Did I thank you yet for your kind "Born Here" comments?
thank you for your comment on my Lydia Davis story. Greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the invite, Bill. This is pretty cool, indeed...

Kudos on that classic line and your PANK story.

Way to go regarding Annalemma. VERY impressive.
Thanks so much for checking out my story in Black Heart. That's, ah, a bit of a departure for me but I enjoyed writing it on the train, though I was sure the guy next to me was reading my scribbles and calling the cops.
Hey there, thanks so much for checking out "Always with Us" and adding me as a contact. Take care, David
