36 Short Stories, a Cook Book and three major articles for your reading enjoyment and pleasure|
I have taken most of these stories and published under the name "ARLEE". In addition have added over 300 pictures to add to the telling of each story. The book is worth displaying on the coffee table or bed room. ARLEE reads as if it were written but a person a LOT smarter then me. Enjoy.
Depending on my frame of mind and mood caused these stories to not have one thread of commonality through them and are ALL different, so if you don't enjoy one just relax as others may bring a smile or a tear or a nod of the head - To read, Just click on the Bold titles below and sit back and enjoy the journey.

I have had several CAT scans but yesterday my doctor sent me to the hospital for an MRI. Fat dumb and happy me never gave it a second thought as I reported in for my MRI. As soon as I had to take my pants off at the hospital I found out MRIs are different than CATs
Just finished The Da Vinci Code Novel and I had to write this short story to air some of my feelings. The novel was brilliant, well researched and illustrated. I am told it is “Pure Fiction?and it may well be, but I got to tell you, it was one hell of a read.
I tried to say in a story format some things on my mind but not real sure I did that. Somethings seem to always go unsaid because the words are just not there to express a feeling. Not sure if I have found some of those words, but have tried...

The 1 to 5 ratio for large dogs is unfair to humans. I never had a pet. Never missed having to clean up after them and never thought I could care for one... Until I met Max. He is a 94# black lab that thinks he is human. In the evening sitting on the rug in front of the fireplace we play and communicate, I actually understand him as I traveled the world in my youth and speak or understand many languages. I now speak dog and I agree with him that his next life will be as a human boy...
