    Amazing reading! I forgot all about this story until you posted it. Thank you so much!!! You’re still doing short lengthed stories. If you are still in that frame of mind, perhaps “A Small, Good Thing” By Raymond Carver soon?

    I really enjoy the Canadian readings! Thank you so much for exposing us to think they are nothing more than “Hockey, the looney, and a dangerous league of football.” Thanks for your response, I feel EXTREMELY special and look forward to your next steps into the Canadian Sheild of authors!
