  1. Aha! From Tonopah, no less!

    Is the food at McDonald’s in Tonopah still as utterly inedible as it was in 1996?

  2. A wonderful story up ’til now, Ghost. Thanks!
    Wondered if we will have cats and dogs, who are also soul, being actively used by our friends…. I doubt the Guild or the Jupiterians would deign to consider animals as intelligent beings. 😉

  3. You know, Manny, I can’t remember for sure if cats show up anywhere in the remainder of the story or not. I know dogs don’t; our main protagonist (Sven) prefers not to host any four footed ally that has to go outside to do its business…:)

    It may be a little while–a month or two or even three–before more chapters make it onto the site. Right now, my creative juices are sort of being monopolized by the Happy Birthday series. But I won’t forget!

  4. Fred, the food at the McDonalds in Tonopah was not bad, when I went through in 2005. We stopped for lunch on our way to Hawthorne for my mom’s funeral.

  5. That’s good to hear. In 1996-97, it was…abominable would have been an upgrade. Bet they got new management.
