Writer's Talk

I don't really have a lot to talk about today, but I'm hoping something will come up.   I'm reminded of the anecdote about the famous, heavy drinking humorist, Robert Benchley.   Someone had told him that whenever writer's block reared it's ugly head he should go to the typewriter, insert crisp, pristine sheets of paper, type "The", and words would start to flow.   Next morning, a hung over Benchley arose, staggered to his typewriter, put in crisp, pristine sheets of paper, typed "The", glared at his effort for a few minutes, then typed "hell with it!" and went back to bed.    Maybe I'll go back to bed.              Mike
