I found a brand new Cellphone in my mailbox today.
I opened it up and said hello and this is what it said.

"It's going to start to rain in a few Days and I want you to start building an Ark.
ALSO a New Song will be coming to you via your Guardian Angel very soon and it's very important to Mankind to write it and Post it all over the world."

Is the Message about the Ark real or Symbolic?

And what kind of song could be coming my way that could be so important?

HOW did that phone get in my mailbox?

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING ON HERE?"

Hi Barry:

You pose a "Lady or the Tiger" question here... LOL! Not knowing if you are "pulling our chains" or if this actually happened, I don't have a clue of which advice to offer. Some would see it as a gift, ignore the message and begin to use the cellphone for their tiny minded purposes. Others would study the phone carefully, get out their iPad and photograph it at a peculiar angle and swear it was an image of the Virgin Mary. A real songwriter (like you) would immediately recognize it was a gift from above and start writing that killer song that will eventually make you rich and famous.

I hope you realize all of my little soliloquy is aimed at humor and levity. I would probably call my local law enforcement agency and let them do the worrying. Thanks for sharing... and it this is actually a true story... please clarify, old pal.

Regards, ----Dave

David, it is not a "Lady or Tiger" question---but thanks for the memories of a great story....the real question, The iPhone or the Android smile

And Barry--yeah man, write a hit around that--and glad you're feeling well today.


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

Hi John:

Thankfully, I don't have to worry about iPhones or Androids. Here in "West Mayberry" we are using the highly sophisticated "Can and String" Network to communicate with our neighbors.

Like you, I'm glad Barry is feeling better. Always good to hear from you.

----Dave

Thanks and Just having a bit of fun with this cool little story....I posted a special page for this on one of my Facebook Pages and will get a new message everyday that I will post.....there on lots of different issues....The one new one besides this is CANCER IS CURABLE BUT WE ARE LOOKING IN THE WRONG PLACES.

Maybe I'll do it for a month of messages and put it all in a Book.
