Notes -

Please feel free to review my writing. I am anxious to learn what people think.

It is interesting to see "Jake" lagging my other stories in downloads as it is the only story to actually have been published.

I know, I never charged before. But I am trying Google books and I think I *have* to charge. In any event, if this fails, I'll make them free again...thanks for reading.

It happened at 10:57 on a sun-drenched morning in March in the middle of the first reading (Exodus 17:3-7) just as the lector, Bill Potter, read aloud about Moses striking the Rock of Horeb and the water flowing forth for the people, and their children, and their livestock to drink.

What's a new car cost anyway? "It was after seven already and Mary and I were supposed to take the insurance money down to the car lot and get her a new mini-van. One with a functioning fuel pump this time. Which would be a problem since the insurance money is never enough to buy another car like the one’s been wrecked."
Seamus Out

The two dogs were going round in circles, from dog dish to dog dish, not believing that their dinner was done, and they were driving me crazy which is probably why I just opened the back door and scootched them out with the side of my foot before I realized that Seamus didn't have his chain on...
