    Argh what happens next?! Tenterhooks HG!, tenterhooks!!

  2. Claire says:

    Such a triller 👍🏻! I am searching in my Inbox the link and the password for the closed forum to comment.

  3. njfilly says:

    This episode was very exciting! I’m on the edge of my seat!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Glad you enjoyed it.

  4. Kim e says:

    WHAT….WHAT…..WHAT. OMG. Really HG. It is very naughty of you to just keep us hanging 😩😩😩

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Pah! I was the one out there! More to come!

  5. FYC says:

    OMHG! What a cliff hanger!!! Please relieve our anticipation soon, HG, and continue the story! Do you have some time this evening perhaps?!!

    I highly recommend the Knowing HG series to all readers and listeners of HG’s works. To know more about the events and people that have shaped HG’s life and to learn more about HG and his thoughts, feelings, motivations and desires is to gain far greater the depth of understanding of all that is connected to HG and provides invaluable and expanded perspective on everything he shares. This series is not to be missed!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you FYC.

    2. NarcAngel says:

      FYC

      There you are! I was wondering when you’d realize we can’t see your Covid bangs and come back out to play.

      Also
      Your comment would be great for the testimonial page.

      1. FYC says:

        Awww thank you, NA. Covid bangs? More like cousin “It” from The Addams Family! Thank you for your kind compliment and I hope to see you comment more on the KHG forum. Sorry I was away, I am happy to come out and play! I was just doing a bit if introspection. I appreciated your thoughts on perspective a couple days ago–so true. I can’t use the like system, but just assume you have mine under your posts. I hope you are doing very well.

    3. WhoCares says:

      FYC – It was good to see you at the Q&A!
      Sounds like you all have been quite busy in the KHG forum…

      1. FYC says:

        WC, Always a pleasure to see you as well! Would you have interest in the KHG series? I’d love to see you join in. I hope all is going very well with you and yours. How are your son and puppy doing?

        1. WhoCares says:

          FYC (I have a two-part answer, this is the shorter one),

          I thought about it and I am, naturally, interested in the KHG material and sleuthing with all of you but I get caught up in all of it too much and just can’t justify the investment right now…time-wise and otherwise. (Especially with home schooling as of late, etc…)
          But I have been enjoying some of the other new stuff from HG and the last Q&A especially. I also need to put some personal plans into motion and Covid19 is already disrupting some of that but I am hoping to stay on track.
          (Maybe in the summer I will be able to play catch-up with KHG.)

          My son and I are doing well, thanks, although starting to miss seeing some of our friends in person. At least we are safe!

          Hope things are well with you and yours?

        2. WhoCares says:

          I am going to unburden a little here, FYC.
          We do not have the puppy any more. Shortly before Covid-19 hit she had a medical emergency. I tried my best to sort out a solution (including calling 2 regular vets who were not at work that day despite their clinic being open and admin staff on hand, and an emergency veterinarian because she became ill outside of business hours) It was one of those things where you can either monitor to see how things go or implement invasive procedures (that could be completely unnecessary in the long run.) Turns out, she was okay with time and monitoring. However, I couldn’t take the risk. And I couldn’t take the chance that she might suffer in my care because I wasn’t able to provide the level of care that she required. So I made the decision to surrender her (to a place where if she needed emergency care it would be provided) and have her rehomed.
          I won’t lie; it was pretty upsetting. But the fact is that the choice was still within my control. (Unfortunately, when I went through leaving my ex, I tried my best to find a temporary foster home for my cat with no success and I felt such a lack of control over my ability to care for him…it ended up being okay…but I wish it would have been less traumatic for my cat and me.)
          With the puppy, honestly, it ended up being the best call… because despite having good intentions when I got her (companionship for my son and me, plus protection: historically her breed is known for this) and she was a loving and affectionate dog – she had severe separation anxiety when alone and I felt a constant level of low grade anxiety much of the time – because she needed me when I was there and then I felt bad for her when I left. Leaving required so much planning ahead and I was afraid the noises she made (while we were gone) were going to cost me a place to live; couldn’t let that happen. My son loved her but he wasn’t not benefiting in the way that I thought…he played with her yes, and helped train her and feed her etc., but he also resented her because she demanded my time. Yes, he could have learned to adjust to the change…but truth is, I had two very needy and demanding little beings on my hands and a lack of ability to tolerate anymore stress or emotional demands on me. I miss her, and my son misses her (he actually hasn’t talked too much about her since) but I know I made the right choice.
          She is a lovely dog, partly innately, partly because of the time I invested in socializing her and training her – when I did follow up calls on how she was doing, I kept getting comments on what a sweetie she is.
          They do assessments to match a dog with a good home. I couldn’t have lived with myself if she suffered because of my finances and I couldn’t ask anyone to help me…those around me have already helped a lot in the past.

