Smiles Riot and the professor

The professor caught up with Smiles Riot at Cashew City.

In truth, I might have known that I would be the only one capable of catching him.

You see, we have a connection.

A family connection.

Smiles was eating a bucket of unsalted cashews (the professor’s very favorite, you know) when I walked up and sat at his table—across from him.

Smiles semi-smiled when he saw me.

“I was wondering when you’d show up.”

That got the professor. “You knew I was coming?”

He looked away. “Have you ever noticed how cashews realize things?”

“Realize things?”

Having speaks with Mr. Riot is always a trip—it frustrates this professor a bit, bits, and little bits.

Smiles nodded. “Oh yes. I think of them as tiny brains that add to your intelligence when you eat them.” He popped one into his mouth.

“So, Smiles,” I said. “Where’s the music box?”

Smiles didn’t even hesitate.

He unwrapped the music box (it was in some sort of pink cloth) and sat it on the table.

I must say, the box was rather ugly—leastaways, this professor thought so. The professor opened the box.

Completely gutted.

No music.

No anything.

It was empty.

Then Smiles shook his head. “Sad, isn’t it? Everyone has been chasing me for that box, but look at it? They would have been better served getting intelligence from the cashews.”

“They’re also chasing you, because you escaped from Crackjaw,” I reminded him.

“Boris the Green would benefit from eating cashews,” Smiles remarked thoughtfully.

“Why did you steal it?” I asked.

“I saved Fats Henry the embarrassment of showing it at his party. Funny how it worked. I stole it because it was ugly. And I was chased because people thought it was valuable.”

Then the professor said his goodbyes and left.

I wasn’t about to turn him in, you know. Being a cousin and all…

The music box went with me.

When I returned the music box to Fats Henry, he was quite pleased. It turned out the music box was found buried in the ground on Fat Man Island by Bud Parker.

Henry thought the music box priceless—since it looked rather old. That’s why he threw a party to show it off.

Dadblamery, I say!

    Dadblamery indeed! Such a punchy box! I had a nagging feeling the professor and Riot had a connection. :D

    Looking forward to seeing more of him around PL! He may be a little odd, but I think he’s just misunderstood.

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:40

      A family one! :)

      Especially by Mr. Magi, I think.

      • 3 Hazy February 13, 2014 at 05:30

        Which side of the family?

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke February 13, 2014 at 14:46

        Mother’s I think.

  2. 5 Jackie January 29, 2014 at 16:20

    Fats Henry is definitely not the sharpest tack on the cork board. Is it hard being related to Smiles? He seems just a bit off-kilter and lost in his own world.

    • 6 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:13

      He certainly is. But he’s at his best when speaking with me, I think.

      • 7 Jackie January 30, 2014 at 00:56

        You just have a way about you! It’s the Professorish way! That’s why we all love you. 8-)

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 01:09

        Aw, that’s so nice of you to say! I might blush now. Good thing FEF is around.

      • 9 Jackie January 30, 2014 at 01:29

        Pardon my ignorance – who is FEF. If I’m supposed to know this already I apologize – it’s been a rough day.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 14:15

        I’m sorry! :lol: That’s the professor’s nickname for FictionFan.

      • 11 Jackie January 30, 2014 at 14:47

        Oh I see – thanks for the clarification.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:09

        No problemento!

  3. 13 ladycheetah7 January 29, 2014 at 01:20

    That was a pretty good story PVJ. I liked how everything tied in. Surely, I was right in my assumption that you and Smiles were related if not him being your alter ego…..hmmmm.

    • 14 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:02

      Many thanks, Lady. :)

      Yes, how did you know? Totally caught the professor off guard.

      • 15 ladycheetah7 January 29, 2014 at 19:10

        Call it intuition.

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:19

        I bet it was a guess!

  4. 17 Garden Walk Garden Talk January 29, 2014 at 00:04

    So much to know on cashews. I need to get caught up!

    • 18 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:18

      Me too! You must give me all the info you get! :)

  5. 19 The Dancing Rider January 28, 2014 at 21:18

    Oh my. Related to SR….. a cousin?! I did note that you two could have a real conversation. Is that why?

    I found it funny about the rather ugly, EMPTY, box. ;-)

    Best of all whas “Crack Jaw”. Fantastic Punchilized name!

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:10

      I think so. Smiles likes the professor.

      Rather ironic, wasn’t it?

      It is the perfect Punchy jail. I’d like to visit.

  6. 21 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 20:08

    According to the blog, I am following this blog, but I didn’t get a notification today…

    • 22 FictionFan January 28, 2014 at 22:05

      Neither did I…do you think the Professor has blocked us for being too cheeky?

