
Super piece...simple, basic, and honest. For me, economic truth (or understanding) is not the "conundrum," its the stupidity of seemingly educated people! Loved this writing-
The Itch... (Short Story) - 9/14/2012 5:01:14 PM
Again i read your works with such pleasure, but for my next read of yours...i will anchor myself to a bottle of beer. i can't inmagine that it would make for improvements, and hope i don't humiliate myself as i already i laugh loudly while reading. another fun read! thanks so much
