From the story: After showering, Carol, wearing her short robe, started to leave the bathroom. When she saw the priest busy with a notepad, she quickly shut the door and grabbed the only clothes there – fatigues and a cap. Again leaving the bathroom, to Frank’s startled stare, she remarked, “What’s the matter Frank, didn’t you ever see a lady marine before?” MYSTERIES ABOUND: Why, where, and when did Frank slap Carol? Who got fresh with Mrs. Dempsey on the elevator? Why did Helen’s lipstick melt? What is the sweet stuff Mrs. Telme talks about? Who is Buttercup? What is fishy about the landlord, Ebernese Albatros?

About the author (2009)

I like short stories. And long romances The short story: In this age we have tech messages, microwave ovens, instant replay, jet planes, fast foods, fuel injectors, so I feel there is a bigger need for the short story. I admire the people who can write novels and anthropologies and dictionaries and cook books, but that is not for me, hence these collections of tales. I took a course in creative writing at Middlesex County Collage and the professors there set me straight, straight on this course. I hope you enjoy the book. To please my kids I have included their photos. And long romances. I met my wife Ellie at a dance in November of 1951 just before I had to leave for Germany with the Air Force. After letter writing and longing from oversees, in April 1953, after a fifteen month separation, on returning home we kept our romance alive. In February of 1955 we were married at Saint Joseph's Church in Bayonne, New Jersey. We were blessed with five children and I decided to go into show business. After a few years in show business, I connected with Walter Stone who was Jackie Gleason's head writer. He told me that because the Gleason show was going off the air, he could not hire me. But he wrote me some jokes for my standup act; "My name is Jin Carney and ever since I've been married, I've been trying to break into show business and in that time I've had five kids--my wife's the only one who never turned me down"...and so on.
