    as I have already said…..Wish you could see the grin on my face….you are really good at being a shit disturber ….literally ….lol…I hope the mayor has a good sense of humor…..I am very grateful that you found inspiration in a little village and a artist who loves where she lives….and for the record for those who may not get your wild and crazy sense of humour….some of my favorite artists live in Galt and Preston and we are very fortunate to live in such a inspiring city like Cambridge. you writing about the arts is a big BONUS for us…keep it up 🙂

    Crazy story Scot, but a fine tribute to a very talented lady and great all-around person!

    Congrats on bringing the best out in the Arts. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful artist in Cambridge,
    also an amazing person who does promotes as many local business as she can.

    This is what I want to shift the focus on my writing to, writing about local musicians and artists. I’ve made my reputation writing about local politicians, but I’m sick of it. The interns are more than willing to take over those duties, and you can expect some really good stories out of them. I have several friends running in October, and so have decided to ignore the election until the last possible minute.

    I have to tweak it a bit before publication. I have to work in how Wendy, the turncoat with the hyphenated surname, lured poor Jake into her store. And of course, we all know who cast the artistic spell.Her presence explains a lot. (that’s where I found Sharon, sitting in Jodi’s shop. She had been there for three days. She enjoyed herself, though.)

    Oh, for the record, some of it is actually true. (This will be clear when it’s printed)
    in 1915 Galt was incorporated as a city, A.E. Buchanan was Mayor and my Great-Grandfather Archiblad was on council. (I’m really glad I wasn’t named Archie, my father was!)
    Also, “Oli” is Hebrew for “Light”
    Light Shade? Baa haa haaa
    I also considered Bella-Donna as a name for Nighrt Shade’s sister.
    You’d be surprised how many people will pick that up.
