It’s that time of year again, that time when Girl Scout cookies are sold, purchased, and consumed in mass quantities. Many of us wait expectantly all year long for those tables to be set up outside of stores and piled high with boxes of sugary confection. Or when someone at work passes around that sheet of paper where we are allowed to make a commitment to spend our hard earned cash on a few boxes of sumptuous morsels of delight. Like I have done for many years, I succumbed to the pressures of a little girl (it didn’t take much) when I exited the grocery store. I purchased my usual. And I’ll probably do the same again the next time I walk out the exit door of the supermarket, tomorrow, the day after that, and the day after that.

On another note, I should finish up with a compilation of short stories before the end of the summer. I’ve decided to title the book “The Lady In The Pink Underwear.” There’s story in there about a lady in pink underwear.
I am, also, working on another story that I recently mentioned on a FaceBook page I follow. I’m not sure if this is going to be a short or long story. I’m kind of leaning towards something in the middle. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