      • 23 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 22:34

        No…maybe…Naw, he wouldn’t do that. Would he? I’m starting to feel a little underappreciated!

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:18

        The professor isn’t that evil–too sweet and romantic for that.

      • 25 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 16:32

        Yes, I knew that from your interest in A Kingdom Far and Clear. Have you read Jane Eyre?

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:16

        :shock: How did you know that from that? (No, should I?)

      • 27 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 21:21

        Fairy tales are like that.

        Yes, you should.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 00:58

        Is it all lovey, lovey, love?

        (I did like the queen in the Kingdom book.)

      • 29 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 20:46

        Not disgustingly lovey. Proper love is never disgusting. She rocks. Totally.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:24

        Who’s she?

      • 31 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 23:30

        The Princess/Queen in the book.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 15:57

        There’s a queen in that book?

      • 33 Susan P January 31, 2014 at 17:53

        But of course.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 18:58

        You say that now.

      • 35 Susan P February 1, 2014 at 17:22

        No, I said that then. Today is not then, it’s now and I’m not saying anything.

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2014 at 23:56

        :P

      • 37 Susan P February 2, 2014 at 16:50

        ;)

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:17

        Of course I didn’t do that. Hmm…dadblame wordpress. I look into it. Let me know if it persists, ladies. Then I’ll declare war.

  7. 39 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 20:05

    Dadblamery indeed. Another answer that doesn’t tell me what I want to know. Hope springs eternal, though. Some day…. When the music box played music, what sort of music did it play?

    • 40 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:03

      Oh dear. What would you like to know?

      I think music from the Godfather.

      • 41 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 16:22

        Rrrrrats. I was hoping for music from Phantom of the Opera. It would be so appropriate.

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:13

        What about from Frozen?

      • 43 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 21:18

        I haven’t seen that one. I have seen Phantom. That’s chilling enough. :)

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 00:55

        So is the professor.

      • 45 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 20:43

        Chillin?

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:23

        I think so!

      • 47 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 23:28

        Up to your ears yet?

      • 48 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 15:56

        Not just yet…

      • 49 Susan P January 31, 2014 at 17:50

        Good. I have time to crochet some ear muffs.

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 18:58

        That is so cool that you can do that. I stand amazed.

      • 51 Susan P February 1, 2014 at 17:20

        Save the amazed for when you see them. :D

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2014 at 23:54

        I’m sure they’ll be awesome.

      • 53 Susan P February 2, 2014 at 16:47

        I’ll have to send them via the CIA.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 14:17

        The professor is actually an agent.

      • 55 Susan P February 3, 2014 at 14:51

        An agent of chaos.

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 18:36

        I keep the peace.

      • 57 Susan P February 3, 2014 at 19:09

        If you say so! :D

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 23:56

        That’s the way!

      • 59 Susan P February 4, 2014 at 19:36

        Which way? I’m confused.

      • 60 Professor VJ Duke February 4, 2014 at 21:34

        To agree with me. :)

      • 61 Susan P February 4, 2014 at 23:30

        I have a shepherd’s pie in the oven for dinner…does that agree with you?

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 00:54

        You do not! That’s what the professor just had. :D

      • 63 Susan P February 5, 2014 at 13:20

        ‘Tis the season.

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke February 5, 2014 at 19:43

        For joy.

      • 65 Susan P February 6, 2014 at 02:27

        Always.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke February 6, 2014 at 13:55

        :)

  8. 67 Debbie January 28, 2014 at 18:43

    A music box that doesn’t play music?? Now I’d call THAT dadblamery!!

    • 68 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 00:56

      Indeed! Dadblamery at its finest.

  9. 69 bardictale January 28, 2014 at 17:04

    Can you learn about the universe from cashews?

    • 70 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:24

      I bet so. Do you think it’s possible?

      • 71 bardictale January 28, 2014 at 18:47

        If Smiles Riot says so, then it is.

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 00:57

        Do you like the fellow?

      • 73 bardictale January 29, 2014 at 04:53

        Not sure yet. I’ll invite him over for tea and then I’ll let you know.

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:04

        That should tell all, for sure.

  10. 75 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 28, 2014 at 15:27

    I’d like to meet the person who forced cashews down the professor and Smiles’ mouths. That person is the true genius. :) Cousins? How nice…do you also share Crackjaw in common? ;)

    Did Smiles wrap it in pink cloth? He should have chosen red, at the very least it should have come back to Henry with a proper cover.

