Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... Tasty"...

Barbecue Dog Bite.jpg

Uncle Herb was everyone's favorite. He'd come for a visit every Memorial Day weekend and stay for the following week. And it was always his delicious barbecues that brought the whole family together. Of course this Holiday weekend had started off more unhappily than any other when Mikey was bitten by Mrs. Kelly's dog. He'd always been a very mean dog, and Mikey had only been walking down Elco Drive when the dog ran out of nowhere and jumped him. Mikey even tried to be friendly and calm him down by petting him and saying his name, Fritzi... or was it Rocket? Mister Smiley?... Bumpo??... whatever. The dog first bit his hand and then tore his pants when he bit Mikey on the back of his thigh, right on the inside between his legs where it really hurt. But Uncle Herb always made everything alright. He was funny and wise, and helpful, and never had problems making decisions that fixed problems... just like on a TV show. And now, Uncle Herb had fixed it so the dog wouldn't bite anyone again... and he fixed Mrs. Kelly too.

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... A Pep Talk"...

Cheerleader.jpg

At Rockland State University, the school spirit ran very high! The academic standard was exceptional, rivaling even the more expensive and supposedly "exclusive" Eastern colleges, and its athletic teams regularly triumphed on the national stages in all sports. No one ever suspected in 1950 that there could be any scandals... or that there were subversive elements among the students and faculty. How could anyone guess that popular debutante Betty Lynn Frazier was a double agent for the KGB, and an expert in explosives and sabotage? And what about Professor Seymour Redkin, noted author of psychological texts and beloved children's books, and a master thief and forger of important government documents? There was Dr. Syms Frieborg, who had endowed the Surgical Chair in the Medical School from his family's fortune, and was an expert in interrogation and torture. And then there was his boyfriend, Biff Holloway, captain of the cheerleaders and a ruthless blackmailer who could use his sexual prowess with both sexes to compromise the highest diplomatic officials. Of course, no one found out about any of it till the four of them had left for the Riviera, and the Caribbean, for Paris, and Bali... and had lived happily for decades in security and luxury. Comfortable in their old age... without a care in the world...

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... Follow The Lead"...

1950s-cocktail-lounge-image.jpg

The Annual Country Club Dance was always scheduled for the last weekend before Labor Day, and all the members made a point of being there for the festivities, the raffles, auctions, and prize drawings. The elaborate banquet was catered by the very best company, and the orchestra was always booked from the city and cost a fortune, but no expense was ever spared. Everyone who mattered in the town's elite made a point to see and be seen by their rivals, business associates, competitors, neighbors and friends, and always at their very best. Maybe that was why Ken was so mortified. His wife Phyllis was a proverbial "trophy-wife". Educated at the very best schools both here and abroad, raised in a family of incredible wealth and culture, taste, breeding, wit, and beauty, Phyllis was everything any man could want and any woman could want to be... But why did she always insist on leading? Leading when they got to the dance floor? And why did everyone always have to giggle about it?... and point at Ken!... especially when his back was turned!!… and Phyllis was dipping him!!

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... A New Party Frock"...

The Party.jpg

... Jeanine was thrilled! She had gotten the promotion at the office, a bonus and raise, a corner office and two assistants, and all before the Christmas season, so shopping for friends, family, and herself was assured. And what did she do that very afternoon? She went to Saks Fifth Avenue to the designer floor where that beautiful violet cocktail dress was waiting for her. Nice Mrs. Fletcher, the manager, had set it aside right after Jeanine called and put it on her newly opened charge account. So here she was, dancing and celebrating, enjoying the martinis and champagne, the hors d'oeuvres and the caviar. She was having too much fun dancing with handsome Scott from the Advertising Department to notice that Bill, Cathy, and Craig were snickering over by the record player. Bill had just accidentally-on-purpose bumped into her from behind and wiped a huge streak of chocolate frosting on the derriére of her new dress... and oh, how the fun would really begin...

Zorina EdwinGeorgi_woman_l.jpg

... Zorina had traveled to so many different places and was always excited to meet new people. Finally, she decided to come to the United States. It seemed like it would be an amazing adventure in 1956. But she heard that Americans might be afraid of strangers, especially if they weren't white. She didn't know that that included Martians...

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... The Proposal"...

Helen's Proposal (533D).jpeg

... It was all so romantic! Bret decided to propose to Helen on Friday night. He'd make them martinis and serve them out on the fire escape outside their charming little studio apartment. They called their fire escape the Rooftop Riviera, although it certainly bore no resemblance to the Riviera, nor was it even on the roof, just on the third floor... but high enough for the pot of geraniums to change their lives forever. Golly, they were going to miss kindly, old Mrs. Dudley who swept the front steps every afternoon.

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... Spring Fever"...

Phil Makes It Clear (533C).jpg

... Phil and Carla started dating in April, and by the end of May they both felt very serious about each other... at least that's what Carla thought and what Phil kept saying... until Carla suggested they go away together for the Memorial Day weekend, and maybe for the whole week. At first Phil was evasive, and then he began to get grumpy when Carla pressed him about going to the Mount Airy Lodge in Ellenville with the heart-shaped bath-tubs. She didn't even notice him pull out the little shank he had gotten when he was in prison...

Tina Cooks Her Brother (533B).jpg

... Tina wanted to help her Dad and Mom with the barbecue on the back patio!... especially because the Fergusons were coming over, and Kelly Ferguson was her best friend in Home Economics class. But Mommy had to explain that Tina's baby brother wasn't the same thing as "Baby Back Ribs"!

Sybil Bruncheon's "More Than They Seem Stories... A Perfect Beach Day"...

Millie CIA (533A).jpg

… Millie had rigged up her beach-kite with a special miniature camera that her big brother Bill gave her. He worked at the CIA as a special-ops assassin. Millie wanted to find out if her husband was being a little too friendly with Betty's husband Carl, the high-school gym teacher. Sadly, he was.... she had Bill take care of it later in an alley behind the Texaco station.
