Good catch, Mlou. Thanks. I'm just another "space cadet," but this thing was knocked out in less than 30 minutes, so forgive the lapse.

I deleted the phrase as unneeded.

It's taken all these months, but "Angel in My Coffeee Cup" will be up on Bewildering Stories on Aug. 2. I had blown it off as sappy until I scrambled to read something, anything, at a writing group. Surprise--the group like it, and I liked it. So did the editors.

Good for you to be getting off FB--but it's fun. Hey, listen, doesn't Wordtrip have a feed to let you knw when there's a response to a thread you're on? I just happened by to check somethng and saw your note.

Was up in your neck of the woods a week ago. Northfield, Mass., and then on to Lexington.

I don't think Northfield is very far from us. Brattleboro is barely over the border of both Mass. and NH. If you want our # in case you ever get back this way, PM me. :)

Yep, my people came from Chester, Vt., grandparents were at Northfield and Mt. Hermon school. All are buried in Northfield where we can keep an eye on them once or twice a year.

"Angel in My Coffee Cup" remained dormant, read it at a writers' group recently, and then submitted. Story's up now at Bewildering Stories, at http://bewilderingstories.com/issue394/angel.html
