  1. February 6, 1801 Kiryanovo Usadba St. Petersburg, Russia “I had not expected last night would be so much fun,” Stroganov said. He had shown Granger that he was just as fun as the one being penetrated as the one doing the penetrating. For Granger, plunging into Stroganov’s soft, pliable ass had been one of his more memorable sexual experiences. “I thought you said my reputation had preceded me,” Granger joked. While the sex had been good, he had felt a bond developing with Stroganov. It may have been based on their sexual compatibility, or it may have been based on t

  2. Chapter Twenty – Moments In Time Mason began rubbing the back of his head and grimaced. Now, what the hell could he say in his defense? He didn’t believe for one moment that confessing to having have talked to Toby all this time was the wise decision. So, a lie had to do as much as he hated it. “It’s hard for me to admit --” he started, but his tongue became cloyed with guilt. Rhys’s eyes were on him; Mason didn’t have to look to know. Ah, damn it, why did it have to be so hard? He had promised himself to be honest in all his dealings, and he had told Rhys he wouldn’t lie to him.

  3. At school, whenever I saw Dave, he was with Angie. They ate lunch together, they walked to classes together, and it was sad. To not be with the person you love except at school is terrible. I thought about what I’d do if that were Donnie and me. I saw Tim and his boyfriend, Lou, at lunch. Donnie and I sit with them, and sometimes the subject we discussed was a little embarrassing. How do you explain the feelings you have when you and your partner are intimate. These are feeling that you only expressed to your partner. Tim said that there was no one else to help them, and since we were resp

  4. Our vacation was over. We had to get ready for college, requiring us to find a place to stay. Dad had a friend, actually, a client who lived close to the college we were going to attend. He told Dad he had a spare bedroom we could use, but I didn’t want that. You would be sharing with another family, and that could be complicated. Donnie and I drove over to the college and began to check places out. Most were rentals for students, were only for nine months. We wanted something a little more permanent. We were sitting in a coffee shop one afternoon, looking through a paper for rentals. Our

  5. Sidney was dumbfounded. In a matter of less than two weeks he had gone from being a shy priest in a suburban parish in North Carolina to having accepted a position in an historic church in Philadelphia. While he was still processing this information, two happy people were playing with their breakfast food at the corner café. Sean was ecstatic and his enthusiasm was infectious to Clay. The little boy was giggling and playing games with Sean. Sean was enjoying the games as much as his nephew. The café was not busy this weekday morning and many of the customers were getting “to go” food and drink

  6. "I think I understand now where my other self went," Charlie said, on the drive back. Everyone had been silent, reviewing the things they had learned. "You went to see where the guests came from," Ricky said, from the back seat. "To see what they escaped from. At least, that's what I'm thinking now." Charlie nodded. "My first guess was another planet, but now I don't think that. My other self has a good feel for going, if that means anything to you." Horace glanced at him. "Going?" "Yes. I don't actually travel through space, for instance. I go through something else, and re-em

"I have no proof," Charlie said. He looked at his friends, and smiled, and then let his gaze go back to Horace. "Fortunately, you're the only one I have to convince." "Oh, my, but you have." The ghost hunter gave a gentle nod of his head. "I have learned to trust the sight, Charlie. I am listening to it now, and it is telling me you speak the truth." Charlie smiled. "Well, that helps." Ricky frowned at him. "I f

  8. Diary of a Lost Kid By Wesley Lewis Chapter 23 Entry 68 So when I write in this diary there are lots of things I write about. But there’s stuff I don’t write about too. When I said Dr. Hawk was full of shit I was lying. I do have abandonment issues. And when I finally admitted it to myself and to him he told me the best thing to do would be to write about it. So this one will be about it. I know I’ve written some about my parents and foster homes, but Doc thinks it will help if I write more about it so here’s hoping it does.

  9. During the following week, Joshie and Benny were getting more and more excited about the haunted house and wanted to know if there was anything else they could do. Over the next few days, I gave them several minor tasks to perform and then I thought of something else they could do. On Friday, I asked Benny to get the clothes he’d worn the previous year when he was the scarecrow. I had him put them in the rec room, and after dinner, I had both boys ride with me to the farm of a family friend so we could collect a few items we would need. When we returned, I had Joshie and Benny help me carry th

There’s a creaking floorboard, so they’ll know if he leaves my room for Angie’s.” “Yes, you can stay, you know that is our bed, not my bed. I can’t believe Dave and Angie haven’t shared their love yet.” “I didn’t say that. I said they’ll know if he leaves my room. I think Mom suspects it, but not all parents are like yours. It’s a bigger risk for girls, and if Dave and Angie don’t end up together, her next boyfriend will be upset, she didn’t save her virginity for him. So Mom and Dad don

  11. Well happy Candy Hangover Day!!! If you partook in Halloween last night that is. I guess all day yesterday I wore a mask a lot of day, but not a scary one Talking with some friends, they said they bought the same amount of Halloween Candy this year, knowing full well that they would probably have less than 10 percent of the usual trick or treaters. The reason? They felt they could eat all the candy they wanted and not feel guilty and not worry about running out before the end of the night So what about you, any thing special happen last night in your neck of the woods?

