Artemus: Meanderings

A Whimsical Journey Down the Untamed Stream of Consciousness

By Arthur Flavell

An entertaining, thought-provoking blend of memoir, old-time storytelling, homespun philosophy, and the occasional errant thought, all delivered with Southern style and a distinctive country flavor.

These treasures are the result of matriculation in The Advanced School of Hard Knocks (from which I graduated Summa Cum Laude) and I felt it was only right to share them. Perhaps one or two will bring a smile to your face and a lift to your spirit. So, sing a song and let your consciousness stream free. May your journey be educational, enriching, and above all… joyful.

Emerson Goes Navy:  An Emerson Adventure

By Arthur Flavell

Emerson Francis Whitman, whose parents were great admirers of philosophy – and philosophers – has the distinction of being the technical representative of Primary Pulse Energy Systems of Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. As a tech rep, Emerson travels to a variety of trade shows to assist distributors and dealers of the company’s product line to learn the equipment and to sell more of the same. The work itself is pleasant and relatively undemanding. It allows him to travel across the country in a leisurely fashion, accompanied by his spouse and partner of many years, Priscilla Jeanette, aka PJ.

He also has an unfortunate propensity for becoming entangled in sticky situations through absolutely no fault of his own.

Sent to a Navy supply depot in the Pacific Northwest to investigate the cause of an inordinately large number of submarine battery failures, Emerson finds more than either he or the Navy bargained for. Determining the problem with the batteries is child’s play. Deciding what to do about the discovery could have shocking—and possibly deadly—results!

Emerson Goes Cowboy:  An Emerson Adventure

By Arthur Flavell

Emerson Francis Whitman, whose parents were great admirers of philosophy – and philosophers – has the distinction of being the technical representative of Primary Pulse Energy Systems of Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. As a tech rep, Emerson travels to a variety of trade shows to assist distributors and dealers of the company’s product line to learn the equipment and to sell more of the same. The work itself is pleasant and relatively undemanding. It allows him to travel across the country in a leisurely fashion, accompanied by his spouse and partner of many years, Priscilla Jeanette, aka PJ.

He also has an unfortunate propensity for becoming entangled in sticky situations through absolutely no fault of his own.

Dispatched to an outdoor equipment show in the ranch country of Cheyenne, Wyoming, Emerson inadvertently embarrasses an egotistical ranch hand of questionable skills and even more questionable character. He awakes from the encounter to find himself stretched out on the venerable mahogany bar of the vaunted Long Drink Saloon & Dining Emporium.

Things proceed rapidly downhill from there. He will need a concerted application of both intelligence and troubleshooting skills to survive this ride.

Comin’ Up Cracker

(Mostly) True Tales From the Deep South

By Carolyn Smith Flavell

Comin’ Up Cracker is a whimsical look at growing up in Florida during the post-war years of the ’40s to the ’60s. It is comprised of stories as seen through the eyes of a precocious little girl that range from the everyday to the outrageous. They are quirky, funny, and often heartwarming.

You are invited to enjoy a leisurely journey through an earlier Florida that is now largely lost or forgotten. Take a Sunday afternoon drive along unpaved byways to quaint country towns where residents are still proud to be called “Florida Crackers.”

Florida Cracker: An early cowboy who rounded up the large herds of Andalusian cattle left behind by Ponce de Leon and the Spanish after they abandoned attempts to colonize the interior of the state. The loud cracks from bullwhips used to herd the cattle could be heard for long distances through the woods.