    No music in the box? Phewy. This music box stinks. Stinks of disappointment. Thank goodness we still have Symphonist Sepperl around.

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:22

      His name (the guy that owns Cashew City) is Jules Eoppers, I believe. But I forget. There was a post about it once upon a starless night.

      Crakcjaw!? Of course not! The professor is upright, you know! Dadblameit!

      I agree. Red is much better. But alas…

      :lol: Very true! We should throw it away.

      • 77 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 28, 2014 at 20:38

        I’ll have to take a look. Once upon a starless night was the name of the post or are you all the sudden lost in a wonderful memory… :)

        :lol: I couldn’t help myself. Such language, Duketh! Honestly!

        Alas tis not our story to tell, right?

        Get it out of my sight!! :D *mumbles something about the music box being a tease*

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:10

        I think it’s both.

        :lol: I’m allowed to swear, dadblameit! ;)

        Tis true.

        :lol: I will!

      • 79 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 29, 2014 at 06:29

        Both, that doesn’t help me at all…actually I think it did. ;)

        :lol: Now that’s the spirit!! I’m so proud! (Did I just say that?)

        Yes
        :lol:

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:05

        :lol: You’re so wicked too, Audith–just like the dadblame professor.

      • 81 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 29, 2014 at 20:12

        I am sweet, thank you for noticing, Duketh. I spend my day with my butterfly net hoping nobody will notice. ;)

        :lol: Have you just decided to use that word in every comment you make towards me? *pursed lips indeed* tisk tisk

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 00:54

        I bet you catch bees with it.

        I wouldn’t do that, ’cause it would be dadblamery.

      • 83 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 30, 2014 at 01:03

        I deserved that.

        Sorry, I was picking on you, Duke.
        You know I adore you, right?

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 01:09

        Do you? I feel hated.

      • 85 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 30, 2014 at 01:10

        I do. No…you mustn’t!!!!!!

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 01:11

        I will try…

      • 87 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 30, 2014 at 01:15

        What do I need to do to make you feel loved? I don’t want you feeling hated.

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 14:15

        Give me a cherry cake.

      • 89 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 30, 2014 at 15:08

        Okay does it have frosting?

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:14

        Oh, it just must!

      • 91 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 31, 2014 at 03:52

        I worked all day on it. You must have two pieces now…

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 16:04

        That won’t be a problem–maybe it will. You want to ruin my form.

      • 93 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 31, 2014 at 16:09

        I could. I’ve done it for weaker men. I’m up for the challenge. Go have a run, you’ll be fine. ;)

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 16:12

        It’s against the regiment and routine.

      • 95 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 31, 2014 at 16:13

        Okay, well then I’ve got nothing. You’ll have to take your chances.

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 18:47

        Oh dear…

      • 97 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister January 31, 2014 at 20:14

        :)

  11. 98 L. Marie January 28, 2014 at 15:16

    A cousin you say?? Manothunder!
    I had a music box once that played the theme from The Godfather Part 1. Seriously.

    • 99 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:21

      And a wowawee.

      Wow! :lol: I bet it was cool.

  12. 100 Bethy January 28, 2014 at 15:07

    The music box was EMPTY!!??
    I wonder if I could get intelligence from eating cashews.

    • 101 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:20

      Dadblamery, wasn’t it?

      The professor hopes he does!

      • 102 Bethy January 28, 2014 at 19:38

        Most certainly. And really its name should be changed to just box because well…
        Me too! I mean I eat so many cashews anyway I could get really smartlike.

      • 103 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 00:57

        :lol: I understand that…

        Yes, that’s it!

  13. 104 wwalker January 28, 2014 at 14:21

    I wish I’d thought of the name Smiles Riot first. Can I have it when your done with it?

    • 105 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 14:30

      Do you like it lots? :)

      • 106 wwalker January 28, 2014 at 14:47

        I’ve come across quite a few names in my tme. That is my favorite.

      • 107 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:14

        Well–the professor is quite happy. Did you read the chap’s bio?

      • 108 walt walker January 29, 2014 at 04:44

        I had not read his bio, but now I have. My wife would like him. She has a tattoo of a turtle above her ankle. Come to think of it, I don’t know what it’s name is. Embarrassing!

      • 109 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:03

        :lol: That’s awesome! (You should suggest the name Smiles has for his turtle. Do you think she’d like it?)

  14. 110 FictionFan January 28, 2014 at 14:15

    Perhaps it was playing music but at a pitch too high for the Professorial ears. Or perhaps it was filled with wicked invisible gnomes that the Professor has now released into the PL…

    Is Smiles’ middle name Mic, by any chance?

