thanks for reading "under the apple tree". much appreciated. the tin man thanks you, too.
Rebecca thank you so much for your comment about "Elizabeths". I started that story (gulp) 15 years ago not long after discovering Amy Hempel. It was a beginning and kind of a mess. I left it alone (not intentionally) for 15 years and just found it a few weeks ago, it needed a lot of reworking and editing but it is a favorite for this reason. I suppose it was my first flash piece. You are so kind for saying what you did:) xo
Thanks, Rebecca, for your thoughtful suggestions.

Hi Rebecca, thanks for making my day with your Parker House Roll! (thanks for the read, too)
thank you for your nice words and for being here. and when can we do that interview? I have not forgotten, have been underwater. How is May?
Thanks, Rebecca, for commenting on "Disappearing Ink." I appreciate it very much.
Thanks for the comment, and more, for turning up again: a pleasant surprise.
Thanks for reading Cashed :)
I used to be Quenby, Rebecca. I think maybe we were facebook friends when I was Quenby - ? Your brilliant Dorothy Parker piece made me realize I'm missing you among my friends. I feel I instantly bonded with you over the Parkerhouse rolls.
Thank you, Rebecca! I knew a Marilyn Coffey once in New York, many years ago.
Rebecca - thank you for your extremely kind comment on "Brain Chem"
Thanks for reading "The Devil's Inkwell." It is full of sorrow . . .
Thanks for your comment on "Sphincter," Rebecca. A little memoryshot!
Rebecca, Thank you so much for reading -- and commenting -- on my work. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
thanks for yer comment, rebecca ... if you can read a story again not knowing this could mean it's forgettable or it has embedded itself in your unconscious. i pick the latter ;-)
Yeah, and without the drunks.
Are we having fun yet? I'm so pleased at all the acclaim your story is reaping....
Hi Rebecca, thanks for reading and commenting on Cactus - I'm happy you liked it.
rebecca--just saw your kind comment on "one more thing"--and many thanks. best to you in your work,
Thanks for your comment on Party Line. Yes, what a phone conversation to eavesdrop on!
thank you for your kind words about "A Salty Slutty Bird". Greatly appreciated!
I liked the hell out of your story and am so happy you liked mine. Thanks again.
hi rebecca, thank you for your kind words on my fungus. no, that didn't come out right. you know what i mean. especially if you wrote about anna freud, i am in deep trouble now. truth is i LOVE anna freud (i love anything freudian) and i must get your book when it comes out. and we have something else in common: i also live on oxygen. the other thing, the love, comes from folks like you. thanks!
David Sedaris and Lorrie Moore? I want to be on your team!
