    Congratulations! Getting this in my email box is like getting a slice of mystery pie… sometimes sweet, sometimes savory. Always something i want to try. I’m really proud of you. It takes a lot to put your self out there and share your self and bare your soul. You have plunged into waters way more chilling than Lake Chapman already, my dear. And emerged! Yay for THE Baddest Mother Ever!

    I’m so happy to be part of your “numbers” — and I, too, get to say, “I knew her when…” as in when we were 6 or 7…whew…that’s a long time ! Please keep writing. Your stories bring smiles, tears, therapy, memories, and so much more !
