The Old Guy … In My Opinion

The Lost Manuscripts (or embarrassments) …

I was surprised. Cleaning out the remaining storage bins in the basement, I discovered two unfinished manuscripts. Both of the neatly bound mint condition finds were around one hundred pages in length. Over the years I had forgotten them, the story lines and the considerable investment of time devoted to their creation. Upon closer examination, I found one manuscript needed to be burned, the ashes run over by a truck and the remains, not carried off by the wind immediately buried in an undisclosed grave of my choosing. It was an embarrassment to thumb through to say the least. Thankfully, there is no e-file evidence of its horrid existence, The manuscript documented quite a few of my younger, entergetic and certainly indiscreet years. The other one, I could work with maybe, but only if I could get back in it. To do that means typing it back into the computer one page at a time. A serious investment in late night time usually devoted to writing poetry, blog posts and working up the days photographs. Since it is the Winter Season, I just might poke that hay pile with a long stick and see what runs out the other side …

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

  1. What a wonderful discovery! I’m particularly interested in the one that must be burned. 🙂

    • Oh Ms Danica … youthful indiscretions from over fifty years ago even touching foreign countries across the oceans. To validate to some that I am indeed a rake and scoundrel in sheep’s clothing suitable and deserving to be locked out in the cold with no avenue of redress or mercy … I am no longer of the past having found a wonderful woman who loved me and set me on the straight and narrow path … I am now a tired, but well behaved, Old Guy living in what has been described by a friend overseas as a “Quiet Place”. It is. It is so quiet here I often have to scrape the rust off my shoes. g

  2. I’m interested in how the hay pile experiment turn out…does it work on bad paintings?

  3. I think I would like to read about the younger years…. I may learn what really occurred on Wilshire Rd……

    • Everything in the manuscripts was “after” Wilshire Road. Maybe we were too young to get into much mischief. The instances were Navy days (during and after) in the 60’s & early 70’s. Believe me, I have tested the deep waters of public embarrassment enough and do not need the manuscript to see the light of day. thank you for your kind comment. g

  4. John, you MUST invest in a scanner! Scan those pages in, edit, and then finish the novel! The library may even have a scanner. I look forward to reading the finished story!
