    1. Thanks, SHIRLEY, and could u read on your computer? U may have to wait till the collection releases in the fall. Honestly, though, I don't think Murray is going to be able to wait till then. Kathy Maher and I both have novellas so that makes up over a half of a standard size book right there. Hugs!
