    Lucille, This is June Rough, Mike’s wife (Beam Center people). Mike heard about you and your books at Caroline’s Coffee from the gentleman who bought your house in Alta Sierra. We have often thought fondly about you and Ward over the years. I have a Kindle so I bought your books. They are very funny and I love tongue-in-cheek comments. So entertaining and well written. You have a great deal of talent. We hope to get by to see you before too long. Where are you residing now? Would it be an inconvenience to call first and make a time to come see you? I am 77 years old now so you can understand why I so enjoy your essays. Haven’t read the book as yet. Keep up the great work. Hugs, June


  2. I am delighted that you are finding this avenue to share your thoughts and writing. It is fun to read what you have written, and I have several to go. Forgive me now, if you can, for changing the focus of this reply, and coming to you for guidance concerning my own attempts at writing. Perhaps you might be willing to act in the capacity of editor and read maybe the first chapter?

    I have always wanted to write and have perhaps the misfortune to have been told by those who receive emails or notes from me, that I am “good at it”. SO I admit when I saw the article in the paper about you, I thought, well maybe she is the contact I need to find an avenue to publication of my “stuff”. Of course, I am not at all sure that I have anything to say that anyone other than family would be interested in, but the words come spilling out. At present, I have started on the eleventh chapter of this sort of memoir book, and only my daughter, my father, and now you, know about my effort.

    AND I am technologically challenged, and terrified that I will have to find a way to transport all that I have written to a disk, and not send along a manuscript typed on “word”.


  3. Lucille, I just read your article about having vertigo and if you can leap about while dizzy, I say blood pressure be damned! Enjoy!

      Fantastic! And right on–from a contemporary. Will there be more?

        As always, one is charmed and delighted. You even make growing old seem fun!
