Every once in a while,
fairly often actually,
a client will ask him to something
that he knows is going to hurt.  

Bone thinks to say no,
and then his mind drifts back
to those days outside the Paradise Restaurant,
when he would stare through the big window,
and watch all those people in there,
just stuffing their gobs
with great tasting food,
and how that would drive him nuts,
because his bellybutton
was rubbing up against his backbone.  

He thinks about that,
and tells the client
“Yeah, okay.”

Thanks dear Billy,

Bones would look at you and say--"You're a nice pretty lady."

Bone says thanks.

Love Bones/Bobby

Thanks dear LeeJ,

It's nice to see you up and around.  Thanks for reading and commenting.

We haven't had an unusual amount of rain here in the Port Richmond secton of Philadelphia.  But then, one has to remember, we're God's people here.

I hope you feel better soon.

Love Bobby

Man, bones is my favorite. He's a good kid, just fallen on hard times. I hope he comes to visit sometime. I'll cook him a frozen pizza.

We all know bones.

Thirty bits of glass had become my teeth,
They were breaking each and every time I tried to speak.

Thanks Paul,

Bones is very partial to cooked-up frozen pizza.  He has one down in the freezer now he's thinking about.

Reading several of your Bones stories...how touching to live in someone else's mind and body, even for a little while. I really enjoyed your Bones!

It is a shame what Bones has to do for money!  Life may be miserable for Bones but his life does make for interesting reading.