          1. FYC says:

            WC, That is a truly heart-breaking account for the puppy, you and and your son. I would have gladly helped (I mean this literally), but it sounds like you had other concerns too. Puppies are like babies and need constant love, attention, care and ongoing training. Many people do not realize how extensive the time commitment is or how expensive a pet can be, so you are certainly not alone. I am a huge animal lover and they have been my “kids” so I have never been in your challenging situation, but I have volunteered in rescue and have adopted from rescue so I have seen this happen many times. It must have been very difficult, but you know what you can take on. Focusing on your recovery from the N and you and your son getting your lives back together is challenging enough. I wish you all the best.

          2. WhoCares says:

            Thank-you for your kind words FYC.

            I was prepared for the commitment to the puppy and associated needs and I had researched her breed and met similar dogs before….what I wasn’t prepared for was the level of her separation anxiety and the randomness of her swallowing a hairbrush.
            I have gone long stretches of time as an adult without an animal because I respect this kind of commitment.
            I could likely have sorted of the financials – maybe. But I would still have had the other issues to contend with, which were actually more challenging than money. She would have needed another animal companion or someone at home all the time – or me bringing her everywhere with me. Which I did when she was small enough; partly the reason why she was so chill and well socialized in other ways.
            Anyway, I missjudged; it makes me sad but I think I still made the right choice afterwards.
            I actually hated knowing that this information got through to my ex, when my son shared it with him. I was imagining how he would feel knowing I had to give up a pet (that it would make him feel fueled) – the old me would have been traumatized by this. The new me knows that I weighed everything and still managed to act and not be held captive by my emotions…. although, perhaps my emotions got me in that spot to begin with. Point is: the puppy did not have to suffer as a result. Believe it or not she puked up the brush (I had no clue exactly what was wrong with her until she did this) – but I was afraid of internal damage, residual pieces inside…
            This issue is close to my heart because so many people judge on the way someone treats animals… believe me I know what it is like…it is so troublesome for me that, someday, in future I would really like to offer/be involved in a service that helps people deal with the family pet in a situation of leaving abuse (fostering possibly, etc.).

          3. NarcAngel says:

            WhoCares
            You did the right thing and with the best of intention. Realizing early that there is a problem and taking steps to rectify it as painful as that may seem, is much better in the long run than ignoring it and coming to repressed resentment and regret toward the animal that eats at you internally. It results in a mere coexistence that benefits neither. Better to recognize it early and let it go.

            Hmm……

          4. WhoCares says:

            Thank-you NarcAngel. It was painful. (Ask those close to me in real life, who I told afterwards – and the taxi driver who drove me, my son and the puppy.) Still is, at times.

            But it was the right thing to do at the time.

            And I get the rest of the message.

          5. NarcAngel says:

            WhoCares
            The hmm…was not intended as a message to you. It just struck me as I read it back as one of those things that make you go hmm…

          6. WhoCares says:

            I appreciate the clarification NA.
            I know it wasn’t intended to be directed specifically at me, but I responded to direct more attention to your “hmm”.

          7. WhoCares says:

            NA – I remembered a past experience…thought I’d share.

