The Armadillo Files

The Armadillo Files by Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a quirky, fun read. I enjoyed Dilly and Tatu's adventures as they time traveled during World War II. Their adventure started in 1959 when Dilly Faraday, a NASA intern, went in search of her pet pink fairy armadillo named Fang … Continue reading The Armadillo Files

I usually like 1960s original recordings best.  But I do love some good swamp blues, especially when it’s Tab Benoit.  Thanks for indulging me in this digression. It does relate to the story. That’s where I got the titular question for this chapter.Lauren Scott More than Coffee

You’ve reached The Armadillo Files.  Stand by for a wild and crazy ride.

When mentioning my weird imagination, more than a few people have asked me if I was doing drugs, specifically the psychedelic kind. After this chapter you might ask the same question. The answer is “No.”  Although lately I’ve been intrigued by the healthful properties and nutritional aspects of some of those fabulous fungi.  Since I’m not on medication, I sometimes look for natural things to help with my PTSD anxiety issues.  Lion’s mane mushrooms sounded promising, but I haven’t noticed any results.  However, they’re super-cool looking, and that got into this chapter.

Photographer Tim Price at Off Center & Not Even let me use some of his beautiful mushroom and fungi photos for a serial in the past, and I’m featuring them today.

Dilly & Fang go western, by Teagan GenevieneDilly & Fang go back in time, image by Teagan

You’ve reached The Armadillo Files.  I’m sorry that I’ve been absent from your blogs and social media.  Similar to most of my characters I have… issues.  Lately it’s been harder than usual for me to deal with them.  Thanks to those of you who asked offline about me and about Crystal. The vet said she looks great for 15, but that her bloodwork showed early onset of kidney disease.  I will keep a close eye on her, to make sure that she continues to feel okay and have a good quality of life. It’s not something I will mention again — that’s one of my issues. Onward.

You’ve reached The Armadillo Files.  Stand by for zaniness.

The kind of spontaneous storytelling I do with my blog serials can lead to paradoxical problems — especially when you’re writing at break-neck speed, the way I’ve had to do The Armadillo Files.  I accidently dug that kind of hole for myself when I brought in Henry Apesly’s predicament with Sally Bowen.  After I posted that episode, I realized that I can’t save both Fang and Marie Browning.  However, I there’s no going back, after I’ve posted a chapter.  So what to do?  How do I write my way out of this one?  

The answer is, that it takes a lot of explaining — and that is what happens in today’s chapter.  There’s no action, and a lot of dialogue explaining the conundrum.  I hope I don’t lose you along the way.
