L.S. Murphy I don't believe in writer's block. If a piece isn't working, then I'm not ready to write it. I move on to something else and come back to it later.

Thayer Berlyn Greeting LS~

Thank you for the friendship :) I see you are living in Minneapolis. I grew up there. If you listen to WCCO 830 AM at 10 o'clock PM, you can listen to TD Mischke, a man I theorize is the actual reincarnation of Samuel L. Clemens. The wit and verve is like no other.
