When do you know life is a play, or at least a series of plays? One usually knows when a situation is so absurd, it can't be anything but a play. This is a play, but then again it's just something that happened in Quakertown, Pennsylvania in 1961. There are a bunch of characters that include people, three cars and a diner, of course. It wouldn't be a story if there wasn't a diner. Is this enough for a play? Perhaps. Believe it or not, this is a true story, more or less, and the names have been changed, well most of the names have been changed to protect the author. I guess you would have to be there to see how farcical a farce can be, particularly when it is based on true events. Join in; the water's fine; it's spring and summer's coming.

About the Author
Gregory St. John Taylor is indescribable, but we will try. He is a 6-foot, 71-year old, white, male, American professional with a ponytail and a beard. Some say he is a left-over Hippie, and in many ways, he is. In order to give you a handle on Greg, we will start with literary accomplishments. He has 139 e-Works in the Internet marketplace, as well as on his nine websites, one of which is a complete, online novel, a free read at www.shoppolisislands.com. The breakdown includes: 14 novels, 11 novellas, 19 novelettes, 6 plays, 10 poetry works, 23 short novels, 11 flash fiction pieces, 7 enterprise books, 10 junior cookbooks, and in the sensual & erotic category, 5 novelettes, and 7 short novels. Add 5 cartooned e-Pieces, 1 English grammar book with his wife, Liz, 3 non-fiction textbooks, 1 diabetes case study, as well as his popular historical science fiction series “Valiant Scatter” involving the inanimate expressions of sunken navy ships, particularly those lost during World War II. At this juncture, there are 5 published. He believes his guardian angel is one of these ships, HMS Glowworm H92, a British destroyer lost in 1940. He writes drama, humor, mystery, poetics, and experiments with new forms of expression. When considering style, which normally eludes him, it is thought that he is a latter-day Modernist stuck in a stream-of-consciousness rut proposing stories in a slice-of-life sequence. He is a technical writer, illustrator, editor; sketch artist; fine artist; playwright; caricaturist; cartoonist; and graphics designer. “I have written over 3,000,000 words of fiction, and this number is only the beginning,” he says. He is an alumnus of the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, a graduate of Penn State University and served in the United States Air Force, 1966-1970. He isn’t all business, and as a skier, was fortunate enough to ski the Alps while stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany, 1966-1969. Greg became an accomplished horseman (English) as well as a polo player. Because of attending Admiral Farragut Academy in his youth, he became a sailor of both sailing vessels and power. Greg has been a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, Alpha Delta chapter, Penn State, since 1964, a husband since 1976, a father since 1980, and a grandfather since 2002. At 71, he thinks the flag is close to holy, that veterans should be cherished, and that war should be outlawed. This attitude is reflected in his work. As you can see, he is totally indescribable.
