Falling Leaves Giveaway~ Usefull things plus an array of Great Books

Hello all of you awesome people and welcome new subscribers to Accent on Romance.

Won’t. He’s the spiritual image of another Feral, Big Red, who was with us for five years.  Big Red refused to come in the house during rain, sleet, freeze or flood.  He spent his old age lounging on a step railing.

If not, I’m in the groove. I’m a published author.” Chatting that up on a first date, or with the carpool mommies, or at cocktail parties has more cachet than saying, “I work at Walmart.”
