Kelly's Full Houseav Paddy KellyThey say everything comes in threes. Here?s three rib tickling tales featuring three characters in three very different time periods and situations.
Kelly?s Full House is a great short story collection that will lift your spirits and help get you through your day by dealing with some of the most taboo subjects ? The Press, death and politics.
1. 127 Alden Road
It?s July 1st, 2017 in Provincetown Massachusetts, original landing place of the Pilgrims. Abigail Helmsworth, town librarian and charter member of the Ladies of New England Social Organization for Massachusetts History, (LONESOME?s for short), is doing some spring cleaning in the Herman Melville Memorial Library when she comes across a document. A document from 1775. A document apparently signed by the Big Man himself ? George Washington!
The possible implications of this document are not at all lost on the town?s 2,427 residents. In just under three days 60,000 tourists will invade this Mecca of U.S. history to celebrate the Fourth of July. The document, if certified to be authentic, could mean tens of thousands in revenue for the tiny hamlet.
2. Dr. Lindsay?s Christmas
At 87 years of age Dr. Jonathan Lindsay, a Dublin native, dedicated pediatrician and devout Catholic his entire life, has just lost his wife of over sixty years and, for the first time finds himself alone on Christmas Eve, 1987.
Reluctant to return to an empty house he takes a stroll up O?Connell Street to enjoy the gaily decorated holiday ornaments, lights and displays.
3. Luck & Fame Are Four Letter Words
A new president has taken the reins, the Space Race is in full swing and the economy is at its peak since end of the war. It?s 1961 and the future looks bright.
However the entire country is not running on greased groves. Rank Publishing Ltd., in New York City is hanging on by a thread. With the advent of automated printing, a television in nearly every home and newspaper circulation up almost tenfold since the end of the war, news stories are cheaper and more readily available. The new sensation is supermarket tabloids and magazine circulation is plummeting!
Luck & Fame examines the roll luck and hype play in achieving fame because, no matter how much talent you may have, Luck and Fame are Four Letter Words.
