Thanks for the invitation. It's always seemed to me (without getting too heavy) that reviewing confirms that the whole business of reading is a collaboration between reader and writer. Both bring something to the fiction, both create the characters and settings. Uhoh - getting heavy. Better stop and eat some chocolate.
RJ, Thank you for contacting me. I like your profile, and choice of books and shows. I too enjoy true crime, which is why I write faction (Thank God for Truman Capote!). I was inspired to write my very Aussie unresolved murder story of 1935 because at the time the crime was reported as being "so professional, it must have been done by an American mobster." Now you Americans can keep your Al Capones and Bugsy Malones, (who were pussycats compared to our Razorgangs). You can even take our Ugg boots, (and our Vegemite), but we'll keep our own high profile killers thankyou. What would our history books be without them?
Hi! I would have agree with the others and say it is a very nice-looking puppy.
I keep a large amount of goldfish in a 160 litre pond in our front yard. I have had them for years now and they are beginning to eat me out of house and home.
Next month I'll be at Lake of the Torches Casino in Wisconsin, which is like my second home on vacation.
My friends and I spend hours there while my husband fishes. I've heard they've got lots more new penny machines there (of course to win anything decent, you have to spend at least 45 cents)
They're lots of fun and have plenty of different screens and stuff.
I confess, slots is second to my writing addiction.
Funny Thing about Harah's in Joliet. I went there over a year ago and lost heftily, as did my two friends. Then I was clearing the kitchen table a week or so later of a large stack of junk mail I'd not got around to going through. On the bottom was a promotion from Harrah's.
This was the promotion where Harrah's made a huge mistake on their part and sent out comp cards to people saying all they had to do was come in and they'd get $625.00, no strings attached. It was ruled legal by a judge and I'd heard about it. Harrah's lost all kinds of money on it. Anyway there was still time left on my card so I went there the following Saturday, bet a dollar in a machine so it would be recorded I was there, in case they made another mistake and sent out cards to people who were there that day. I collected my money and went home!
