I'm having a bad day, lots of pain, in fact leaving work in a few mins to go home and lie down. This story made me smile and everything seems so much more magical now. Stop whatever you are doing and read it.

good advice. sounds like just what i need. i'm going to finish what i'm in the middle of and take a "short story break".

i hope you feel better, DG.

I've only written about cats a few times, as in my family there's been a kind of...well, let's say not so nice history with our feline chums (a long and bitter history when it comes to cats)

I'm still wondering who that Cat is, and why she was there? I think maybe she has a story of her own to tell at some point in the future. I'll just have to keep my ear open for her purring

O.K., I'm back and trying to catch up on all the posts around here I've barely gotten through part of them...

I loved "Sleeping Dogs"! I could just picture those guys talking, walking, etc., as I read the story. (Well, for some reason my mind created it's own picture of that guy laying on the floor and sleeping like a dog as his legs twitch and jerk)

Like DixieGal said, it made me smile also.

I'm eagerly awaiting your collection....

Thanks for reading, glad the story could make you smile (as it made me smile when writing it) I'm hoping to get everything out before the end of this month, but that's a hope... I'm still deciding which stories to include in Small Victories, and that list changes every day.

haha I just read Sleeping Dogs and loved it!

Its so short that I read it on screen rather than transferring it across to my iLiad.

I've just downloaded Midnight in Paris from Feedbooks and I'm looking forward to reading it.

Actually, I've started reading, can't stop... have to keep reading... Mona Lisa, Louvre here and gone, night, cat... be back in a while...
