New Story Posted

Well, I've posted a new Jonny and Lou story. It was originally written in the first person present, and so I adapted it to be in the third person past. I hope I caught all of the old parts, but if I didn't, I hope you, the reader, will understand. Let me know if there are too many mistakes.
As to my last blog entry, all I can say is thank you to those of you who took the time to write to me with your suggestions. I'm still mulling them over and maybe I will submit to an editor a story.

However, I do want to say something to those who thought that starting a note with "I haven't read anything you've written, but . . ." would make me take their comments to heart. I read that and by eyes glaze over. I have a very difficult time paying attention. To me, it's the same as if you had said, "I don't vote, but . . ." and then you complain and bitch about what's going on in the country or the community. My ears shut off because I don't think you have the right to bitch if you don't vote. I know it's your choice to not vote (or not read), but I don't have to listen to someone who doesn't put themselves on the line to make a choice. It's that simple: read my stuff and then bitch, but if you're not reading, pipe down!

Again, thanks to my readers and their comments. I truly do appreciate it.
