A Comedy in 2 Acts

This zany comedy centers on Doc, an eccentric old man whose house caters to all sorts of characters. Now a retired judge, he spends his days “enjoying life.” When he’s not flying around the countryside in his balloon or fishing in a nearby dry riverbed, he works on his books of nonsense. This prompts his daughter, Charlotte, to decide he’s lost his marbles. So, conspiring with a sly lawyer, she plans to not only become his guardian but also sell his house and property. Throw in a psychologist on her first case, love sick teenagers, an irate school bus driver and an occasional artist or two and it’s a madhouse! Will Doc be committed or not? When he shows up at his sanity hearing dressed as a magician, his daughter and her lawyer think they have it all sewed up. However, Doc has a few surprise rabbits to pull out of the hat. As Leo says, “There is method to his madness.” And Doc shows one and all what a little nonsense can do “If the Good Lord’s Willing and the Creek Don’t Rise.”

Our Town Gladstone 2

A continuation of the story told in Our Town, Gladstone (2017). Our Town Gladstone 2: The continuing story of Ruth and Simon WestLake has humor, history, and even a little romance. It includes lots of real life history including the tale of William Bailey who was the first banker in Gladstone...he only charged 2% interest! Of course, that 2% was compounded monthly. Anyway...if you are interested in Kelvin's historical stories...they are compiled in a paperback called Stories From Our Town, which is available at kelvinbueckert.com.