            When I was in highschool, one the things I thought I might like to consider was becoming a veterinarian or vet tech. So I did a placement, through a cooperative education program, at a local vet clinic.
            I liked it. Feeding the animals, bathing the animals etc…even had to force feed a severely obese cat (looked like a beach all and was refusing to eat anything), successfully gave pills to some of the animals (pet owners know how much fun that is), got bit by a half-sedated dog – even sat in and observed surgeries (sprays, neuters, etc…).
            I recall one surgery in particular, it was on a female Collie-mix. A really pretty dog. She was very ill. Her owners had surrendered her. It was very sad because she had never been spayed and got so severe an infection in her reproductive organs that it was poisoning the rest of her body. (I think it was a fallopian tube: basically what should have been similar to a shoe lace was the size of sausage. Nasty.) Once they removed her reproductive organs (along with the infection) and she received the proper follow up treatment, she transformed into the most amazing dog. One of the secretaries took her; think she kept.
            It was this experience that caused me to know I didn’t have what it takes to be a veterinarian…I am not sure I could have handled the emotional end of things. Anyway, it was a sad situation…and now I’ve seen the other side.

          8. FYC says:

            WhoCares, I understand and I already can tell you are a careful, kind and thoughtful person. I do not question nor judge your decision. In fact I wish far more people were as kind and thoughtful. Many keep a dog and do not care for it, or worse abuse and neglect it or do not get the dog the help it needs, and worst of all, they abandon the dog on the street instead of finding an appropriate no-kill shelter or rescue to foster and re-home the dog.

            I have a lot of experience with animals of different kinds (from wildlife to domesticated) and have worked closely with animal behavioralists in the past. You were likely experiencing a very normal puppy development period, but indeed there are some dogs (regardless of breed, but some breeds are more susceptible) that remain with separation anxiety (or other serious behavioral issues) throughout their lives and it can be *very* challenging and expensive and even life-changing.

            In rescue work, I was once on a site visit of an adoptive hopeful. They had hundreds of small children’s toy parts strewn everywhere in and outside the home, a pool of oil on the garage floor (with toys in the oil), and a low fence (less than a meter) with a 30 meter drop-off behind it and asphalt below. I told him it would not be a fit with these hazards. I did not know this at the time, but looking back, the owner was probably a lesser N. He was entirely dismissive then angry/insulting (and never displayed an ounce of empathy). He asked how much dog food cost, and said the dog would not be allowed in the home, only the garage or back yard. He lost his composure when I told him the average first year cost of care. He said he would not spend that on his kids much less a dog and said he would not spend his money to change the low fence and the kids would never pick up their toys. I asked why he wanted a dog; he said, “I don’t. The wife has been nagging me for one to protect her. Their application was declined. Now *that* is someone that should never own a dog, and I felt sorry for the kids.

            I am sure when the time is right in your lives WC, you will once again own a pet. I know this was a very difficult decision, and that you loved the puppy.

          9. WhoCares says:

            Thank-you FYC. I know you were not judging.
            It’s in my nature to want to explain what happened I guess.
            I enjoyed reading of your past animal experience – glad you shared. The description of the toys littered around made me think: our puppy had a greater chance of having a feast of Lego pieces or wooden train track parts (and I was very vigilant about that not happening – hence some of my constant anxiety) but I just couldn’t anticipate the possibility of her getting her chompers on a hair brush and injesting it whole.

            I enjoyed that little insight into you, thank-you.

            I will do it this evening Violetta, it is coming your way!

          2. Violetta says:

            zwartbolleke:

            Stop cutting those bloody onions! (I still can hardly smell them anyway… Hope this isn’t permanent.)

      3. NarcAngel says:

        HG
        Congratulations on the quick 19.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Thank you NA.

      4. njfilly says:

        With scent and anatomically correct.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          You mean stubble, yes?

          1. njfilly says:

            Yes, of course. I’m a lady. But you claimed you could grow a beard in a matter of hours.

          2. HG Tudor says:

            Minutes when I really focus, hurnnnggghhh!

          3. njfilly says:

            Ha Ha! I bet you look cute with stubble. Do you also wear reading glasses and a bowtie? I hear all English men wear bow ties.

          4. HG Tudor says:

            Bow tie when I attend a black or white tie dinner.

            I do not require reading glasses.

          5. njfilly says:

            Whoa!

            I bet you look spanking. (I needed to use that word).

          6. HG Tudor says:

            I see what you did there.

