Leslie--as usual, I wrote a WHOLE BUNCH over on the fanfiction website...forgot to say though what a hoot the line about the toilet seat was! Asked about: the camera,  noted that Tom would fit in REAL WELL on BetterMost, still wondering about the liberality of Texas, exccept for one old crazy coot, talked about an old Selma, Alabama recepe for coffee, and said thjat I, like the rest of your fans, would go mad if you were to stop now.

I bought myself a new Oscar promo book, cause I about wore out the old one, scanning.

Hey Julie,
I'm looking forward to reading your comments. The review hasn't been posted yet (I know it can take time). I usually get an email when there is a new review, but for some reason, those are coming many days later (they used to come immediately).

I thought you would mention tchotchkes! Maybe you did...

Don't worry, I'm not going to stop writing. This story is inside me and it's gotta come out.

Thanks again!
Leslie

That yiddish word for thingamabobs--I never heard it till I was God knows how old, but maybe I lust lived in the wrong neck of the woods--very few knick-nacks in out house. I haven't the foggiest whether they wouold have used it or not, so I didn't comment.

Forgot to say I'm writing a fanfiction--think I forgot to say--and I pay NO attention to detail of surroundings..although I think I may a couple..it's all dialogue and thinking, and if I so much as mention the brand name of a car, it';s too much...I crossd out most of this paragraph, because I said too much. I can't BELIEVE nobody's written this story yet! Shut up, Julie (it's--definitely! not your cup of tea).

Dialogue just keeps CROWDING into my head...it's another miracle, like my..tears. It's been so many years.

Hey Julie,
I want to read your story!

I pay lots of attention to detail and working hard to get things correct to the time period (also dates...for anyone that's interested, July 4 1976 was a Sunday). Along those lines, you asked about Instamatic cameras...Polaroid are the instant ones, Instatmatics were the inexpensive cameras from Kodak that used cartridges to load the film. If you want to learn more, check here:
