I've been working on my book dummy. Thank you Photoshop for all your help! This was done completely piece-meal - lots of paths going on here. And Pickles, for a moment, was modeled by a memory or two of my own as a child.... I was skinny then, when all my friends were getting curves! Names like "Toothpick", "Boney Maroney", and "Pirate with a Sunken Chest" come to mind. ;o)

The other afternoon, as I walked into the home of My Three Grandsons, I was handed a stack of paper by my 8 year old, Jace - before I could put my purse down.
"I wrote a story in class today, Mammy. Look!" Here's a boy who adamantly tells everyone that he HATES to write!
I read it. "It's brilliant!" I told him with pure sincerity and excitement .... "BRILLIANT!!" I repeated. He might as well have written a Pulitzer Prize winner.
I know one thing, I'll never think of the sun and the moon in the same way.
