P-Moms and “Fingernails”
Ed ~ July's read was a bit too
moving. I'm not fond of
tearing up at my computer. My
daughter is having a baby in September, her first (my first grandkid). The first letter
for July, needless to say, gave me chills.
And huge admiration, as was also the case for your second
Then came your illustrated
I have an old monitor (1994 vintage I'm waiting for the prices

I may not have gotten every detail in your photos, but your nails
don't look that bad. I keep mine very short and polished, but the pitting and

Also, 90% of the really awful grammar gaffs I’ve made — the
ones you simply can’t forgive — are eventually corrected following
your instructions. (As
you’ve probably determined I’m incorrigible, these days you’re only
pointing out the worst.)
is, therefore, with more thanks than I can express, that I am glad to
dedicate our new section — Flaker Creativity —
to you. What I’ve done to
get the new section launched is compiled what’s archived that can be
defined as “creative writing.” As

you for this, Sherry. Thank
you for everything. -Ed
