The title of this collection comes in two parts. My daughter made me a cross stitch picture of a story teller (with the insinuation that I was a story teller), and then I thought of all of the shows that have two part episodes and how some of my stories are my view of what happens next or is the prequel to something else I have written or hope to write. Hope you enjoy them.
