Sundays are good. Very good with WEWRIWA. More snow? Yes, but who cares. Soon spring with crocus pushing through the dirt. . .Is there dirt under the mountains of snow?

Continuing with my new book, She Didn’t Say No. I love the title. It conjures up possibilities. The story begins in 1960. Last week at the college library on Saturday, nineteen year old studious Grace Meredith meets Big Man on Campus, Scott Dwyer, Captain of the Swim team, who has taken an interest in her. What happens next unfolds a bit more of the story. They talk about school, goals at first.

I liked his self confidence, something I lacked even though I’d boasted about not being afraid of anything although my parents frightened me with their expectations and pressure. I slammed the book shut and jumped to my feet, “Scott, how about playing hooky from studying and let’s go to the beach.”
And we were off to the beach in his shiny yellow Volkswagon Bug for the beginning of the ride that changed my life.
