    I would love to have a time calibrator of my own. I'd have my business day feel like ten minutes and my free time feel like hours, instead of the other way around as it is now!

    I had to look up that bit of Brit slang. I suspect you're right. It would make one look like a cockwomble, no question! 🙂

    Thank you. Um...I haven't really considered what might happen if someone peed INSIDE a suit. I'll ask Nyf and get back to you!

    The best part of alien supertech is the imagination factor. It's fun to imagine what we might do with it if we had it here. Saturday nights would certainly NOT be boring!
  5. Well, now it's official. The boy's are courtin'! Sure, it was worth waiting for. It always is in your stories, Gary. What's left? Three chapters? A sequel may be needed. But I'll wait until I get to the end before I know for sure. Maybe TWO sequels.

    Chapter 3

    Wow. Ethan is in a tough spot. This family sounds on the brink of disintegration. He needs to be careful, or perhaps become a casualty. Mr. Jameson sounds like he's made up his mind he's his own worst problem, but has no way to deal with it but to take it out on others. The kids are jockeying for fight or flight spots, and Mrs. Jameson just wants to hold it all together somehow. And then there's still Jonathan... Good story. I'm slowly getting through it. Worth coming back for!

    I deliberately left that up to the reader's imagination! Prehensile penises? How come YOU aren't writing fiction?

    Nyf would be able to intercept any form of communication that impinges upon him as radio frequency, or which he could tap into using any of several nefarious methods which we will not go into here.

    Good question. Yes, the first two stories took place in the same summer. If I had been smart, I would have continued in that vein, and not have to now try to explain how much time has passed. Really, no appreciable time SHOULD have passed. I think when I was writing this story I was just thinking of the current time of the year, and didn't consider the problem with that. This is what happens when you are trying to keep track of a lot of characters and story lines. Now, how to fix it? Hmm. Nyf has his own sensors and can use them to see and hear what is going on around him, as well as

    Uh oh. You're asking important questions? 🙂 Actually, a number of people have brought up the boy's home lives, and how their adventures might affect them. I haven't addressed that yet, exactly. I haven't decided if an entire story should be written around that aspect, or whether I can simply illustrate their home lives a little at a time in each story to give a broader picture. Still thinking about that. I have other series I am writing on, and other stories in the works, and don't even know when I'll get to the next installment of this one. Artificial lifeforms could be great friend

    I would say yes, that the translators will allow the guys to read the labels on the cans in their home mound. It hasn't come up yet, though. Haha. Having Nyf go back to earth with the guys seems a popular idea. I'll have to work that into the next installment. I'm curious about how you discovered this series. Most readers of my stories have become regulars, and friends. You are a new voice, right out of the blue! 🙂

    Thanks. You're a fast reader!

    Hi, Dave! It's never too late around here! Pleased that you enjoyed the first story. Maybe the others will appeal to you as well. Very nice comments. Great way to end the day! Thank you! --Geron

    Yep. Probably just confuse poor Nyf. "How come there are two different translations to everything, Derry?" "Well, one is Google, and one is Microsoft." "Does that mean something special?" "THEY think it does!"

    There is no timeline for reading anything! I am months behind others in reading a few stories here, myself!

    One last thought, eloquently shared!

    Chapter 13

    I believe I read or heard that same tale once. I absolutely cannot imagine a soldier being able to identify another one at shooting distance unless he had first known him beforehand. In fact... I researched this story a little, and here is an article in the BBC that tends to throw doubt that the action ever really occurred. It looks like Hitler deliberately stoked this story to increase his own reputation that he had 'been spared for greater things'. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-28593256

    That's sad, CG. I may have to address the issue of Cally's parents. These are different times, and kids have a much better shot at parental acceptance. But a lot comes down to personality and self-image of the parents. Some things cannot be gotten past. I have no idea how many more stories I can do in this series. Certainly not a million! 🙂

    I like it. I'll have to see what I can do with the idea. Thanks!

    Chapter 2

    You're right, CG. The boys could not pass through the door to the frozen world in the mound on granddad Mike's farm. That was because the destination was in a state that would have been fatal to them. However, if they were clad in the protective suits, the Door would deem it safe to allow them to pass.🙂 I am with you on huge bodies of water. I like the lakes here to swim in, and some are very large. I have been on ships at sea, and that doesn't bother me. The ocean is beautiful. But I do not want to swim in it, especially out of sight of shore. I am a land creature by birth! I also c

    I do remember that Lang was forced out of Germany in the thirties, and helmed a number of pictures with a distinctly anti-Nazi bent. He was of the German expressionist film-making school, and use b/w to great effect in his movies. His early sci-fi silent masterpiece, Metropolis, is still highly regarded today. His film Fury, starring Spencer Tracy, is still one of the more harrowing accounts of mob violence. Some extremely fine films were made in the black and white era, without today's special effects, that rely on story, setting, and acting ability to tell a tale. :) 🎥

    Chapter 13

    Yes. And there's an old movie I saw once, called Manhunt, where Walter Pidgeon plays a big game hunter who stalks Hitler, gets him in his sights, and pulls the trigger...on an empty chamber. He just did it for the thrill of hunting the biggest game of all. But then he has second thoughts, loads up, and is about to pull the trigger again when he's spotted by a Nazi guard. The second shot goes wild, and the opportunity is missed. But it could have easily been done, especially in pre-war days, when this story took place. The idea of security was very different back then. You have to wo

    You amaze me sometimes, the way you seem to dig out my secrets! But I won't say anything about Brik for now. We'll leave that for a future adventure! Thanks for joining the guys on their journey.
