Golden Age Movie Serial. The Phantom Creeps, Chapter 3: Crashing Timbers. Starring Bela Lugosi, the late, great Dracula!
I had a major issue with my computer this last several weeks after upgrading to Windows 11. I've fixed the major issues and will now be posting audio versions of my stories once more.
The first new one is now in the audio section: Windmills of the Heart.
A lovely story about a young woman who sees a far better world than she experiences and will not stop fighting evil until the world is at peace.
There's more, but don't want to give away the fun of it.
Also, the service provider for my site and blogs is still having issues with the order of my blogs, so everything is there every day, but maybe off a bit. Hopefully they'll resolve all those issues soon.

MISTER HOLMES, THE DEFINITIVE SHERLOCK HOLMES MOVIE!
I saw Mister Holmes last night at a local theater that specializes in foreign films.
I had been expecting a great performance from Mister McKellen, as he has never failed in that area to my mind, but the quality of the motion picture project was just tremendous.
Everything was good, from the locations to the script, to the acting...even of the least characters.
It was Hollywood at its best...except this wasn't a Hollywood production, but a BBC one, and they sure know how to show off their actors and stories.
The above scene is pivotal to everything that happens to Sherlock for the next thirty years of his life. So play close attention to it, it's important.
I found my time and money spent well rewarded with exceedingly pleasurable performances by Mister McKellen and especially the child actor who portrays a new friend to him.
And Sherlock's view of his portrayal by Doctor John Watson is comical to say the least as well as revealing!
If you haven't seen this movie. Do!
Cool New Sherlock Holmes movie, Mr. Holmes, just released from Britain starring Ian McKellen as an elderly Holmes. Also Behind the Scenes
This is a movie I've been waiting for quite some time.
Ian McKellan, also Professor Magneto in the X-Men series and Gandalf in the Hobbit series, is just spectacular as an actor.
I'll let everyone know how it was after I've seen it tomorrow, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed!