  14. Trick or Treat report for 2020, the year of the pandemic: Last night we had less than two dozen little trick or treaters approach our porch and help themselves to the candy in the bowl we set out. In forty-five years of living in this house, it was the lowest number ever. And it was a nice night with temps in the 50's and only a slight wind.

  15. Lord Baldric let his Lynxian settle down and helped clean him off after the rather frightful and unsettling illusion of Babica Preja had spooked the boy so thoroughly. Some of that alarm, which Baldric noted with some amusement, was also flavored with awe at how Baldric could stand in front of such a being without showing an ounce of fear. While he had helped the lad settle his nerves, Kotik had even voiced the question as to how he could be so fearless. Baldric beamed and ruffled the cat boy’s ears. “I see you are taken in by my performance again my sweet!” He knelt down at the desk K

  20. Good morning! It's a rainy, windy, dreary start to November. I had one group of trick or treaters last night. I don't generally get a lot, but was glad I bought candy for them. A good friend of mine came over for dinner and stayed the night. I made pumpkin chili in the crockpot, and peanut butter brownies for dessert. We chatted quite a bit and watched a creepy movie. I got up early and made pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. She headed off to work, so now I'm relaxing until my mom comes over around 10:00 to do some more house stuff.

  21. As usual Geron, it was a wonderful story with a happy ending. The house and its guests are safe. I do wish the feelings of joy and happiness were shared beyond just the occupants of the house. Wouldn't that be nice? I'm glad we'll be seeing Horace again. Boy, is he in for surprises!

  28. Wow, just so much in this chapter. Granger has meet the Tsarevich, who history agrees okayed the overthrow of his father, if not his actual death. I wonder if he will turn him into another admirer; wouldn't want Prinny to get upset however. Granger is always able to present just the perfect front for any occasion. He seems to understand what both those above and below him in the social order needs from him in any situation. I find the request for conversion to the Orthodox faith strange. Tsar Paul I of Russia was never noted to be a particularly religious man. He was much more int

  29. That's a good question. I could say that she married a cousin, also named Ravishaw, and retained the name. Much more common back then than it is now. Or, she could have simply reverted to being known as Mrs. Ravishaw after the death of her husband. Or, I could simply have made a boo boo and didn't think of that whole issue somehow, and you caught me. But the cousin answer seems the more likely one!

  33. My guess is -- she married a second or third cousin who had the same last name. I knew some music teachers from college who married each other and their last names were the same (for illustration, I will use the name Johnson). So his name, in the illustration, was John; hers was Jane. So her name became "Jane Johnson Johnson."

  34. Well, we have Charles and Richard with their formal names. And Adrian would seem to be fairly obvious that his name is most likely Adrian. I know Kippy has been called Kip, Kipper, and Kippy -- According to my research, Kip is often used as a nickname for Kipling or Christopher or Kipper or Kyp or the old English place name Kipp. But it has also been used as a nickname for someone whose initials spell KIP, such as American model and actor Kevin Ian Pardue. It has been used as a nickname for the Kenyan first name Kipkoech, for the odd first names Kippernicus and Kipapotimus, and for some re

None of them will ever reveal the secrets of the house, so the occupants are perfectly safe. With the promise of further adventure, we have plenty to look forward to from Charlie and friends.

  39. Good morning, Val! And the same to everyone else. Yesterday, because I couldn't get out to buy candy, I baked a large batch of my world famous chocolate chip cookies. Just in case the parents of any of the local kids allowed them to go trick or treating under the current social distancing restrictions, I left a plateful of them inside the front door to hand out if they came knocking. I'm not sure whether it was because of the current lockdown, or because of Storm Aidan crossing Ireland yesterday bringing strong winds and heavy rain (probably a combination of both those facts),

I'm not sure whether it was because of the current lockdown, or because of Storm Aidan crossing Ireland yesterday bringing strong winds and heavy rain (probably a combination of both those facts), but I didn't have a single trick or treater knock on the door. I can't eat all the cookies myself, so will pass the most of them on to a friend who has kids with sweet teeth. And I'm hoping it was just a typo, oth

She is a direct descendant of Charles Ravishaw and knew the house from birth. She has children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. How is Mrs. Ravishaw still Mrs. Ravishaw? How and why does she retain her maiden name?

The Tale of Ambrogio, The Undying From the scriptures of Delphi Translated from the Ancient Tongue into the Greek 🌙 In the lands to the West, where the Ancient Etruscans once made for themselves a great civilisation, there was born a son of Italy named Ambrogio. As a lad, he became known for his bravery and intrepid ways. He took after his father and became a hunter of some note in his lands. His pioneering ways and wanderlust only grew as he did and as he rose to handsome manhood the fences of his boundaries widened. Never taking to wife, he became an adventurer and
