I always feel friendly toward you...even when my bills are crushing me (which is a lot lately) Peace be with you.
Thanks for the kind words yesterday. With so many lining up to kick a guy when he's down, a friendly voice was refreshing.
For the longest time, I thought maybe you were an attorney who liked jelly beans because your location sounded like "laws and jellies".
Merry Christmas, Kevin! And a Blessed New Year to you and yours.
Happy Thanksgiving, Kevin!
Enjoyed your story in the microfiction thread. Thannks for playing.
Thanks for the review, and glad you liked it.
Very kind of you to say. And I'm flattered you deemed it worthy of a second read and even find it a bit daunting. Anything you can recognize, you can reach. So let there be only inspiration, no crushing. I'll probably sub it at some point, though it'll be a tough sell. Might save it for a collection. Publishing ain't what it used to be back when Faulkner could pull down a good living from shorts. I've sold lots of pieces (mostly, except for SF, for peanuts) but get my best sense of readership on WF.
Oh my gosh, I can totally see her -- that's strange indeed. The picture is still up as my profile picture -- just not my avatar.
Does it add to the story any to know that it's a squirrel that got stuck in my chimney - we managed to save it, but we were late enough that it only ran a few paces, lapped some water from a dish, then died?
