As events in my story spin out of control due to, among other factors, stock market crashes, promises abrogated, people thieving, trolls gorging, sump pumps overflowing, and patents ever renewed, the Bernard Olcott Story is taking a break for a while.
The end point to this Phase One of the Story will be November 1995. I have been building up to it for 3 years now. We’re just about there. I’ve got one story written, another one started, and the end in sight.
I mentioned “Phase One.” Is there a Phase Two? Yes, there is. Phase Two covers my Dad’s last 10 years. It wasn’t not easy to deal with a declining patriarch. Luckily, Phase One concludes with me in a fortified, protected position.
And Phase Three? As Dick Martin used to say, “you bet your sweet bippy!” Phase Three covers the period after Dad’s passing and it is just about as bizarre as you can imagine. You could say that I am still in Phase Three. Hopefully, this part of the story will end with equity for all.

UPDATE April 13, 2018: I am taking a longer time to consider the next batch of stories — which I intend to be the finale. When all 5 (or so) stories are completed, I’ll give notice that the series will resume.
