Edit: I am copying the Harv and Vera's Adventure in Panama to this thread in the Writer's Corner. Enjoy!

Well, I just wasted my entire afternoon reading this thread. Wonder what sort of other nonsense was got up to while I was away.



Vera stepped off the veranda into the heat of the Panama City night.

"To Hell with Harv!" she muttered. He was nothing but trouble, anyway. Why, he couldn't even get that damned boat of his to stop leaking, even after three barrels of pitch and an entire sailcloth.

She sauntered down the path leading to the American Zone, thinking she needed to have some fun and the navvies there were certainly her type of fun. She wanted it and she wanted it bad!

And nowhere else in Central America did they make peach cobbler like the ones in the Enlisted club.

Slapping her feet down in an agitated tatoo, Vera reflected back on her realationship with Harv. He wasn't really all that bad, at least not for a man who had been morphed into a squid at least once. And there had been that time he'd flown his grumman Goose al the way up to Lake Managua, just to get her a bouquet of rare and endangered (probably extinct, now) orchids.

He just did not understand the needs of a woman, though. All that romantic stuff went only so far. Every now and then, she needed a man to go aout and kill a polar bear or something.

"Next thing you know, he'll be saying how rare polar bears are this close to the equator," she sniffed. Just like a man.

She turned her head toward the Canal Zone, hearing the faint tinklings of a really bad knock off Dorsey Orchestra. Probably playing at the Officers' Club, she thought. the Enlisted Club had to make do with phonographs of the real thing.

well, i'm torn. on the one hand, this new installment of The Ongoing Saga of Vera is eminently karma-worthy. on the other hand, pshrynk's karma is currently the elegant, rotationally symmetrical number of 21112, and i don't want to spoil that.

so i'm posting this comment instead, to express my extreme appreciation of this latest litterary triumph, and my unabated anticipation of the next episode.

The gate guards were typically friendly as Vera sauntered through. She nodded at them, with her blinding smile, her curls bobbing with the effort.

As she passed the main pumping station, she thought she heard voices coming from the back. She knew that many adventures started out with some dimwitted dame poking her nose in where it doesn't belong, but she felt strangel compelled. She walked around the station and was surprised to see that nice Mr Miyatake from the flower shop on Avenida 5 talking with another Asian whom she did not know. They were holding a large satchel between them, as if it was very heavy.

"Mr. Miyatake! What are you doing back here at this time of night?" The words escaped her mouth before her brain had the chance to sit back and think about them.

"Ah. Miss Vera. It is so unfortunate that you should see this. I am afraid I must now have my associate here deal with the situation."

Vera turned to run away and opend her mouth to scream. The small man with Mr. Miyatake was fast, however. Faster than a damsel in distress' scream, apparently.

As consciousness fled her, she thought, "Oh, Harv! I wish I hadn't told you to go drown yourself!"

Clouds of enlightenment spoke eloquently through the ether, as lieuse came alive and the ongoing saga of the E-reader naming thread reached great heights never before seen on MR. The Birth of The Cool was a painless affair, especially to the Kindle from Amazon. There were further unutterable utterences of silliness and then in the brightening gloom within the light at the far end of the tunnel, there emerged, undefeated, unbowed and utterly lost for words ... ... Vera ....
