I received this message from a writer that I admire on Bubblews. Her name on the site is leepay. The lady is in her eighties and writes delightful vignettes about her senior years.
“Good Morning Virginia, I’m stopping by to let you know that I am reading your mom’s stories on “Our Echo.” They are wonderful stories and wonderful memories.
The timing of some of them is almost parallel to my life but the adventures are very different. I joined the WACs as a young 16-year-old and it was an escape from poverty for me but I did not like being a WAC and got out as soon as I could and from that stepping stone my many adventures began …. your Mom has inspired me to write a few of these adventures and I shall share them here on Bubblews.
Thank you for sharing your Mom with me and us. She is an incredible lady. I do so admire her. It’s obvious that you inherited her love of stories ….. your writing talent is a reflection of her writing style – It’s easy, non-stop reading.”
I’m excited that leepay is going to write about her early memories. She illustrates her posts with the cutest artwork that she creates on the computer. Just click on her name to go to her profile there. Be sure to read the story about “My Worst Christmas Ever.” It really touched me.
