Welcome to my story collection! dime

My site name, “Stories in a Dime of Time” (DOT Stories) reflects how each story is 2000 words or less, so most readers can finish one in 10 minutes, or a “Dime of time“. The theme of each is fun and often rowdy, autobiographical stories about growing up.

Surely,  you have 10 minutes for a quick  adventure.
