My pleasure, Nonnie. Always pleased to help make things good.
Thank you, Nonnie, for commenting on and faving "Never Let Me Go". I'm glad you enjoyed the "mind trek".
Thank you, Nonnie, for reading and the kind words regarding "Metastasis".
Well, it's taken me months to get back to you too. I forget to check old stories for comments. Thanks for the Hair and the Whore. Family Therapy is a good group. gg
Hi Nonnie, thanks for commenting and faving "Middle Age." I'm happy you enjoyed it.
Nonnie, thanks for the notes on the "MacGowans." We forgive your Catholic heritage. Our family history is so lost that I've decided to just lie it up. Dad also said we were directly descended from Charlemagne . My wife's African American so I think we'll need some Zulu Kings or the West African equivalent for the kids... we're already set up with nose bleeds and migraines.
Nonnie, I just saw you quoted on my birthday piece. Thanks and I'm delighted it introduced me to you a little bit more.
Thanks, Nonnie for the comment on " Under the Skin." Yeah, those are all the questions I had too and no better answers.
Nonnie, thank you much for your perceptive reading of Four Hearts and a Vase of Jonquils. Your generous words are encouraging.
Nonnie, your kind words for my poem Conjured Love are encouraging. As I haven't studied poetry much, my own stuff tends to the instinctual or imitative.
Hi Nonnie, thanks for reading and commenting on a bar for all occasions. I always appreciate your time and thoughts. fos.
Hi, Nonnie. Thanks for reading 'Assiduity Five.' I greatly appreciate your comment.
Yes, I did first write Saratoga in third person and thought I caught them all, but they're sneaky, like minnows. I will trap the three you found. Thank you so much for telling me. Of course that confuses the reader. Bless you!
So happy you are here!!
Hi Nonnie. I hope that you had a great time in Pensacola - I remembered that you were going.
How wonderful for you that your brother visited. It's nice to see a friendly face around here. :)
Hi Nonnie :)
