Howdy-doody!

This post was last modified: 08 Feb 2018 08:35 PM by Corben Duke.
Hello. My name is Corben Duke. I’m the co-author of a Sci-Fi Comedy - The Worst Man on Mars. My writing buddy (Mark Roman) sent me here to make friends. He worries that I don’t meet enough people. I know what he’s up to … he’s hoping I get myself into all sorts of trouble which he can then weave into a story. Ideally he’d like me strike up a friendship with an alien looking for human exhibits for a space-zoo near Antares. His plan is that I’m ‘taken’ and I find a way to beam back detailed notes of my experience for his latest Sci-Fi Thriller – “Escape from Space Zoo Alpha”. Frankly I think his plan is flawed, no self-respecting will want a human with a gammy leg and an a nasty rash.
Nice to meet you.

How do, Corben? I'm an alien, susceptible to nasty rashes. Hail and farewell.
Oh, and welcome to the group!

RE: Howdy-doody!

Pleased to make your acquaintance, Kath. My goodness you have a lot of stars! You have 8 if I'm not mistaken. I have 2. Who's in charge of the stars around here?
I see you like vegetables, quilts and archaeology. That's a coincidence, I love mashed potatoes, I have a quilt on my bed and I'm the reconstruction architect at Druce Farm Roman Villa near Dorchester. What are the chances of that happening?

Thanks, Campbell. I've now followed all the KUF guidance on signature images and in theory it should appear on the bottom of this post. It's not showing up in the preview so I'm not hopeful ... let's see.

Just as I thought, it didn't work. And I was so careful to follow the instructions. Maybe it's a tekno-glitch. I'll have another go later.

I think you need a minimum number of posts for your signature links to show. Maybe 8 or 10. Can't recall.

Ah. Yes. That would explain it. Now I see why you have 8 stars and I only have 2. Thanks, Kath.
