Everyone Has The Right To Be Stupid. Some Just Abuse The Privilege.



Above drawing is the result of a transfusion gone bad.

As I have been saying, I am rapidly changing from a mild mannered self- made man, turned maniac. Perfect example is holding Jason hostage until I can calm down and get my nerves in order. But him letting go of the business was not on my list of things to do. I had a bad feeling about this all along. Perhaps denial is the key word for the day but I think he should have taken more responsibility. We have Internet service here and always have. We have installed solar panels and are quite self- sufficient. There is not excuse not to keep me informed as to what his intentions were.

“Ivan you can’t keep me here against my will, you know that.” I could see he was panicking. “Jason, here I am regarded as a saint. I can do whatever I want. You have put me in a lousy position and I need time to figure things out. In the meantime, finish your lunch. Then you can be escorted either back to your room or take a tour of Baker Island, but not Jervis or the others.”

I snapped my fingers and the waiter came over. I have been learning how to telecommunicate with the umons. I’ve gotten pretty good so far. Within a few seconds I had two very crazy looking police people (side effects from the transfusions) escort Jason back to his room. I needed to see Aaron as quickly as possible. I had to either stop the transfusions or adjust them. Aaron is the only one who is working on a formula to regulate the violent behavior. Although I have to say I feel justified in feeling the way I do. As the saying goes, no use crying over spilt milk. I may just have to bite the bullet, let Clair Enterprises go and completely concentrate on making Karpland the next Epcot or Disneyland. This will take years, but worth a try. It will definitely make me a rich man again. Then I can sail around on a luxury yacht like L. Ron Hubbard. Not exactly what I had in mind but if I have to deal with limitations, why not do it in style.

By the way The Twinkie Lounge is doing very well. It is listed in Outtraveler.com and Olivia is interested in a Karpland Cruise. So perhaps jumping from the art business to tourism isn’t such a bad idea after all.

Stay tuned. I’m seriously thinking about sending Jason to Syria and let Isis deal with him.