    • 111 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 14:30

      Oh no, the professor is trained at hearing overtones and overtones’ cousins.

      You were in the box???

      What would make you think that?

      • 112 FictionFan January 28, 2014 at 21:30

        Is the Professor a dog? Or a dog’s cousin?

        Thanks for freeing me! Gnomes don’t like to be locked up, you know.

        It’s just that the three of you seem so…ahem…close, somehow…

      • 113 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:16

        Hmm… Rats and heifer.

        I do know, but something tells me I shouldn’t have done it. Will you give me three wishes?

        Hahaha. Madam, you are completely in the dark in that area, and you know it!

      • 114 FictionFan January 29, 2014 at 16:35

        Yes, OK. But I should warn you that sometimes gnome wish-granting doesn’t work out quite the way you expect. So, what do you wish for?

      • 115 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:18

        First, a packet of gummy bears. Then, I’d like Thorin’s sword. Lastly, I’d like a bull frog–the biggest one ever.

      • 116 FictionFan January 29, 2014 at 23:33

        Well, we don’t have gummy bears here in Scotland so I’m nor sure what they’re like. But I’m sending a three grizzly bears instead – hope that’s OK. Be careful though – they weren’t happy about me putting them in a packet…

        Thorin’s sword was unavailable in the Gnome Store, but Reepicheep’s sword is on its way! Oh dear, I’m so sorry – I was packing the bull-frog to send to you, but it was so cute and adorable I inadvertently kissed it… Prince Harry will be with you soon…

      • 117 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 01:02

        You don’t?! Dadblamery is what it is! They’re definitely a professorish candy.

        :lol: Oh dear! That’s a huge change in order!

        :lol: Why are you always calling me Reepicheep?

        What’s he look like, the prince?

      • 118 FictionFan January 30, 2014 at 02:26

        We do have jelly babies, which I always assume are the same sort of thing. But you’ll like the grizzlies…once they get used to your scent…

        :lol: I honestly can’t remember – the original reason is lost in the dim mists of time. But I like Reepicheep, so it must’ve been a compliment…

        Like a bull-frog who’s just been unexpectedly kissed…

      • 119 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 14:18

        Jelly babies? Hmm… The professor has not a scent.

        Funny how it’s actually applicable.

        I like to eat frog legs.

      • 120 FictionFan January 30, 2014 at 15:01

        Oh dear…the grizzlies won’t like that…

        Yes, I think so too.

        Please don’t eat Prince Harry’s legs – the Queen won’t like it!

      • 121 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:13

        But I think they will.

        Very odd…

        He’s a real person?! :lol:

      • 122 FictionFan January 31, 2014 at 00:42

        No, the only protection from a grizzly is to smell of geraniums…didn’t you know?

        The Queen’s grandson – which makes him sort of a cousin to King Arthur…

      • 123 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 16:03

        What’s a geranium?

        The royal stuff loses me.

      • 124 FictionFan January 31, 2014 at 19:50

        A lovely flower…

        We’re always being told Americans are fascinated by our Royal Family – I often think of sending the whole lot of them over as a gift…

      • 125 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2014 at 00:09

        Hmm. Sounds like the professor.

        We’ll trade for Mr. Morgan, though the royals will see how we treat tyrants!

      • 126 FictionFan February 1, 2014 at 01:22

        Indeed!

        Who’s Mr Morgan? Haha! I don’t think our present lot of buffoons and nincompoops really count as tyrants…

      • 127 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2014 at 23:49

        Woops. A blunder, I fear.

        Piers ole’ chap. Fair trade if they’re really buffoons and nincompoops.

      • 128 FictionFan February 2, 2014 at 19:23

        Oh, no, no – I’d forgotten about Piers. I’m afraid we supplied him on a ‘No Returns’ basis – frankly I’d rather keep the Royals!

      • 129 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 14:22

        :lol: Such a disappointment.

    • 130 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 20:07

      That’s what I’m askin’ FF.

      • 131 FictionFan January 28, 2014 at 21:47

        It’s all most odd – the resemblances are…ahem…remarkable…

      • 132 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 22:33

        Uh huh. Right down to their grins – or smiles if you will.

      • 133 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:18

        And the hat.

      • 134 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 16:29

        Hats! One for each of you.

      • 135 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:15

        Two for me, please.

      • 136 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 21:20

        Can do. Two different colors?

      • 137 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 00:58

        Yes. Red and Purplish-black.

      • 138 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 20:45

        Got it. It may present some challenges in shipping….