          7. njfilly says:

            I knew you would.

          8. FYC says:

            RE anatomy and “stubble”:

            For some reason, I can hear NA in my head asking you in jest: “Is that what she calls it?!”

          9. NarcAngel says:

            FYC

            Haha. I was behaving, but I do confess to thinking: So what? I can grow stubble in a day – just not on my face.

          10. HG Tudor says:

            Saucy.

          11. FYC says:

            NA, Haha, please do not start behaving now! I thought you had passed the point of stubble and moved on to the comb over?!

          12. Violetta says:

            Oh God, don’t do stubble, HG. Three-day stubble and I’m vanquished. Especially if you grow out the short back-n-sides to a length unacceptable in corporate life….

    2. Lorelei says:

      It’ll be a back sided action figure.

      1. MB says:

        I need all the sides and action figures must be jointed in order to pose them for various adventures. I’d also like to purchase additional outfits and accessories.

        1. HG Tudor says:

          You’ll be ordering a scrap book next….

          1. MB says:

            Ha ha HG! Seriously though, you did say your hair is getting long. Spare just a little lock?

          2. Lorelei says:

            If HG had it like me—the salon would allow he go to them in their home! He should tip better.

          3. HG Tudor says:

            Pretty pointless. I am moving around, they would not be able to find me and I am a long way away from my usual hairdresser. If I really wanted to get my hair cut I could, but I have something else of far greater importance occupying my attention at present than hair cuts.

          4. Lorelei says:

            Understand HG. I actually only did that after my time off when salons were closed but I’d not been to work yet—I’m too high risk to get in anyone’s face. I have had positive COVID patients most days I work. I plan to tone my hair on my own to get me by until I’m off work again in June. I think that it’ll have a balayage look as it grows which was the plan. You can always trim your hair to get by. I imagine the salons will be packed upon re-opening!

          5. MB says:

            Lorelei, something tells me HG is a superb tipper.

          6. HG Tudor says:

            Always read HG Tudor´s work, that is a phenomenal tip!

          7. MB says:

            It will set you free

          8. Lorelei says:

            Not to the $5 muffin peddler!

          9. Violetta says:

            Dammit, he is growing his hair out….

          10. Lorelei says:

            I’ve made scrap books but that was years ago.

          11. MB says:

            I doubt your scrap books were like HG’s. His are psychopathic and creepy. 😳

          12. Lorelei says:

            Oh my. My scrapbooks were of my kids. I don’t want sex books. I like sex but don’t want to see it afterwards! To each his own.

          13. MB says:

            Surely you’ve read Sex, Lorelei! It’s required Tudorite reading.

          14. Lorelei says:

            MB yes I’ve read it. My scrapbooks have Disney princesses on the cover. In clothes. It’s much different.

    3. Mercy says:

      MB, I’d buy that action figure. I want an Alastor one too!! She’s bad ass!

      1. MB says:

        Yasss she is! I’d buy her too!

      2. zwartbolleke says:

        Mercy!
        I’ve considered writing a missing statement for you…where have you been! Everything all right?

        1. Mercy says:

          I’m here and well ZB, no need for a missing statement. I need to catch up! I’m going to check the other forum to see if your comment got posted yet. How have you been?

          1. zwartbolleke says:

            Mercy, I read your comment in the forum. It is impossible for you to follow what is published at this moment. There are 3 comments, only the second is published, so you miss the first and last one.
            We wait patiently, no problem! Going nowhere!

            I’m ok, I’ve missed you in the Q&A, I thought you were prepared and were going to participate!
            I was waiting for your questions so I could join in 😉
            Our boss was in excellent mood!

          2. zwartbolleke says:

            Mercy!!
            It’s published, jeeej!
            Hurry, lots of reading for you!
            💛

          3. Mercy says:

            Omg ZB. I’ve just read everything. Wow I was blown away. But not as blown away as I was at HGs response. I’ve only read his first 2 sentences and I’m completely breathless. Well done my friend!

          4. Mercy says:

            ZB, seriously I’m shaking. I couldn’t even remember how to get back to your comment.

