It just happened again. I clicked on Information to read what Domenic has posted on that thread and here I am on Stodghill Says So as if by magic.
Perhaps Dick just wanted to let Domenic know he read his message here.

I had a strange vision. I imagined Dick floating on a cloud, with his legs crossed, smoking his pipe. I imagine if he is able to see us, (that is pure speculation) then he is smiling. His memory lingers.

I usually find myself wanting more variety than either the local phonebook or my imagination provide. I tend to choose a nationality and then search the internet for first or last names that fit the bill. You always get a good list to choose from and just pick one that catches your eye.
For example, the government agent in my most recent work is named Bill Trzcinski. All I had to decide was that he was an American of Polish ancestry and the rest fell into place.
