Appreciation to a Critic

Dear Tyler:

Thank you for taking the time to listen/view my submissions. Although you weren't exactly bowled over with the work (ahem!), it's still cool BDC Wire invited participants and gave honest responses.

God, I guess I should blog this, since it is going to be out there for posterity!

Best to you with your writing, radio, and aspiring film career,

Stephen

SNAPPY: Here to make you happy

Snappy is here to make you happy.  I'm just having some doubts that this cut-out is Snappy.  It looks more like George Mac Willis the number one body builder of Canada.  And you are correct, he was a Lumber Jack before he became famous.  Here he is without his red checked flannel…

S. St John aka Tofu: Trouble at the Lake

Paint, Maps, Images & History.  Tofu has it all going for him.  Yes, this was in 1814 and the place of the bloodiest battlefield in the history of Canada.  Except for one other time when the Browns chopped down the Maple trees of the Tremblays.  Also known as the stickiest battlefield in Canada. 

Thank you Tofu, you really have it all together.  I am inspired indeed…
