Mail bombing and a look back at "How the Good Gifts Were Used by Two"

As a storyteller I must have my contact information, including my email address, in many places all over the internet.  Unfortunately someone has taken it and managed to "mail bomb" me with thousands of emails from all over the world.  At the same time, and possibly inter-related to keep me occupied, my financial identity has been hacked.  To say I feel swamped is an understatement.  The story of "How the Good Gifts Were Used by Two" popped into my head without realizing I had presented it here back on April the 14th, 2018.

It's a wonderful story taking the old idea of saints returning to earth and the consequences.  It shows what should happen to those offering hospitality and those who don't.  It's no wonder it popped into my mind in this instance as both those with good intentions and those who are selfish wind up doing an activity all day long.  It would be worth going to Project Gutenberg for the entire book of The Wonder Clock.  The subtitle says it is "Four & twenty marvelous tales, being one for each hour of the day."  The stories are indeed marvelous, as are Pyle's sly illustrations.

I'm currently trying to find a way to resolve both of my issues, but hope you can understand if something gets lost in my email at this time.