      • 139 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 21:23

        Can’t wait!

      • 140 Susan P January 30, 2014 at 23:29

        Don’t mind the breathing holes in the box. I do hope I put enough food and water in to last the journey.

      • 141 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 15:57

        For the hats???

      • 142 Susan P January 31, 2014 at 17:51

        Of course the hats. And whatever might be inside of them.

      • 143 Professor VJ Duke January 31, 2014 at 18:58

        :shock: Rats and a heifer?

      • 144 Susan P February 1, 2014 at 17:21

        You look like it boggles your mind. Actually, it’s more like a guinea pig.

      • 145 Professor VJ Duke February 1, 2014 at 23:55

        The professor used to have a guinea pig. The beast was called Freckles.

      • 146 Susan P February 2, 2014 at 16:49

        And it squealed. I have never had a guinea pig of my own, but I babysat my daughter’s friends’s gp a few times. As soon as he heard the treat bag rattle he would sound of loudly and piercingly.

      • 147 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 14:17

        :lol: Nice sound, though, isn’t it?

      • 148 Susan P February 3, 2014 at 14:51

        More like annoying.

      • 149 Professor VJ Duke February 3, 2014 at 18:37

        :lol:

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:16

        Yes, isn’t it?

  15. 151 portergirl January 28, 2014 at 14:13

    That. Is. AWESOME! So Smiles is the cousin of The Professor? That is interesting. I like his thoughts on cashews, very insightful. And I actually think he did Fats Henry a favour – imagine the embarrassment!

    • 152 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 14:29

      Thanks, Lucy! He sure is…

      I know! It seems like something the Dean might do, too.

      (Do you like cashews?)

      • 153 portergirl January 28, 2014 at 14:34

        I love cashews, certainly. I like many nuts, but cashews are my favourite.

        I am sure The Dean would approve! Such a fabulous chap, The Dean – as you know!

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:13

        Mine too! They’re just…professorish!

        :lol: I do! (Can’t wait for Thursday.)

      • 155 portergirl January 29, 2014 at 15:30

        Me either!! Hardly going to be able to sleep tonight…

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:11

        :D Cool!

    • 157 deanthefish January 28, 2014 at 15:30

      I really am flattered but I don’t believe we’ve met.

      Sincerely,
      Dean

      • 158 portergirl January 28, 2014 at 15:31

        I admire you from afar

    • 159 deanthefish January 28, 2014 at 18:00

      Is there an emoticon with a raised eyebrow? /.’- /

      How’s that?

      I was not aware that my praises are sung in foreign lands. ;-)

      • 160 portergirl January 29, 2014 at 15:29

        You are more famous than you thought!

  16. 161 deanthefish January 28, 2014 at 14:10

    I love the name of the prison: crackjaw… priceless!

    • 162 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 14:28

      Thanks, Mr. Fish. Ever been there?

      • 163 deanthefish January 28, 2014 at 15:30

        No…

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:22

        Good man!

      • 165 Susan P January 28, 2014 at 20:06

        Are you quite certain, Mr. Fish?

    • 166 deanthefish January 28, 2014 at 21:30

      Well…. maybe in a half remembered dream… :twisted:

      • 167 Susan P January 29, 2014 at 01:57

        :D

  17. 168 Anja January 28, 2014 at 14:06

    Cousins……were you close growing up? What is the story?

    • 169 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 14:27

      We were somewhat close. Smiles was always a strange lad, you know.

      • 170 Anja January 28, 2014 at 14:48

        What caused you to drift apart

      • 171 Professor VJ Duke January 28, 2014 at 18:15

        Smiles moves about frequently. He sort of up and left–if you know what I mean.

      • 172 Anja January 28, 2014 at 22:22

        He didn’t move around too much if he was locked up :)

      • 173 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:17

        He was locked up later in life.

      • 174 Anja January 29, 2014 at 01:18

        How much later?

      • 175 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 01:19

        Hmm….don’t you believe the professor?

      • 176 Anja January 29, 2014 at 01:20

        Why wouldn’t I believe you? I was just curious when it occurred

      • 177 Professor VJ Duke January 29, 2014 at 19:03

        I forget to be honest. But you should be able to tell me. :)

      • 178 Anja January 29, 2014 at 19:23

        Why should I be able to tell you?

      • 179 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 00:50

        You’re in charge of my brain.

      • 180 Anja January 30, 2014 at 00:54

        Not back then I wasn’t

      • 181 Professor VJ Duke January 30, 2014 at 01:06

        Oh, that’s true.
