Agree with James! It reminds me of Aesop's tales. Thank you, Richard. Always perk up when I see you've authored another gem.

Richard Sale

I made it up.


Richard Sale

You are very kind. Your words mean a lot.


ex-PFC Chuck

Awesome! Thanks.


Flu does you good. ;-))

Mr. Sale,

Somehow your parable reminded me of Ecclesiastes 9:11, and Proverbs 16:18:
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Seems that, Elite or Deplorable, Man's nature has changed very little over the past two millennia.
Thanks for writing.
Ishmael Zechariah


I liked it so much I read it out loud to my wife. It was ctually quite thought provoking. Thanks!


Thanks Richard. Great fable.

Richard Sale

Thank you. You guys are very generous.


Richard Sale

Thank you so much.


English Outsider

Loved it. Masterful.


Richard, well told fable - I have read it to my wife also, and she guessed correctly the animal which got the fly. Your stories Sir, are welcome distractions and therefore are 'healthy', for my mind at least, maybe others feel the same.

Richard Sale

Thank you.


You have a shrewd wife.
