Thanks for the shout out Glynn. Always humbled and honored that you would choose something I wrote to be worthy of mention. Hope your back is healing.

S. Etole said...

Appreciate this, Glynn ... look forward to some of these I have missed.

{that cat was a hoot!}

Mark D. Roberts said...

Thanks, Glynn, for the link.

Michael Dodaro said...

Thanks, Glynn. That story was written more than thirty years ago and relates events that happened forty years ago. Probably it is better in retrospect than it was freezing up on the mountain.

Maureen said...

Thank you for the double-mention.

Nance's image is certainly intriguing.

Have a great weekend.
