The Buddy System

There are a lot of links pointing to this post but stripping them out just seems too daunting a task and if I leave them in you’ll get one of those impersonal Error 404 Not Found notices, but the fact of the matter is that “The Buddy System” is no longer here. It has been taken down, given a good thrashing, and now exists in e-reader format, available for downloading to both Kindle and Nook devices.

It has been said that all fishermen are liars but when Jim Davis dies during a visit to Fish in a Barrel Pond his fishing buddies are forced to concoct a real whopper. Find out if they will be able to keep their own secret in this humorous short story of life at a fishing camp by Quill Gordon.

  1. Very good, Quill! I love the end.

  2. Here’s to dying doing what you love– even if it’s catching a 32″ fish. Or was it 34″?

    Farewell, Jim. Happy fishing.

  3. That certainly is a wild bunch you run with, isn’t it Quill?

  4. Aw, poor Jim. At least he caught his fish, though. Quill, you’re a swell storyteller.

  5. You really need to get an email notification thing. I’m such an idiot I’ve never learned to run a reader properly, and if I’d missed this I would have been a SAD idiot. 🙂 What a great story.
