  1. Thank you! I guess I have some work to do. Hmm. Ok, I’ll give this some thought. By the way, I hope you don’t mind, but I edited your comment slightly to correct the URL, as the original was a broken link.

    And, everyone else, do be sure to show Delilah Night some love and check out her blog and her stories. I know you’ll love them, as I sure do. 🙂


I would love to hear from you!
