99 New: Under the Wire

I woke with a start, you know how you do, suddenly remembering that I’d forgotten to post and now it is just minutes before midnight. Someone might think I had a heart attack or was in a car accident or had too much to… Continue Reading “99 New: Under the Wire”

Where Do You Draw Your Blogging Line?
