It’s one of those days. Couldn’t come up with a blasted thing for this post. It wasn’t for a lack of ideas; oh no! Ideas were flooding my little brain in cascading rivulets. Ideas were bouncing off each other. They collided to form new Stephen King-ish ideas.  They all just looked so good! I was like a kid in the worlds biggest candy shop. I just couldn’t choose one. See what happens when I can’t settle on a subject? I end up with a big ol’ jar of Nothing! Not the bargain, or generic brand either; nosiree, that’s the brand name jar of Nothing.


Good Lord willing, and the creek don’t rise, I’ll have some kind of rag for you to chew on come Monday. Meanwhile, happy Friday to you all! See y’all!

About Ol' Big Jim

Ol' Big Jim, has been a storekeeper, an embalmer, a hospital orderly, a medical biller, and through it all, a teller of tall tales. Many of his stories, like his first book, New Yesterdays, are set in his hometown of Piedmont, Alabama. For seven years, he lived in the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Amman, Jordan where he spends his time trying to visit each one of the thousands of Ammani coffee shops and scribbling in his ever-present notebook. These days, you can find him back stateside, still filling notebooks.
