Emmy was a happy four year old girl. But she was lonely, sometimes, growing up on an isolated farm. Most days there was no else around, except for mom and dad. And, sometimes, a hiker on the trail across the field. Fortunately, she had Jack, her dog, a huge black and tan Rottweiler. He was the best friend a little girl could ever have. Jack would never let anything happen to Emmy.
A short story about a little girl and her dog. And something that came out of the woods.
And, maybe, a reminder not to litter while hiking on a lonely nature trail.
I was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey. When I graduated from college, with a degree in Geology, I left – for a while. I worked on oil wells from California to the North Slope of Alaska, from the Gulf of Mexico to the first test well that was drilled in Georges Bank, off the coast of Massachusetts. Then I came back to New Jersey and spent a few years working at the Division of Fish, Game and Shellfisheries.
I left again for Connecticut to work for the phone company, just in time for Ma Bell to break up. I came back to New Jersey with AT&T and eventually found my way to Bell Labs.
I left Bell Labs to be a stay-at-home dad. As my kids grew older I was able to spend some time volunteering at a nearby riding center for people with special needs -- that's one of my coworkers in the photo with me.
Now that my kids are away at college I’m making the transition to “merely unemployed.” Or maybe I'll become a writer. We’ll see.
