Stodghill Says So

An opinionated posting on a variety of subjects by a former newspaper reporter and columnist whose daily column was named best in Indiana by UPI. The Blog title is that used in his high school sports predictions for the Muncie Evening Press.

At the age of 18 I was a 4th Infantry Division rifleman in the invasion of Normandy, then later was called back for the Korean War. Put in a couple of years as a Pinkerton detective. Much of my life was spent as a newspaper reporter, sports writer and daily columnist. Published three books on high school sports in Ohio and Indiana. I write mystery fiction for Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and others. Three books, Normandy 1944 - A Young Rifleman's War, The Hoosier Hot Shots, and From Devout Catholic to Communist Agitator are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. So are four collections of short mysteries: Jack Eddy Stories Volumes 1 and 2, Midland Murders, and The Rough Old Stuff From Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine.

No Mood For Blogging

Life has ganged up on me and I'm in no mood for blogging. Jackie says, "Get over it," and I just wish I could. In an hour I have to leave for the VA Clinic to see the podiatrist because my big toe hurts. To be more accurate, it did hurt. Then last night I stubbed it. Since then it hasn't hurt any more.
Yesterday I had to go to the dentist. For the second time in less than two weeks for the same tooth. It's fine now as long as I don't let anything hot or anything cold get near it. Or just so long as I don't breath so that air gets on it. Or bite on it. Or bend over to take care of my sore toe. Or lean too far back in the recliner. Or go to bed so that it's necessary to lie down. Or touch it with a toothbrush. Or cough or sneeze or anything else that might disturb it. Other than that it's just fine.
Then there's the new and improved Blogger. With the old, unimproved Blogger I could call it up and be blogging away in ten seconds. Now with the new and improved version it takes three minutes. That makes it almost as good as my recent upgrade to Internet Explorer 7. There was nothing wrong with the old Internet Explorer 6 but now that I'm upgraded to 7 I can't call up an attachment to an e-mail without being disconnected from the internet. I can't hit an X to get rid of something without being disconnected from the internet. In fact I can hardly do a damn thing without being disconnected from the internet.
I'm really thrilled about all the improvements and upgrades in my world. Yes sir I am. First Internet Explorer and Blogger and then yesterday my tooth was upgraded. Today my big toe gets upgraded. God but I long for the old days back in 2006.
But that's the way it goes. Life is hard and then you die.

You won't find anything more about the joy in my world, but visit:
