Stinky and ye Swamp Yankee

By Peter Grant

Comedy & satire, Short stories | eBook


Everyone wants to be Little Jack Horner when the pie is filled with plums. Stinky is the executor for the estate of a cranky Yankee who left a large bequest to support musical performances. Every prominent person in the city wants to be on the council to steer funding to their favorite organizations, and Stinky is overwhelmed by their campaigning. Eddie prefers music by artists popular enough to attract a paying audience and isn’t much interested, but he makes a casual remark that inspires Stinky to restore a New Year’s Eve event that lapsed years earlier because of funding. Boy Scouts will learn many colorful birdcalls heard in swamps and may earn a badge after reading this tale, while adults will learn how Stinky plays one interest group against another to earn a different kind of badge: Eddie’s esteem.



Ah, Peter Grant's family has been composed of cranky Yankees since the 1630s when they sailed from England to Connecticut and haven't done much since. He spent decades on volunteer boards and committees as research for this story and it's much easier to get to a happy ending in a short story than a long meeting. "Stinky and ye Swamp Yankee" is one of fifty-seven Stinky Stories and is included in the collection, "Just Plain Stinky, Volume 7." All sixty-five titles are Amazon bestsellers, if you can imagine such a thing.
