Yes, it’s a shaggy dog story, in oh so many ways. Sorry I’m a little late for my monthly Patreon post, but I do expect you’ll find this one worth the wait.

To Say Nothing of the Dog.

(Oh – and as always, please don’t hesitate to hit that little “heart” icon when you get to the bottom of the story on Medium. The more people who recommend it, the more people who get to see it, and the more my fragile writer’s ego gets bolstered.)
