    darn! I had a story ready and everything, then my son needed something--I'll make better plans next time! I hope I'll have a photo of ME not my currently 27 year old son with his 1st steps...tho I love the picture.
    OK, guys, see you next time! Looks like a great, friendly met-up.

    I am reading an exercise in brain stretch! It is creative and I invite you all to bring your creative works to the mic! Sometimes the best work is the one that stretches us the most..tis so on the silver screen!

    Looking forward to this weeks Dime Story meet-up-(: Hopefully bringing a guest who is a very provocative writer. I have written a first-part of the first chapter of a book, or I hope it will be one day.
