Funny stuff, my friend. I love your sense of humor and humility mixed with, I don't know, pride maybe? In a good way.

I am behind on reading, and lots of other stuff. I had to have my parents put in Assisted Living, and my Dad is on 24 watch as his systems shut down from cancer. I'm on here as a diversion.

I'll catch up on the reading soon.

Take care,
Rhonda

    Oh, Rhonda, I'm so sorry about your dad. It's so hard to see a parent be less than the strength he was when we were kids. I'm glad you had a chance to read this, and that it gave you some diversion. Hang in there.

reply by davisr (Rhonda) on 15-Mar-2018
    You are so right. It really is hard. Thanks for understanding,
    Rhonda

    He passed away Saturday evening. My mother isn't handling it well, as she's not in the best of shape, either. As we say in Texas, "Bless her heart". Bless yours, too.

reply by the author on 21-Mar-2018
    I'm sorry for your loss, Rhonda, and can only imagine how your mother feels. Yes, truly, bless her heart!

Getting up in front of an audience can be very intimidating. I enjoyed how recalled the events and bombed on a couple of missed opportunities. Oh well, there's always a lesson to be learned. By the way, the romantic research is a classic unintended flub, dirty old man, lol.

Take care,
Russell

You are very determined in your poetry, I notice. Good on you. I couldn't read out loud in front of other people, I would be too nervous, and I think you have to read with feeling and conviction, not my strong suits, I'm a more silent reader type of person, but I admire what you go through to get your poetry out there, and I like your bio. I hope the salesman, optimist, and dreamer continue to reside with you. Ana.

I've been to a couple of open mic readings, I don't think I'm good at them, one must be a vibrant, confident speaker, (I'm OK, but not a natural public speaker) or read bawdy bush ballads. Well done Jay, I'm motoring through your novel, I should be finished by the 15th, well done good luck, blessings, Roy

    Thank you, Roy. I'm glad to hear about what you think of my public reading. I don't know whether you read of my exploits with my first reading in February.

reply by royowen on 13-Mar-2018
    Well done both Jay

There's no way I old read anything I've written in front of strangers! Well, maybe after a couple of Long Island Ice Teas I might. I enjoyed your story and progression from anticipation to sleeplessness. Just one thing...you mention your jacket was draped on the back of your sear, and then shortly after, you were taking off your jacket. I look forward to your next Sticky Notes.
Smiles,
Karyn :-)

    Well, you stinker. It did happen that way. I had my jacket there to reserve my table, put it on when I came back, but when she closed the door and the heat closed in around me, I took it off again. I think I needed to say I put my jacket back on when I returned from my selling exploits. But you were right in the seeming inconsistency of it. Thank you for reading, Karyn, and thanks again for the Book review.

You have a terrific way with words, and a marvelous sense of humor that get me laughing out loud every time. I'm not surprised you did well in front of an audience. I wish you all the best with your book. Although I've given you my email address several times, I still haven't receive any of your news letters. I had a lot of problems with it and you might try this one instead: smurphgirlpetrova@outlook.com

    Sasha, part of the problem is the delivery system. I've changed newsletter providers since then. You should receive this next one. Thanks for your support, Sasha.

I got that memory-foam pillow in the mail, Like a rolled-up towel in thick plastic wrap. I broke the wrap, and after two days the thing is still growing. If I drop off the grid--just fattening my review. Excellent description of something I would never tackle...

Hi Jay, I enjoyed this great writing that had me engaged all way through. You have a great way with words, and I'm not surprised you did well in front of an audience. All the best.

I have no sixes or this would have received. You are a born writer, and even more so when irony and humor work together.
Some are born with it. You are.
A lovely piece of writing, even if information based. I could have read more.
My best wishes.
RG

    RG, to get a review like this from you brings on the tears. I have such respect for you, my friend. Thank you for taking time to read it.

reply by RGstar on 11-Mar-2018
    Hi, Jay
    Just to let you know that my new work will be released in about an hour's time. I am telling you this as you are one of my fans and it will not appear in your mailbox again as it was released early by the system, unfinished, and was deleted, and will not show released again in your mailbox, but you can now read it, if you are interested to do so, and it suits your ear... with curtesy, not for the sake of stars, just the option of knowing it is available, than not knowing. It will be also on the front page.
    My best wishes. :) Have a beautiful Sunday

reply by the author on 12-Mar-2018
    I'm seeing this at near midnight. I'll check it out tomorrow, RG. Thanks for the heads up.

    Jay
