Status Update

Several of you might be curious as to my delay in posting the 4th part and conclusion to Black Underworld Inc. I am glad to say Part IV is over three-quarters finished along with much of the conclusion. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately depending on who you are πŸ˜‰Β and your preferred tastes of blog-subjects, I have been beset by several simultaneous life, family, and other related significant occurrences and their ripple-effects. Obviously, these have made several inevitable interruptions and postponement to the finish of this 5-part series and any other blog-posts of late I had intended to tackle, compose, and publish. This is the quick explanation.

Thank you all for your patience, inquiries, concerns, etc. I do foresee a respite of these events and their consequences in the near future. But I can not say with any precision when it might beβ€”as Robert Frost candidly puts it, β€œIn three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” And I am not a psychic or fortune-teller. There could very well be more unexpected curve-balls and shenanigans that the infamous Murphy and his law firm of sinister pranksters have in store for me. I hope not.

There are some gremlins too that I know could arrive at my doorstep, through unlocked windows or hatches, tunnels, ventilation pipes, or by phone…Β IF particular events and circumstances beyond my control went left, right, up, or down and at a particular time. Inopportune times too! Hah! I’d imagine this is exactly what an insurance underwriter wrestles with and considers daily:Β  damage control and minimization of risk/exposure. Can’t you just hear him punching his adding machine and the clah-clicks tallying totals as the paper-roll moves across the floor?

Bah! So that’s the polite short of it.

I am still here. Until that day or evening of some respite, please do check your new blog notifications for the Professor. I shall return as soon as all my escaped circus animals are located, returned, and settled back to normal… whatever is considered β€œnormal.” πŸ˜›

  1. Thank you for the update, kind Sir. Please know that I have been checking the analog mailbox frequently for Part IV. Am even able to devise an image of adding-machine clacks, complete with a green-eye-shaded insurance underwriter, complete with a green 1973 AMC Gremlin that I bought new for $1,900. A very rare Gremlin with *no* vexing gremlins inside. πŸ™‚

    • Hah! See Bill, there are all shapes and sizes of gremlins everywhere and I’m convinced they’re all paid agents of Murphy’s law firm!!! $1,900? Even in ’73 that seems a pretty good price for such an awful looking little car. πŸ€” πŸ˜›

      • I recall a gremlin that scared the Shatner out of me once, happened in a zone of twilight as I recall. Perhaps it’s why I bought that well-named Gremlin β€” and drove it for 240,000 miles. One way to tame a gremlin πŸ™‚
