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.

Thanks, whoever you are

Yesterday, Fathers Day, someone sent me a Hallmark e-card. Sad to say, when I click on ". . .open here" I get a message saying it doesn't work.
How can I thank someone or think kind thoughts about them when I don't know who they are? Now I may get messages from three or four people saying they sent the card.
The point of this is to make whoever sent it aware that I am not an ungrateful, insensitive clod. I may be a clod but I'm a thoughtful clod.
I did notice one thing about the message saying I had received a card: Hallmark does not know how to spell "received." Other than that morale booster the experience has been a washout. The moral of the story is never trust anything beginning with e-.
