Brothers Campfire Looks Hard For Materials

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

Recently, Geoff Stamper complimented me on my endless flow of material . Thanks Geoff!

In reality, it is a last minute Suicide Squeeze Hoping I hit home plate and the batter makes first.

I do what I can.

In other news,

I was honored to be texted by a total stranger. I googled the number, and found the approx location. (Numbers can be spoofed regardless)

Due to a full moon, I chose to be Jeptha Berengar, the Beast.

(Jeptha is a fictional character that gets unstable when the moon is full.)

In our text, I sensed my location was mistaken for saying, “so long,” as in goodbye. I couldnt let this happen.

It was time for Jeptha to be himself and disclose his condition.

It took 5 minutes of pondering, Anna responded and gave Jeptha Berengar a name!

Eleven long minutes teanspired for Jeptha. I went about my business and let it ride. Anna sent her photo!

Jeptha did not want to lead Anna astray from her San Diego getaway and revealed more about himself. This led Anna to stop responding.

Poor Jeptha, he was only telling the fictional truth. If only she knew what a pequin was.

You might see me as mean. I get these on a regular basis just like many of you, and tastefully have fun with them.

Some are all bad so I leave them alone.

I wish for everything thay my name was Dayanara. It would have been my lucky day.

Some are kinda duds.


I ignore due to time constraints.

And yet others are pure gold. I hope she finds Davis.

All that to say, Geoff Stamper, I have to scrape the bottom of the barrel fairly often to get material!

    Oh boy! I love the ones on Facebook that go something like this: “Hi Nancy. I’ve been reading your lovely posts and looking at all wonderful photos. They are beautiful but not as beautiful as you. Your smile is enchanting and I would love to be your friend but I am unable to leave you a friend request. Would you please send me a friend request? I think we have much in common and I would so love to be your friend.” Yeah, I’m sure you would, perv! Not gonna happen, like ever. We have nothing in common starting with the fact that I am not a stalker. I wonder how many women (and men) fall for this and then can’t get rid of the sleezeball who wanted to be their “friend”. The mixed up, shook up world of social media.

      Ha ha! To be a devil’s advocate, what part of the example you gave made them a pervert? I am assuming the false pretense that they are looking to be friends, when they may want something more.

      1. The Sicilian Storyteller says:

        Bingo! These guys write the same thing on other women’s sites, word for word, hoping someone will take the bait. I consider that stalking and a stalker is a perv.

    LOL! You get the fun stuff! Well, maybe I would, too, if I stopped instantly spam!-blocking random texters (some of whom seem convinced that I’m Destany and/or Tiffany, and who sometimes move from state to state..).

    You do come up with some great stuff. I noticed Geoff only updates once a week now.

    This gives me so much inspiration when I run into a leech or a scammer again. Thanks a lot and have a nice day!

    I don’t know what I’ve done correctly, for sure or what really works in tech land, etc., but – I don’t get any txts like this and very few emails – usually int he spam folder to be cleared out – but – well – in the end – you are doing in real life what, someday, I might choose to do, when I’m retired (like ever!) and bored (cuz my to do list is finally done and I can’t think of a single other thing to do with my time…) – I heard it first from James Veitch Ted Talk in “Replying to Spammers” and now – from you – AWESOME! Know ‘how to’ sorta kinda, if ever I decide I want to – LOL
