  1. Mr. Scriptor,
    I tried to send a pdf to you in this message window, but in keeping with words being words, I couldn't pin them down. If there is a way to send the pdf to you offline I would prefer to do that. The words in question? From your words words words blog. Wondered if you might like to see what one of your readers did with them?
    I enjoy your blogs.

  2. I looked at your personal profile but there isn't one, Karen. If I had an email for you I'd send you mine!
