The Dora Phenomenon
Dora is at school with all her so-called, friends, Boots, Benny, Isa, Tiko, and even Swiper. The children all scramble to take their seats at the front of the classroom, throwing elbows and pushing each other in order to get that prized spot in front of the teacher.
Now, all the other children, hurt and angered by Dora's actions, simply retaliate with harsh words and name-calling. Dora is infuriated with the other students speaking ill of her big, bulbous, fat, football, head - and she vows revenge.
Of course, the map will tell Dora that she must travel through the sleeping forest, and over the troll bridge to get to the play ground. So, Dora sets off on her adventure with her trusty backpack firmly affixed across her shoulders and back, but without Boots since he sided with the rest of the class, called her names, and left with them for the playground. It wasn't entirely his fault though. Isa inticed him with a fresh bunch of bananas.

I am an old soldier, now reformed to backyard farmer, writer, blogger and aviation systems trainer. Although working on it, I've yet to earn the title of gentleman.
Things that interest me? Writing in numerous genres but mostly suspense, science fiction (speculative) and mystery. Outside of my full-time job, I love everything to do with aquaponic gardening and suburban homesteading. I often blog or post youtube videos about these subjects along with updates on my small typewriter collection, rants about our world's current state of affairs, surviving a zombie apocalypse or the antics of my backyard chickens.