            I encourage anyone who hasn’t followed this series to do so. Zwartbolleke just uncovered a mystery that all of us readers have been asking since we’ve been here.

            HG, you never cease to amaze me with your talent. The way you’ve put this series together is brilliant. Thank you so much for adding this element to your site. There is never a dull moment here.

          5. HG Tudor says:

            You’re very welcome

          6. zwartbolleke says:

            Haha Mercy, I’m dying to read your thoughts on my musings!
            Still so much questions…

          7. Mercy says:

            ZB, yes! You can’t imagine the questions running in my head right now. I will post my response on the other forum. I want to read your comments a few times and look over my notes. I still haven’t had a chance to look over the Q&A yet. Great job girl! I’m so happy for you. I know you worked hard on this.

  8. FoolMe1Time says:

    19 million already, that was fast.
    Congratulations HG! 🍻cheers!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you.

      1. Lorelei says:

        Are you pissed off about hungry hungry hippos in this one again?!!

        1. HG Tudor says:

          No.

          1. Lorelei says:

            It made me laugh because that game really upset you. If we could play operation I’d nudge your arm.

          2. HG Tudor says:

            You’d be under the anaesthetic.

          3. Lorelei says:

            Ugh. The last anesthesiologist I tangled with was MMR—B variety. He’s fun, I may Hoover him to do chores.

    HG, Congrats on 19 million

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you WD.

  10. FoolMe1Time says:

    Oh HG! Just when I was fully engrossed in the story, you ended it! Will we have to wait long for KHG 9?
    This was really really good!

    Why I’m thinking of it would you be able to help get back into the hidden comments .HG? When you have time of course. I have tried numerous times and can not find my way back, even with the password. Thank you!

    Did I mention this was really really good?!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you FM1T. If you email me at about the forum I will provide you with the information to access it.

      1. FoolMe1Time says:

        You are welcome and Thank you HG.

    Oh wow, that was a good one!!

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Thank you Fox.

      Now I KNOW I gotta get back into this.

      1. MB says:

        I’ll get back into the forum too. In the evenings. I’ve been waiting for Part 8 to do so. You won’t be disappointed Lisk. HG delivers the goods!

        1. Lorelei says:

          MB. Will you ask HG if Christy Brinkley is a narc while I nap? I love her.

          1. MB says:

            HG must be worn out from all the truth seeking questions from yesterday OR he may be punishing you for cheating at Operation! FYI…being a narcissist doesn’t preclude you from continuing to love her.

            I have come to similar conclusions, MB. Direct contact with narcs is a bad idea, but nothing wrong with appreciating (from a distance) the ones who’ve contributed something. Angelina did amazing work in Girl, Interrupted and Maleficent; Lennon wrote more classics than I can count; Steve Jobs brought genuine passion to making advances in technology comprehensible to a non-tech audience.

            And…then there’s the guy with the Creed Viking who brought music and poetry to a topic that’s usually dry and clinical or just unspeakably painful.

            Ha ha, very good.

            Violetta, Girl, Interrupted ❤️Would you like to see my eat-in chicken? Why isn’t it on Netflix?! You’ve got me wanting to see it now!

            Good point. Also, Creed’s Love in White for women is nice. I got a bottle off a guy a few months ago (I said I had liked it) that I went out with. (Although we didn’t go out much!) That was idiotic.. It was an offering of kindness when my mother passed. He had some work done for me and I molested him when he came to check on the job due to an issue. Omg. I have an issue!

          6. Tired says:

            No, but her disgusting ex husband was/is a diagnosed narc.
            She’s outspoken about educating the masses , especially within the court system about narcs .
            That’s my Opinion on Brinkley herself.
            Interested to see what HG thinks about her and her Ex

          7. Violetta says:

            Creed Fleurissimo has Violet and Iris. If I get like, you know, a job, I may order a tiny sample from the Perfumed Court to see if I like it, although God knows I don’t need any more expensive addictions. I love the old-fashioned ones like Violette de Toulouse and Devon Violets (which they don’t even make anymore). Nothing wrong with wearing “granny” scents, because the current grannies are wearing Dana Tabu and Faberge Tigress.
