Hi Tom,

Good to hear from you again. Actually the hugging pic was sent to me by someone I know on a digital art forum. I mentioned how much I loved the written word as much as I did my art. Sometime later I received that picture.

I'm not sure if the sender is the author of the image (he is a photoshop artist) or he snagged it from somewhere or someone else. I never asked, but it has been a favorite of mine for awhile....=)

Love the video of your PuTTy cats, Tom. Dakota (the one swiping at the cars?) clearly has a "personality", but I thought the cat laying on the floor watching Dakota (or is he/she watching the races?) was just as cute...*grins*

Actually, I don't fancy Facebook much, but I occasionally log into my 'one and only' account for family and old close girlfriends. I should make a new account just for my reading buddies...hmmm Now that's a nice thought. =)

BTW, was skimming your library and found "The Delectable Dollies by Gary Chapman". I thought I might like it, so I decided I'd make a quick purchase online and give it a good read some day. I'll have to do some more browsing through your books though, given that we both seem to like similar material.

Best regards,
Hi Tom,

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been logged onto LT for awhile. Been out of town where I didn't have internet access. Thank you for the thumbs up on my choice of images. I photoshopped the "fire below" image. Originally, the vintage lady was holding a Holiday Inn brochure, however I added one of those cheesy vintage covers. Now it looks like an advert for rotten crotch...*grins*. Anyway, thank you for the nice message. It was so good to hear from you.

I'd also like to add, before I close, that I haven't had an opportunity yet to view all your books, although so far I see you have some interesting books that I might be curious about. I can hardly wait to see what you've read so far or hope to read in the future.

Take care,
Thanks! Her name is Bean :)
