Love this writing

I loved this piece by my Smoky Mountain Soul Sister, Kerry Madden.

My two favorite parts:

They led a back-deck life of wine and jazz and never went anywhere except to visit troubled adult children "in the desert."

and

If something needed fixing, Connie would appear in her wig and muumuu and sad story about the price of things.

Thank you, Barbara...so funny that Connie and Jack were the ones that stand out...long years of frustration in the place. Thank you, thank you. It was a back-deck life.

All best

Oh Barbara, Connie, may she rest in peace is long overdue to be resurrected from my dead novel and put into something new. But the "new" novel goes out to editors very soon. I cut that sucker way down, and I'm just hoping it finds a home. It was a sweet Thanksgiving. My mother-in-law said something so funny and so crude I can't even post it, but when you're 85 and mother of 13 anything goes. Thanks for reminding me of this one. xxoo
