Tropical Crime & Punishment

Now this has got to be a keeper for the micahfiles....and even worthy of sharing with the CF'ers! Well written, amusing and thought provoking. Nothing about anchors though. Sry.

Ps 139:9-10 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

A great story told by a wise man. A man who actually paid attention to the strange environment in which he lived and had begun to understand the culture that surrounded him.

Fun story, I really enjoyed it! Thanks for posting it. I hope I am as smart as he was when I get there!

Re: Tropical Crime & Punishment

good story. If you like reading about life on nearly non populated island, read Tom Neale's "an island to oneself " some time.
