    My wife Susan and I are well.� Thank you for asking.� We drove up to Charlotte on Thanksgiving day to take Susan’s mom out to lunch, then drove back to Canton that afteroon.� Long day in the car but we had Dylan with us to keep the mood incredibly somber…..NOT!�

    I found�it so interesting that you are publishing a book of poetry because I have just recently tried my hand at that art form having read an article in the AJC about the current Poet Laureate who has Atlanta ties. (Natasha Tretheway)� I’ve always been a Dr. Seuss kind of poet with a need to create a rhthym and rhyming theme, so I thought it would be fun to really just write lines.�I’m sure that’s how they teach poetry at Harvard.� OK people just write some lines put a title and your name on it and you’re offically a poet !� That’ll be $80,000 per year please.

    Anyway purchased your Pale Blue Mercy book of poetry�and can’t wait to get our copy.� Hope you’re treating hubby with the compassion he has earned.� (He�paid me to make that statement)

    Hi, there! Nice to meet you. Thanks for the comment about my little Sundae girl; she just reminded me of an ice cream sundae with her vanilla ice cream, caramel/butterscotch and just a touch of chocolate!
    I’m having a look around your site: like what I see, and love your title and header! I’m in the south too – Virginia.

  7. Many thanks, Dianna. Welcome to the southern Saturday Evening Porch!

      Can’t wait! I sure hope I actually ordered your book. I’m pretty sure I did, but it was so long ago, I can’t remember now. I guess I’ll know if and when it comes in the mail.

  14. Hold the phone, Reeling! How did I miss this? You’re publishing a book? That’s amazing! Congratulations! 🙂 I read the bio on the link you posted, and since I don’t know your real name, I wasn’t sure this was you, but now I’ve re-read the post and I see that it is! And you have quite the impressive bio. I’m so happy for you, and I can’t wait to read it. What a nice Christmas present to yourself — to have a book all set to publish. Woo-hoo!
