  1. I’m getting more worried now, Laura. All this ‘being chosen’, and ‘being the best’. Disturbing indeed.
    Good details again this week. The train was just right, and the dark creepy room was very well-rendered.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. When you talked about “riding the rails,” I was reminded immediately of the most recent song lyrics I’ve written (Nov. 10, 2016). The song is entitled, “The Railroad Drifter.” I’ll publish the lyrics, most likely, later this month on my Facebook page, and on my blog as well. Meanwhile, your story gets more intriguing all the time!

    1. lividemerald2013, thank you so very much for your comments on my story. There are only two parts left…

      Do you also sing along with writing song lyrics? That is so awesome.. I’m looking forward to reading those. As for Pope on the Dole, I’ve just a little more to read before finishing, but I’ve had to spend most of my free time working on the illustrations for the short story. Quite a few of them lately have taken days to complete..

      I look forward to writing a review for you on Amazon, and emailing you when I’ve finished. As a writer of sorts myself, I know you’re probably wondering what I think.. So, be sure to know this has been a great read for me as I knew it would be from the link to the book and reading the jacket so to speak…

      the line riding the rails, was from my own personal history of my grandmother and I taking the train from Florida to Iowa to visit my great-grand-mother many times during school breaks. I had such an endearing love for trains because of this time shared with her and the soothing motion of the train rocking us to sleep in the compartment with the curtain swinging back and fourth… Memories are true treasures. So, this explains why I’m excited to read your up and coming lyrics The Railroad Drifter… Have a wonderful weekend my friend out West… Take care, Laura

      1. Laura, I’m thrilled that you are enjoying “Pope on the Dole.” Had Johnny Cash not sung a song entitled “Riding the Rails,” that would have been the title of my song! I’ll make sure you are alerted to the publishing of the lyrics. My involvement in music is limited to writing lyrics. So far, I’ve only published lyrics for songs that have been professionally recorded (and all but one released on CD or vinyl). You can read them at: https://www.facebook.com/LividEmerald/. I’ve written lyrics to nearly thirty more songs, but they are to be marketed to recording studios and/or artists on a new Chris Almoada / LividEmerald joint Facebook page which we hope to launch later this month. Once this occurs, I’ll publish the lyrics and note that they are in search of a home, so to speak.

        As for trains, my first ever experience was riding a train from Kansas City, MO to Chicago, IL. It was a 6th Grade field trip, and it involved visiting the Adler Planetarium and the Field Museum of Natural History. The only other train I’ve ridden in the U.S. (in the past ten years) was at the Laws Railroad Museum in California. Here’s the link, as I think you’ll find the museum fascinating (I’ve visited twice): https://www.lawsmuseum.org/exhibits.htm. Of course, here in Las Vegas, I’ve ridden the monorails, but I’m not sure that counts….

        In France, I’ve taken several RER lines that link Paris to its many peripheral suburbs, a number of typical passenger trains (to various destinations all over the country), the super fast TGV, and even a narrow gauge train through a dense forest (en route to Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil in the Périgord). I’ve also taken the train in Spain from the French border to Llançà (where I camped on the coast), Figueres (Salvador Dalí museum), and Barcelona (Sagrada Familia). As you know, the trains in Spain stall mainly on the plain. But, fortunately, my train just kept on chugging…..

        I’m looking forward to the final two episodes of The Weary Traveler!
