    Joanie, is the title "Survivor Type" by Stephen King?? I absolutely loved that short story.

    Hi Graycat. I looked up that King story and it looks like it was published first in 1982 which would be after I (and dirt) had graduated high school. But I can't find the one I'm thinking of by searching key words.

    LOL Gwamma. I loved his books when he first gained notoriety. Then (and I don't blame him for doing it), it seemed like he was writing a book every 15 minutes. Still, Carrie and The Shining (the Jack Nicholas version) were both terrific books and pretty well adapted to movies. Christine and Cujo were pretty good books, but the movies sucked.

    Gwamma - the May cruise in Alaska is a crap shoot. It could be 50F and rainy or 70F and sunny. We went a few years ago and had sun everyday, the very next week it was rainy and foggy everyday. You'll love the trip regardless, amazing country.

    Indiana will be beautiful! I really love May, it should be 70s or higher most days. Beautiful spring weather, later in the month starts feeling more summery.

    Give us a shout if you'll be anywhere near Indianapolis!

    Stanley Park! Gastown. Get a day trip over to Victoria on Vancouver Island and enjoy sailing past the San Juan Islands....sigh. Capilano, which is on the way to Grouse Mountain.

    I especially liked the part where he broke through the door with his nine iron.

    Probably different all over; in jersey the rule is to suspend your use of judgment and to wait sheepishly regardless of circumstances whenever one has the Stop sign arm out.

    When I went to school we all had to walk to one of a few different bus stops dotting the neighborhood. Now around here they roll up to each individual door of the kids on it- you can get stuck for one for 30 minutes on a mile of road.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
